This is how I first had chicken enchiladas with green sauce, at my favorite local Mexican restaurant, "El Azteco" in Lansing MI. Made with swiss cheese. Not that there's anything wrong with other kinds of cheese, but thanks for sharing this unique way of making the dish! Yum! Not a diet food but impressive for a special meal!

The video was helpful and I especially like it comes from a Mexican kitchen. I have not made the enchiladas yet. I know there are many ways to make enchiladas. What you left out of the recipe was the cilantro and the tomatoes used are tomatillos the ones with the husk. Its the green sauce you purchase in cans.
  • the recipe and how to make them.
  • Is the fact that not all the ingredients are specific and which ones to use exactly. I am American of Mexican descent and know better, but some people who are not might think the tomatoes are the regular ones.

I printed out this recipe and started to make looks like it was missing some information...I've never made a Sour Cream I had to look in another didn't say what to do with all the extra Sour Cream Sauce - so I assumed it was supposed to be poured on the top - but then again I had way too much salsa sauce and had to store it...didn't know if it was to be baked or not - covered or not...??? But guess I'll bake it until the cheese melts? Guess I'll learn by trail and error ! Maybe I need to buy the book to get the rest of the recipe ?

I think that sauce is definitely the best part of this recipe. It was just delicious and a great compliment to this dish. I work with Better Recipes so I am always reviewing recipes and Mexican Recipes are by far my favorite. My family loved this so much I am sure I will be making it again soon.
