Gourmet White Corn & Scallion Tamales with Mole Sauce

This Week’s RSF Fresh Market Recipe is Unique and Delicious!


What you will need and where to find it:

For Dinner –

  • 1 bunch fresh cilantro (Kwano or Sage Mountain Farms)
  • 2 Ripe Avocados (Atkins)
  • 4 Heirloom Tomatoes (Valdivia Farms)
  • 1 Package White Corn & Scallion Tamales (Gourmet Tamales)

For the Mole Sauce –

  • 2 garlic cloves (Valdivia Farms)
  • 2 tablespoons olive oil (Thyme of Essence)
  • 1 teaspoon red-pepper flakes
  • 2 plum tomatoes, cored and chopped (Valdivia Farms)
  • 1 ounce semisweet chocolate, chopped
  • 1/4 teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • 1/4 cup raisins
  • 2 corn tortillas (6 inches each), cut into 1/2-inch-wide strips (Gourmet Tamales)
  • 1 small onion, halved and thinly sliced (Sage Mountain or Valdivia Farms)
  • 1 dried ancho chile
  • Coarse salt and ground pepper
  • 1/3 cup blanched almonds (Hopkins Almonds or Smit Orchards)

To Prepare:

In a large heavy-bottom saucepan, heat oil over medium flame. Add ancho chile and cook until soft, for 30 to 45 seconds.  Remove with a spoon, leaving oil in the pan and di-stem. Set ancho chili aside.


Now, in the same saucepan, add garlic, blanched almonds and tortillas; cook, stirring, until lightly browned, 2 minutes;  then transfer to these items and the ancho chili to a high speed blender while leaving oil in the saucepan.


Add onion and tomatoes to pan; cook until tomatoes begin to blacken, 8 to 10 minutes (reduce heat if necessary). Add raisins and pepper flakes; transfer to the high speed blender.


Add the chocolate and cinnamon to high speed blender; puree until a paste begins to form, about 3 minutes. Add 1/4 cup water; puree until smooth, about 7 minutes more. Season with salt and pepper and pour over warm tamales.  Serve with Sliced Avocados and Tomatoes and top with fresh Cilantro

Buen Provecho!
