HOW TO: Enchiladas...Tutorial from a "Rookie"
I had "take out" Enchiladas and thought "can I make it better" Did some Research, asked an expert...thanks BOB BRISKET!!:-PThe last time I sought Bob's advice, I did this:
I saw different "red" sauces, one was chilie based, and one was tomato based, I knew because of the family I couldn't make the all chile one, A few PM's to Bob, and he said, add the 2 together! Done deal! taste of both!
New Mexico Chilies
Into the bath, simmered for 15 min. Until rehydreated
Sauted onions, and garlic w/ Salt and Pepper in food processor, then strained..(bits of skin)
Started "Tomato" based sauce.. 1- 28 oz can Crushed Tomato, 2- 8 oz. can Tomato sauce, S & P, garlic, 2 chicken bouillon cubes, water to thin, a little sugar to cut down acidity, then added Chilie Sauce to mixture for extra flavor and heat.
Used leftover smoked chicken breast
cooked up some "uncooked" tortillas from costco, good stuff! (for store bought)
I "wet" the chicken w/ sauce, added cheese. Stuffed Flour tortillas, yes I know, real Enchiladas use corn totillas...:icon_blush:
Sauced, cheesed Enchiladas, not too much, I was told it would make a doughy mess, since it was "uncooked" tortillas.
covered w/ Monterey Jack/Cheddar.
Baked at 350* for 30 min. UMMMM...melted goodness!
My Plate! What do you think? This my friends did not suck! Homade sauce was the bomb! I'll never buy canned sauced again! Thanks Bob!! I hope I did my "mentor" proud!

Also make my own red and green chilie sauce, try making with green chilies (no tomato suace though) it is the bomb. I used to also boil the dried red or green chilies, then tried using same amount of water only putting in microwave. Put water, chilies in microwave on high for 20 minutes and works the same as boiling for 20 minutes.

Mentor???? Roy, I'm taking notes from you.............AND refried beans. You went all out. That not only gets hit, but gets hit twice more on Sunday! :thumb: Anytime Brother. Anytime. Now you need to try an all chile sauce. I guarantee, you will like it too.

Enlighten me, Bob-san, on this Sonoran style, is this like a caasserole?
