Here's tonight's Enchilladas Suizas:
Trying something new with Chilli Con Carne since neither of us really wanted to eat much on Friday night:
... leaving me a heap of Chilli Con Carne to make into tonight's dinner - Enchilladas Suizas:
It was a bit of a dairy-fest ... so primally okay, given the choices ... the tortilla were made from cream cheese and eggs, the cheese sauce from a roux of butter and manioc flour, buttermilk and cheddar. Touch of mustard, too. English, naturally. Salsa of tomato, cucumber, spring onions and olives, some coriander, good grind of black pepper and some sea salt. Glass of Merlot. What a dinner!
I just had a bunch of live pate with 2 sticks of celery and a carrot. LOL....stuff can be really filling when you pile it on HEAVY.
I've made a sort of hybrid of moussaka and lasagna...
oven roasted some sliced zucchini, eggplant, and really ripe tomatoes. Browned up some ground grass-fed beef with some leftover ground beef & liver, added a couple of heads of garlic (yes, whole heads, cleaned and chopped well in food processor). Added one can of fire-roasted chopped tomatoes & green chilies.
Made a cheese layer of whole milk ricotta, whole milk mozz, 4 eggs, and a huge amount of fresh basil, with a blob of kefir yogurt. Blended it all together. Oh, and a bit of shaved Parmesan.
First layer: roasted eggplant.
Second Layer: ground beef mixture.
Third layer: roasted eggplant
Fourth layer: roasted tomatoes
Fifth layer: roasted zucchini
Sixth layer: cheese layer.
Baked at 325F, covered with foil, for 90 minutes, now browning without the cover. Smells wonderful.
What's for supper? Let's see... we have three things. First off we've got the beef soup, made from REAL bone broth! It has cabbage, carrots, celery, mushrooms and meat I saved from the original broth making process. Spices, it has lemongrass, fresh basil, coriander, cumin and salt and pepper.
Next on the table is curried parsnips in coconut milk. Delicious! They have celery and of course, curry powder.
Last but not least is seared mahi-mahi. It was briefly marinated in lemon juice with salt and pepper then pan fried in coconut oil. Yum!
Damn this was healthy

Please tell about the tortilla!!! I've been looking for a primal crepe or tortilla recipe.
Easy, Waterjen - 1oz of cream cheese per egg. Whisk together, pour into a buttered frying skillet (6"), roll the batter around, let it sit until it's coming away from the edges, gently release from the pan and flip. They're not stretchy, but work well as crepes.
1oz/1 egg will make 2.
For stretchiness, add in some tapioca starch.
For naan, tapioca starch and baking soda.
Dinner tonight was stir fry veggies and tilapia fillets. Lots of chilli!
Sweet potato, broccoli and oven-barbecued brisket.
