Okay, first off don't get freaked
out by the rabbit thing. This city girl was absolutely opposed
to rabbit until it was served to me like sweet and sour chicken.
I was told it was chicken, and upon first bite I thought that
it was the best chicken I had ever had. With that said, should
you choose to try this, I think you will enjoy.
Preparing this dish is an event
do yourself a favor give yourself 24 hours to complete it.
1 healthy bunch of Cilantro
3 cloves garlic
A pinch of Kosher Salt (I love that stuff)
A large package of corn tortillas
2 cups or more of Broth or Water
1 large can of Enchilada Verde (Green) Sauce (I can't make everything
Some shredded cheese (sharp cheddar or jack)
Black Olives or Green Spanish Olives
Get the grill started cause you
are going to grill the rabbit first. Gather your hickory sticks.
(Dip the hickory sticks in some water before putting on the
open flame. I don't know what that's supposed to do, but that's
how my husband does it. Oh and for the Love of all that's holy....please
don't use lighter fluid.)
When you have completely cooked
the meat , let it cool. (Remember to refrigerate the meat or
you could have some nasty issues).
Once it's cool to touch (can still
be warm, cut the the rabbit off the bones. I usually use my
hands (well washed of course) this way I can get every last
little bit of meat.
Cut up meat into smaller pieces
and place in a bowl.
Chop your onion, cilantro and
garlic and mix in with meat, add a pinch o' Kosher Salt. LET
SIT OVERNIGHT IN FRIDGE
Next morning, prepare the tortillas.
Preheat oven to 350
Get out a large pot and boil your
broth (or water)
Dip the tortillas one by one in the boiling water for a few
seconds. This makes them much easier to roll.
Next get your baking sheet or
pan ready for the enchilada
Place the meat and some cheese
in the boiled tortilla and roll the tortilla. Continue this
process until you have run out of A: the meat filling or B:
Pour the Enchilada Verda Sauce
over the enchiladas, garnish the tops with some cheese and olives.
Bake at 350 for 30 - 35 minutes
depending on your oven.
Serve with refried beans and rice.
MMMMMM now that's good eating!
