  • ¾ cup heavy cream or milk
  • ½ cup Central Market organic chicken broth

  • 1 12 oz. container Fresh Pico de Gallo

This is a taste sensation! Thanks to HEB Cooking Connection for this delicious recipe! The cream and the pico go perfectly together. It’s easy too. Find the ingredients at any HEB store with a Cooking Connection.


Heat oven to 325°. Place all ingredients in a 9” x 13” pan and cover with foil. Bake for 1 ½  hours, stirring half way through. Serve warm. Garnish if desired. Can also be done in a crock pot (3-4 hours) or microwave (cook on high about 20 minutes stirring several times).

Exactly what is the ½ cup Texas on a Plate Pasilla de Oaxaca Sauce. I am sure I can find it in our new HEB that is opening soon in Boerne, I would just like to know what it is. Thanks,

I found it at the HEB in the Woodlands. It’s at the cooking station where they demo dishes and give you samples.

I am preparing a big Thanksgiving dinner down here in Oaxaca and this looks fantastic. I’m very happy that it can be made in the microwave since I will not have any space in my horno. Now, however, to my embarasment, I have to inquire of one of my guests, who is the best cook in Oaxaca, what the heck pasilla is. She has taught me to make mole to die for and if you ever want the secret hints I will be glad to let you know.

For years the favorite of all Oaxacans at parties has been the HEB brisket that I bring back every time I cross the border.

    It’s a commonly used chile – very dark brownish color…rich flavor and medium heat. Google pasilla images and I’ll bet you recognize it. WOW…sounds like you’re in for a fabulous meal. Enjoy!!! :)

‘Texas on a Plate’ brand Pasilla de Oaxaca Sauce
I can not find it. Been to two HEB’s and both did not have it. Boerne and Leon Springs.
Anyone know where it is?
