Mexican Chow Mein

Tonight was Mexican Chow Mein. This is a recipe I made up last year when we had too many mildly spicy peppers. I adapted my Chinese Tomato Chow Mein Recipe to create this.

Mexican Chow Mein
2 Tbsp salsa
2 T cornstarch
1/2 tsp chili powder
1 tsp cumin
1/4 tsp dried cilantro (1 tsp fresh)
1/4 tsp dried oregano
3-4 Tbsp salad oil, divided
1 lb. hamburger
1 small onion, chopped
1 clove garlic, minced
1/2 tsp salt
dash pepper
2 green peppers or other pepper (annaheim, pablano, etc.), sliced
3 Tomatoes peeled & cut into wedges or 2 14-oz cans diced
1/2 C bouillon or consomme
Cooked Rice
Corn Chips

In a small bowl combine salsa, cornstarch, chili powder, cumin, cilantro, &
oregano. Brown hamburger in 1 1/2 Tbsp-2 Tbsp oil with onion, garlic, salt & pepper. Remove from pan and combine with salsa mixture. Cook peppers lightly in remaining oil. Remove from pan and add beef mixture back into the pan and cook for 2-3 minutes. Add peppers, tomatoes and bouillon. Cook until the sauce is thick. Serve over rice and top with corn chips. Makes 6 servings.
