If you love enchiladas as much as I do, you're always on the lookout for good enchilada recipes. There's just something about this popular Mexican favorite that seems to encompass the spirit of authentic Mexican food, perhaps more than any other.
Just think about it: There are chicken enchilada recipes, as well as ones that include beef, pork, shrimp and other seafood. There are ones with no meat at all, but which still include one or more from a wide assortment of cheeses. There are enchilada recipes for vegetarians which forgo the meat - and even the cheese - altogether, although admittedly, these don't rank high on my list of favorites. No offense to you strict vegetarians, but to me, a "real" plate of enchiladas has got to have a healthy portion of cheese, at the very least.
And then you have all the other possible fillings and toppings: green, red, and even cream sauces, and the many possible combinations and/or variations on those (can you say chicken enchiladas suizas?) You can use avocado, black (ripe) olives, as well as cilantro and sour cream - I'm getting very hungry right about now, and I'm only scratching the surface - how about you?
So, if you're looking for the best enchilada recipes, look no further - I hope you can see by now, this is the place. But before going any further, I'll confess: I'm more than a bit picky regarding Mexican food! I hail from Las Cruces, NM, and consider it (along with many friends and family members) the Mexican food capital of the world. As far as I'm concerned - and I've sampled Mexican/"Southwestern" food from many areas - the places that serve authentic Mexican food are few and far between.
But I expect to hear some disagreement on this. Well, here's your chance to post your own recipes and comments - you can link to my blog from here (see below) - and don't be shy! Together, we'll have some fun, share some great recipes, and hopefully discover some great Mexican food together.
In fact, I've found a nice collection of Mexican food recipes, including some very good enchilada recipes. I've yet to try them all and obviously, you'll find quite a bit more than just enchilada recipes, but it looks like a winner to me so far. If you decide to try it, please let me know what you think - yet another subject to comment on in my blog. Looking forward to hearing from you!
