    *Oaxaca Sub

     *(Accent on the middle syllable, as in wah – Haw – kah)

    Open faced Oaxaca Sub with Ancho Jicama slaw, turkey molé, topped with Oaxaca, tequila, and mesquite cheese sauce. A side of Yucca fries with Ancho Lime dip.

    Smoked turkey, cubed or chunked

    Molé de Oaxaca (The recipe is courtesy of my 96 yr. Old aunt)

    Cheese sauce:


    Mesquite flour

    Smoked Queso Oaxaca (Queso means cheese)

    José Cuervo Tequila

    Half & half

    Jicama slaw:





    Canola oil

    Fresh lime juice

    Rice vinegar



    Peeled and cut into strips

    Ancho Lime Dip:

    Sour cream


    Honey powder

    Ancho chile powder

    Fresh lime juice

    I used a Jennie-O turkey that already had a brining solution added, so I thawed it and it went straight into the smoker, no rub or butter. I smoked it using maple, apple, and mesquite. Once smoked, I cubed the breast and left it to sit in the molé overnight while it was in the fridge.



    My aunt didn’t give me the recipe for the molé; she just gave me a small plastic bag and told me no ratios or quantities. Oh well…



    I already had some Queso Oaxaca that I had smoked using my AMNS with cherry sawdust. This I used in my cheese sauce.


    Next day I bought some Ciabatta bread, put a bed of Ancho Jicama slaw on it, then added the warmed turkey molé. I topped it with my smoked Queso Oaxaca cheese sauce, which uses tequila for flavor and mesquite flour for thickening.

    For a side dish, I made Yucca fries, along with my Ancho Lime dip of cinnamon, honey powder, Ancho chile powder and limejuice.


    Thanks for checking out my entry.

    Man oh Man there Rich thats one heck of a sandwich. I could ony wish for the Mol'e recipe myself. We did  turkey dinner at one of my cousins aunts (it's a Gravely Thing) and I couln't talk a mol'e recipe out of them either. But one of her sons is sweet on my cousins daughter and I think that might get me some where thou.
