    Source: Sur La Table - The Arizona Republic July 25, 2001

    8 ounces grated Asadero cheese (may substitute
        mozzarella or pepper jack cheese)
    1 cup ricotta cheese
    1 egg
    1/2 cup Parmesan cheese
    1/2 teaspoon chili powder
    1/2 teaspoon cumin
    Salt and pepper, to taste
    Roasted Corn and Avocado Sauce (recipe follows)

    For filling: In a medium bowl, combine Asadero (or mozzarella or pepper jack cheese), ricotta, egg, Parmesan, chili powder, cumin, salt and pepper. Roll out dough to No. 6 setting on a pasta machine.

    To stuff ravioli: Drop spoonfuls of filling at even intervals onto a sheet of dough. Lightly wet the dough around the filling. Press a top sheet of dough onto the bottom one at the wet parts. Cut out ravioli with a knife, pizza wheel or ravioli stamp. Or use a ravioli form according to its directions.

    Bring a large pot of salted water to a boil. Cook the ravioli for 2 to 3 minutes. Serve with Roasted Corn and Avocado Sauce.

    Makes 4 servings.

    Roasted Corn and Avocado Sauce
    2 poblano chiles, roasted, peeled and chopped (see note)
    1 avocado, peeled
    1/2 cup fresh cilantro, chopped
