I’ve been tweaking my family chili verde recipe over the years to cater it to my family’s specific tastes and I think this turns out absolutely wonderfully.

It doesn’t take long to prepare and it works great as a light dinner or hearty brunch. I’ve also served this crepe dish at get togethers and it always wows my attendees.

Corn Chip Crepes

  • Combine all crepe ingredients in your blender. Cover and process for thirty to forty seconds. Scrape down the sides of your container with a spatula and process for a few more seconds. Crepe batter should be smooth and consistent.
  • Spray your frying pan and bring it to medium low heat.
  • Test your batter by pouring a half tablespoon of batter in your heated pan. Tilt your pan in a circular motion. Your batter should move around your pan freely. If it doesn't lower your heat a touch. Once it does remove test batter from pan.
  • For each of your corn chip crepes, add three to four tablespoons of batter to your heated pan. Batter should thinly coat the bottom of your pan. Heat for about one minute. Crepe is ready to flip once it can be lifted without breaking.
  • Cook the second side of your corn chip crepe for one minute. It is done cooking when light brown spots begin to form. Remove from pan and repeat until all crepes are made.

  • In your skillet, melt butter and add onion. Sauté until onions are soft.
  • Add cooked pork to skillet along with chilis and juice, salt, pepper, and water.
  • Bring to a boil. Cover and simmer over medium heat for twenty-five to thirty minutes. Your mixture should be thickened. Add hot pepper sauce to taste.
  • Blend melted butter and flour. Gradually stir into skillet mixture. Remove from heat.
  • Add filling to each crepe. Fold or roll each crepe and set seem side down on oven safe serving dish.
  • Pour remaining sauce on top of crepes and sprinkle with cheese.
  • Bake for ten to fifteen minutes.
  • Garnish with cilantro, serve immediately and enjoy!

Notes

Conclusion

My boys absolutely love spicy crepes so I really kick up the heat on these chili verde crepes. If you like them a bit milder they still taste wonderful with all these amazing flavors coming together just perfectly.

They do take a little longer to prepare than many of the crepes I make but the longer prep time is well worth it. And being under an hour start to serve, they really don’t take that long anyway.

I love using fresh green chili when in season but this dish is also tasty using canned chilis.

If you plan to make these for a get together meal, make sure to at least make a double batch as they go fast.
