This is more beans than you’ll need for the enchiladas; serve some on the side or save them for lunch. Pureed with a stick blender or food processor, these make fabulous bean dip.
4 slices bacon, diced
GREEN CHILE SAUCE
Anaheim chiles vary in heat. This sauce usually comes out fairly mild, but sometimes it’s more like medium-hot. For the guaranteed nonspicy variation, see the note below.
1-1/2 pounds fresh Anaheim chiles
MAKING THE ENCHILADAS
Because these enchiladas are broiled, not baked, it’s vital to have the beans, sauce, and bowls hot when you assemble them. You’ll need four soup plates with rims. Unless you have a large oven, you’ll probably need to broil two plates at a time; don’t worry, the enchiladas will stay hot. I’ve made these as cheese enchiladas by simply omitting the chicken, and they were still great.
1/4 cup corn oil, lard or vegetable oil
4 broiler-proof ceramic soup plates with rims
