Last Spring we were going through Longview Texas and ate our dinner at a place called "Papacita's. We had the best thing called FLAMEDO but for the life of me I can't find a recipe for it. If anyone has a recipe, I would be so grateful. We just don't have anything like that here in Maine! Boy oh Boy, was it good, I've thought about it and wanted to make some for almost a year.........can someone please help me?
Hi! I'm not from Texas, but would the rest. have a web site where you could check out and see if they would give you a recipe? I have never heard of it myself....sounds intresting!
Check out my cooking facebook page! Cooking in Jill's Kitchen~
Been a big fan of TOH since I was a 'tween'!!! I was sooooo excited to be asked to become a Volunteer Field Editor in June 2013!!
Could this be what you are looking for?
Jet,thanks so much for responding to my post. I did call the restaurant and the yound man I spoke with said his wife makes it and so I may be able to get it from her. If I ever do, I'll post it on here to share with everyone. It was really good. Thanks again, Anne (from Maine)
FAJITA FLAMEADO A spicy blend of beef or chicken fajitas, sautéed mushrooms, bell pepper, onions, Monterey Jack cheese and a drizzle of Chili con Queso, baked and then served Flaming at your table.
Found this from their web site to help us come up with a recipe. I think you could grill fajitas for one meal and then make this with the leftovers for the next meal. Place all the cooked ingredients in a baking dish and then cover with Monterey Jack Cheese and bake till bubbly, add Queso just before serving.
Wanted to say to that there are some Mexican cheeses at the store that would be so good cooked in this. Can't recall the name and don't have any in my fridge right now but the cheeses are usually round and white and located with the ethnic refrigerated items.
Hi cheaperbythedozen (Sandra),
I am just down Hwy 79 from you, just a little north of Thrall. DH had a Dr's appointment in Round Rock this morning, and we stopped and had lunch at the Chili's in Hutto on the way home.
Good to know that someone on this board is so close. Moved to Taylor in 1998 from my home town in Hobbs New Mexico. Lived there for 4 years and have been in Hutto ever since. Lowe's is in my back yard practically and the toll road in my front. :)
Hi! I'm from Longview - and I know this is an old post, so you probably already have your answer.
Your problem in not finding the recipe is simply spelling. The dish is FLAMEADO - it's a 4 syllable Spanish word. If you google or search for QUESO FLAMEADO you'll find a recipe for it. I agree with you - Papacita's has GREAT Tex-Mex food. I actually prefer Posados and Jalapena Tree, but Papa's is good, too. And I just love the reaction of Northern folks to our Southwest flavors!! My aunt and uncle lived in Ohio for 20 years, and we ate nothing but Mexican food when they came to visit because they missed it so much. Now our son is a pastor in Preston CT - same thing - all he wants is Mexican cuisine when he comes home. Everything else he can get up there, even Southern fried chicken, but not good ole Tex-Mex!! And when I go visit him - lobster at Nyack and Mystic, fresh scallops!! Hope you have a Merry Christmas. Come back to Longview and try Posados!!
