Ingredients

  • 1 cup all-purpose flour
  • 2/3 cup water
  • 1/2 cup milk
  • 3   eggs
  • 2 tbsp plus 1 tsp butter, melted, divided
  • 1 tsp salt, divided
  • 2   chipotle peppers in adobo sauce

Loosen edges and turn over; cook 5-10 seconds. Remove from pan to Parchment Paper; repeat for a total of 12 crêpes.

  2. For sauce, place peppers, crema and remaining salt into blender; blend until smooth. For filling, combine chicken, cheese, onion, cilantro and half of the sauce in Classic Batter Bowl; mix well. Microwave on HIGH 2-3 minutes or until hot, stirring halfway through.

  3. Fill each crêpe with filling; roll up and place seam side down onto Large Sheet Pan. Cover with foil; bake 8-10 minutes or until hot. Transfer crêpes to serving platter; top with remaining sauce and additional chopped cilantro, if desired.
