Ingredients

SAUCE:

4 C Water
1 lb Tomatillos
1/2 Medium white onion, peeled and chopped
4 Cloves garlic, peeled
4 Serrano or jalape
CHEESE:

8 Slices Chihuahua cheese, 1/4" thick
2 Beaten eggs
1 C Almond flour
Vegetable oil for frying

Directions

SAUCE:



Place the water, tomatillos, onion, garlic and chiles in a medium saucepan, bring to a boil, and cook until the tomatillos are soft, about 10 minutes.



Remove the boiled ingredients from the saucepan, and put them in the blender with the cilantro and just enough of the cooking water to permit easy movement of the blender blades. Puree till smooth.



Heat the oil in another saucepan, add the blended ingredients, and cook for 10 minutes.



Gradually add the remaining cooking water until the sauce reaches desired consistency; it should be medium-thick.



Season to taste with salt.



CHEESE:



Dip each slice of cheese in the beaten egg, then in the almond flour.



Place the cheese slices on a rack for 15-20 minutes; this will make the flour adhere better.



Do not refrigerate during this time, since cold food soaks up more oil when being fried.



Heat the oil in a large skillet, until just moving but not smoking.



Fry the cheese slices, turning once, until golden brown on both sides.



Serve immediately with the tomatillo sauce spooned over.
