Ingredients

  • 1/4

    cup canola oil

  • 4

    serrano chiles, stemmed, seeded, and finely chopped

  • 1

    small white onion, finely chopped

  • 2

    plum tomatoes, cored and finely chopped

  • 2 1/2

    cups ricotta cheese

  • Kosher salt, to taste

Directions

Heat oil in a 12″ skillet over medium-high heat. Add chiles and onion, and cook, stirring, until soft, about 4 minutes. Add tomatoes, and cook, stirring, until almost dry, about 6 minutes. Add ricotta, and cook, stirring often, until mixture begins to turn light brown and ricotta is very smooth and thickened, about 20 minutes. Remove from heat and season with salt; serve immediately with tortillas.
