So, I am kind of excited about these.
First of all, you all know how much I love crepes.
I have perfected the art of making crepes and am trying to use them in every way possible way.
And trust me, I am just getting started.
I have another crepe recipe coming at you guys soonish. It’s a good one!
Alright so here is the deal, it’s Monday and we are probably all tired and wishing it was Friday.
I hear you. All weekend we had the previous owners of the house we live in moving all their stuff out. It’s a long story, too long for a Monday.
So let’s just talk crepechiladas.
I love that word.
Crepechiladas. It just sounds awesome!
In full disclosure my inspiration for these came from Smitten Kitchen. When Deb posted these Charred Corn Crepes I kind of freaked out. I mean charred corn crepes? Heck yes!
Then after about ten full minute of thinking about the crepes it hit me.
I had to turn the crepes into crepechiladas. Honestly, the word just popped into my head and I got so excited. Too excited. I am such a nerd.
So I adapted my favorite crêpe recipe, that I just cannot part ways with, and basically just added some corn. The crepes alone are just amazing.
You will be so happy to have a few leftover because seriously, you’ll be eating them straight from the pan. They are that good. Just add some butter or cotija cheese and your golden. My mom could eat just that for breakfast lunch and dinner and be so happy.
So next was the filling.
Oh the filling. Yeah, that’s pretty darn good too… and easy. Just throw everything in a food processor and blitz away till creamy. Creamy, spicy perfection.
This meal is kind of the perfect end of summer meal.
It’s warm, comforting, creamy and cheesy, but still light, fresh and summery. The corn adds a nice summery touch and the hatch chili enchilada sauce is kind of perfect for this time of year. I would have added a fresh hatch chile, but of course, my lame grocery store was all out.
That was a bummer.
So if you have tons of fresh hatch chilies throw one in!!
Since it is Monday and since Mondays tend to be, well… difficult to get through, I really think you need to go and make these. The hardest part is the crepes and after the fist two flips you’ll get the hang of it.
And it’s so worth it.
CREPECHILADAS people. Get excited. They are crazy good!
Plus, they make Monday a lot more fun. And that makes everyone happy!
