Chicken Stuffed Collard Rolls

I know this is not a vegetarian recipe. There are those in my family who must have meat from time to time. If you eat meat, a recipe like this one is a good way to make a little meat stretch quite a way. And it has collard greens in it, and they are those dark leafies that all the nutritionists say you should eat.

Yields: 5 servings

3/4 lb. cooked chicken
1 can tomatoes or 3-5 large fresh
1 tsp cumin
1 tsp oregano
2 C. cooked quinoa
1 chile ancho or poblano
2-4 chile de arbol
1 onion
4 cloves garlic
4 Tbsp chopped cilantro
Mexican cheese or parmesan
1 bunch collard greens (about 16 large leaves)

Cook tomatoes, onions, spices, garlic until soft. Whirl in blender and strain. Mix in chicken and quinoa and cook on low.

Meanwhile, pare down the thick stalk in the center of the collard leaves and steam them until they are soft and bright green.

Add the cilantro to the filling. Put 2 generous Tbsp. filling on each leaf and roll up. Place on oiled baking tray and top with the cheese. Bake 20 minutes at 350 F.
