Serves To:USMetric
2   large baking potatoes
5   ancho chiles stemmed and seeded
3   guajillo chiles stemmed and seeded
1   red onion thinly sliced
1 Tablespoon(T)  fresh lemon juice
1/2 Cup(c)  roasted garlic puree
1 Tablespoon(T)  achiote paste
1/2 Cup(c)  plut 2t olive oil
1 Pound(lb)  beef tenderloin cut into bite-sized chunks
1   freshly ground pepper
2 Cup(c)  chopped spinach
8   corn tortillas
1 Cup(c)  crumbled feta cheese
1/2 Cup(c)  chopped fresh cilantro


BAKE THE POTATOES in a 350-degree oven for 50 minuutes.

Meanwhile, soak the chiles in hot water for 30 minutes.

Marinate half of the onion with the lemon juice and salt.

Drain the chiles, reserving the water, and transfer them to a blender. Add the garlic puree, achiote paste, and 1 cup of the chile water. Blend until smooth.

Transfer to a shallow bowl and season to taste with salt. Set aside.

In a medium skillet, heat the 2 tablespoons oil over high heat. Add the beef and the unmarinated onion and cook, stirring, for 2 minutes, or until the beef is seared. Add the spinach and cook and stir for 1 minute, or until wilted.

Remove from the heat.

When the potatoes are cool enough to handle, peel and mash them lightly. Add the beef mixture to the potatoes along with salt and pepper to taste. Mix well.

Place the same skillet over a medium heat and add the 1/2 cup oil. Once hot, dip each tortilla into it for 2 seconds, then into the chile mixture until well coated, and finally back into the oil. Cook each for 10 to 20 seconds, or until the tortilla is soft, and drain on paper towels.

Divide the beef mixture among the tortillas, roll them up, and place them seam-side down in a greased baking dish. Top them with the chile sauce.

Place in the oven for 7 minutes, or until bubbling hot.

Remove from the oven, transfer to plates, and garnish with the onion, feta, and cilantro.
