When you ask someone for their favorite Mexican dish you will probably get a few different answers. You will hear burrito, tacos, menudo and chile rellenos. But, the most popular one you will almost certainly hear is enchiladas. That statement brings to question, “How to make good enchiladas?”.
For those of you who are unfamiliar with an enchilada here is a brief description. An enchilada is a tortilla, usually corn, wrapped around a filling. The filing can be chicken, beans, potatoes, sea food or any other filling that you can think of. The tortilla is then topped with a chili sauce. After being baked, the enchilada is usually served with a side of rice and beans.
People are always looking for good enchilada recipes. The same recipe usually circulates around. Instead of giving you a basic enchilada recipe that everyone will have, we will be giving you an Enchilada Suizas recipe. Enchilada Suizas are Swiss style enchiladas.
This enchilada derived from the Swiss immigrants in Mexico that produced their own cheese and cream. The enchilada suizas are topped with cheese and crema, also known as sour cream.
To make this recipe easier, we will be using Del Real Foods Pork Chile Verde as a filling. We will also be using Del Real Foods Rice and Beans as the side dishes.
