I’m on a Hatch Chili kick as you can see. Here’s another good and wholesome unprocessed meal that’s gluten, GMO, and dairy free that has hatch chilies!!! Unlike your typical shepherd’s pie, I used cauliflower in place of potatoes and threw a sprinkle of bacon on top since everything is better with a little bacon!
Prep Time: 30 min
Cook Time: 25-35 min
- 1/2 lb Bison, ground
- 2 Cups Mixed Organic Squash
- 1 Cup Organic Carrots
- 1/2 Cup Onion
- 1/2 Cup Tomatoes
- 1 Garlic Clove, minced
- 2 Hot Roasted Hatch Chilies
- 2 Slices of Cooked Bacon (Nitrate and preservative free), chopped.
- 1/2 Cup Coconut Milk (you can use lite if you’d like).
- 1/2 Cup No Sodium Beef or Bison Broth
- Celtic Salt
- 1/2 Head of Cauliflower
- In a large skillet or dutch oven, brown meat with onion and garlic until brown, once brown add stock and all veggies EXCEPT cauliflower and 1 tsp of salt and 1/2 tsp. of pepper. Cook for 15 min on low to simmer. Taste and add salt and pepper if needed.
- While Mixture is cooking, bring a large pot of water to boil and cook cauliflower until done. Blend/pulse in a blender with 1/2 Cup Coconut Milk and add salt to taste. (Think mashed potatoes)! (You can add butter if you would like here, like a TBS).
- In a medium casserole and meat and veggie mixture and top with cauliflower puree, spread evenly. Top with bacon.
- Save to bake later: Wrap with foil and place in fridge. When you are ready to re-heat heat oven to 350F and cook for 25 -35 min or until hot in middle.
- If you are cooking right away heat oven to 350 F and cook for 10-15 min.
This is a fun spin on chicken enchiladas and if you are looking to eliminate processed/GMO foods (like corn tortillas) you will love this. This is ALMOST a dairy free version and can easily be dairy free with one tweak., don’t add the cheese 🙂 It’s also gluten free.
I’m in love with hatch chilies and I always look forward to August when they come out!
The sweet potato gives these enchiladas a nice texture and the slight sweetness goes great as a replacement for corn tortillas. Give it a try and let me know how it goes 🙂
Prep: 30 min
Cook Time: 15-30 min
Makes: 7 enchiladas
- 2 Chicken breast, cooked and shredded. Get pasture raised chickens.
- 3 Hot Roasted Hatch Chilies and 3 Mild Roasted Hatch Chilies, remove the top.
- 1 Organic Purple Onion, small (about 1/4 Cup).
- 1 Organic White Onion, small (about 1/4 Cup).
- 2 Cloves of Wild Garlic
- 1/2 C. Organic Coconut Milk (you can use lite if you would like).
- 1/2 Teaspoon of Celtic Salt.
- 1/4 Teaspoon Cumin
- 1 or 2* Organic Sweet Potato, sliced thinly long ways on mandolin.
- 1 Teaspoon of organic coconut oil for baking dish.
- OPTIONAL: Kerrygold Cheddar Cheese (Grass Fed Cow Cheese) for topping the enchiladas if you desire.
- Blend up hatch chilies, onions, garlic, coconut milk, and spices in a blender until consistency of salsa.
- Cook on med / low for 25 min.
- Bring a large pot of water to boil. Add sliced sweet potatoes to boiling water and cook for 6 min. Drain and set aside.
- Reserve 1/2 Cup of hatch chili salsa. Mix chicken into the remaining large portion of salsa.
- In a large baking dish smear the coconut oil down and lay down 7 or the 14 sweet potato slices (I broke some while slicing so I just placed them back together). *If you want them all to be “perfect” you may get 2 sweet potatoes to have reserves just in case…
- Add chicken and salsa mixture to each potato and top with another slice of potato. Once you are done take the reserved salsa and put a little bit on the top of each potato enchilada then sprinkle with cheese.
- Either reserve dish to bake later or bake NOW at 300 F for 15-20 min.
- If you are waiting for later, heat oven to 375 F and bake for 30 min or until warm all the way through.
This is an awesome and simple meal that’s full of flavor and a heat, a good heat… not too long lasting but just right. This is a good dish to prep early in the day and cook later on for dinner!
