Two Tasty Enchilada Recipes

An enchilada is a corn tortilla wrapped around a filling and topped with chili sauce. There are various recipes that you can choose from if you want to make some authentic Mexican food recipes.

This recipe can feature meat, poultry, beans, cheese, or a combination of these. The most important parts are the corn tortilla and the chili sauce and enchiladas are amongst the most popular Mexican food recipes ordered at Mexican restaurants.

Sonora Style Enchiladas

These tasty snacks feature green onions and Longhorn cheese, as well as salad. This is a very simple recipe and it makes a great dinner for a busy weeknight evening.

What you will need:

1 chopped onion
2 cups red chili sauce
4 chopped green onions
1 1/2 cups shredded Longhorn cheese
12 corn tortillas
1/4 shredded lettuce
2 chopped tomatoes
Sour cream and salsa, to serve

How to make them:

Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F. Heat the chili sauce in a pan. Dip a tortilla in the sauce then lay it on a cookie sheet. Ladle a tablespoon of sauce over the tortillas and sprinkle cheese on top.

Add some chopped onion. Repeat this to make a stack of three. Bake for ten minutes, then garnish with tomato, lettuce, and green onions. Serve the enchiladas with salsa and sour cream.

Easy Microwave Enchilada Recipe

You can use the microwave to make enchiladas but they will still take a total of about twenty minutes to cook, so the oven might be just as good. If you are using the oven to cook something else though, this microwave enchilada recipe can be handy. The julienne-cut vegetables add nutrition and color to these tasty Mexican snacks and the taco seasoning adds spiciness.

What you will need:

2 tablespoons water
1 sliced onion
1 cup peeled, julienned carrots
1 chopped tomato
2 cups sliced mushrooms
2 cups julienned zucchini
1 chopped green bell pepper
10 corn or flour tortillas
1 envelope taco seasoning mix
1 1/4 cups grated Monterey Jack cheese

How to make them:

Put the water and onion in a microwave-safe dish and cover it. Cook on high for two minutes, and then add the carrots, tomato, mushrooms, zucchini, bell pepper, and taco seasoning. Microwave on high for fourteen minutes or until the vegetables are tender.

Wrap the tortillas with wax paper and cook them on high until they are warm. This will take about fifty seconds. Put a tablespoon of the vegetable mixture at one end of the tortilla and sprinkle a tablespoon of cheese over the top.

Roll the tortillas up and put them seam-side down in a twelve by eight inch dish. Pour the rest of the vegetable liquid over them, then cover the dish with wax paper and cook the tortillas for five minutes on high. Sprinkle the rest of the cheese over them and serve.
