Fettuccine Calliente

This is my interpretation of the Fettuccine Calliente at Starliner Diner in Hilliard, which tastes exactly alike because I buy the chili sauce used in the recipe directly from Starliner. I’ll have to remember to update this post with the recipe later on.

Fettucine Calliente

OK, here it is a year later and I’m finally getting around to including the recipe. :)

Fettuccine Calliente

1 rotisserie chicken, shredded
2 poblano peppers, sliced into thin strips
1 onion, sliced
1/2 bag frozen corn
2 tbsp. oil
1 cup heavy cream, maybe more
2 packages fresh refrigerated fettuccine
20 oz. chili sauce (make your own or buy some from your local Mexican restaurant)

Before starting the sauce, set the water to boil for the fettuccine in a separate pot.

In a saute pan, heat the oil, saute the onions and peppers until slightly softened. Add chicken and corn, saute until warmed. Add the chili sauce, stir. Heat until warmed through. Add the cream to taste, and while sauce is warming through, start cooking the fettuccine. Drain and toss hot fettuccine with sauce, and serve.

    The fettucine Caliente looks delicious. I would love to see how it’s made and attempt it myself. I live in cincinnati so maybe I can stop by the restaurant to taste the good food you speak of.

    It’s fairly easy to make – just some onions and poblano peppers and rotisserie chicken and corn sauteed as the base, the secret ingredient is the red chili sauce that I get right from Starliner, finished with some cream to add great mouth feel.

    And please do stop at Starliner if you get the chance, in addition to the dish above they have tons of great Cuban fusion food including some of the best fried plantains on earth!

    [...] For my entree, I chose the Fetuccine Calliente, a chicken and fettucine dish topped with a creamy chipotle sauce (hint: I’ve reproduced the recipe here, and the reason it tastes identical is because I buy the chili sauce from Starliner). It’s a huge serving, definitely enough for two meals, and is served with their Cuban bread and a salad. I have to admit, as many times as I’ve gone there, I seem to either get the Cuban sandwich or the fetuccine, unless there’s a good special that night – which brings me to another hint – check the specials board on your way in, some of the best dishes are listed there – the ropa vieja being my favorite of their recurring ones.

    Wow, this looks good right now… Oh so creamy and the recipe contains some of my very favorite things, including chili sauce and poblano peppers! Yum! This picture also reminds me that I want to make some homemade fettucini in the very near future. Beautiful blog by the way!
