I don’t wish to admit to you what number of occasions I’ve written after which rewritten this put up. What are you able to say a couple of potato tian? It’s crispy! It’s scrumptious! There’s chipotle peppers in it! It appears fancy, but it surely’s very easy!
I needed to make a candy potato tian for Thanksgiving, however I couldn’t get it proper so I made a decision to shelve the thought for some time. After I lastly revisited it, I used to be feeling fairly bored with candy potatoes, so I used Yukon Gold potatoes as an alternative. After which, lastly (FINALLY!), it turned out how I had envisioned. I think that Russet potatoes would work out properly too, however be sure to purchase small ones as a result of the massive ones is perhaps more durable to pack right into a baking dish.
Freezing Leftover Chipotle Peppers
New matter! I really like utilizing chipotle peppers in my cooking, however most recipes solely name for a small quantity and then you definitely’re left with a whole can of them sitting within the fridge.
(And you’ll’t throw away the leftovers! Or no less than I can’t. My mother at all times instructed me that individuals who waste meals go to hell and if I’m going to go to hell, it’s going to be for a greater motive than throwing away chipotle peppers.)
Anyway! Right here’s what you are able to do along with your leftover chipotle peppers. Use an immersion blender, meals processor, or countertop blender to puree the peppers and adobo sauce till clean. You’ll be able to both freeze them in a single small freezer bag or plastic container or freeze single tablespoons of the combination in an ice dice tray. Every tablespoon equals about one chipotle pepper, so the following time you’ve a recipe that requires one, you’ll have them readily available.
