Expert Tips

  • To make ahead, make filling as directed in step 2. Spoon mixture into 1-quart freezer container; allow mixture to cool completely, lightly covered, 30 to 45 minutes in refrigerator. Cover and freeze up to 2 months. When ready to use, thaw completely in refrigerator at least 24 hours. Add thawed mixture to nonstick skillet; heat over medium heat until completely heated through. Then continue with recipe.
  • The serrano chile adds a nice warming spice to the filling. For a less spicy version, omit the chile.
