SAUS-Y JACKFRUIT & HATCH CHILE EGGROLLS WITH CREAMY CILANTRO DIP

Ingredients

   Eggrolls

  • 20 oz can Green Jackfruit in Brine (NOT in syrup // we like Trader Joe’s brand)

  • 1 large Hatch Chile (poblano or Anaheim chiles work well too)

  • 1 Cup SAUS Do-Everything Sauce

  • Eggroll Wrappers

  • Vegetable Oil for frying

   Dip

  • 1 cup Crema Mexicana Table Creme

  • 1 Bunch Fresh Cilantro

  • ½ teaspoon salt

  • Dash of Pepper

 

Directions

   Eggrolls

  1. Thoroughly rinse and drain jackfruit. Then begin sorting. The pieces come in chunks or triangle shapes. Cut off the center “core” portion of the jackfruit that’s tougher in texture and separate it from the rest of the fruit, then chop into smaller pieces. For the remaining portion of the jackfruit that appears more stringy, use your hands or a fork to pull into small shredded pieces. You’re basically trying to get the jackfruit into small, shredded/chopped pieces. Rinse the jackfruit once more in a fine mesh strainer, drain, and thoroughly dry.

  2. Wash and dry the Hatch chile. Place whole chile in toaster oven and toast on high, turning to scorch all sides. Once the skin has blackened evenly, remove with tongs and rinse in cold water. Peel off skin, cut off stem, remove seeds and roughly chop into chunks. (4 oz cans of Hatch chiles are also available if you want to make this part extra easy).

  3. Add shredded jackfruit, chopped chile and SAUS into a bowl and stir until thoroughly mixed.

  4. Lay out an eggroll wrapper out like a diamond, with corners pointing north/south, east/west. Place about 2 tablespoons of the jackfruit mixture in the center, spread like you are making a mini burrito. Fold in the east/west corners to overlap in the center. Take the south corner and fold it over to cover the east/west fold and mixture. Add a dab of SAUS at the top corner to seal the wrapper and roll the folded part of your eggroll and its contents up to finish closing your roll. (as shown in below image).

  5. Fill a medium saucepan with 2 inches of vegetable oil and heat to 350 degrees. Once the oil is hot, place an eggroll in with tongs or strainer ladle. Cook for 60 seconds. The eggroll should be a nice golden color. Remove and place on paper towels to absorbs excess oil. Repeat with the rest of the eggrolls. I found it easiest to only do one or two at a time, as the cook quickly.

   Dip

  1. Rinse and dry cilantro, remove stems and place leaves into a food processor or mini blender. Add 1 cup crema, salt and pepper. Blend until smooth, or just until cilantro leaves are chopped and blended, if you like it with a little more texture. Transfer into a small serving dish for dipping.

  2. Serve eggrolls with Creamy Cilantro Dip and more SAUS. Enjoy!

  3. Eggrolls can be made ahead of time and reheated in your toaster or oven.

SAUS-Y SQUASH BLOSSOM QUESADILLAS

 

Not your average quesadilla!

 

Ingredients
  • 4 to 5 Squash Blossoms, stem removed and roughly chopped

  • 2 Tablespoons Butter 

  • 2 Cloves Fresh Garlic, minced

  • 1 Poblano Pepper, stem and seeds removed and roughly chopped*

  • Spreadable Goat Cheese (or cheese of your choice)

  • SAUS® Do-Everything Sauce

  • Flour Tortillas

 

Directions
  1. Add butter, chopped blossoms, garlic and chopped peppers to sauté pan and cook over medium heat until barely softened. Set aside.

  2. Warm tortilla on flat plan and add a thin layer of cheese on half or all. (warming the tortilla makes it easier to spread the cheese, but you can put the cheese on before warming, if you like).

  3. Add desired amount of blossom mixture to half of the cheesy tortilla. Drizzle with SAUS® and fold over.

  4. Cook until bottom of tortilla starts to turn golden (2-3 minutes). Flip with spatula and cook the other side.

  5. Remove from heat and enjoy!

*I put my pepper in the toaster until the skin begins to blacken. Then run it under cold water and remove the skin,

  before removing the stem and seeds. This adds a nice, smoky flavor and softens the pepper.
