Here I attempt to make chicken enchiladas with mole sauce in the simplest way I could imagine (In Mexico they’re called enmoladas). I used canned chicken and…
those enchilada’s looked so good! Can you believe I have never had mole? i
don’t even know what it is but it looks good! a little corn starch added
when a sauce is to thin will thicken it right up ;)?
wow looks really good….Just found your videos and I can’t stop laughing,
really enjoy them ty?
My aunt used to make her mole sauce with some chilli powder, little bit of
flour, chicken broth, and peanut butter! Also mixed in corn flakes with the
chicken and of course the broth.?
Well I did, indeed, make these again this past weekend. And so good, too.
Even if my revised recipe has but a spirit of your originally-posted meal
— I’m still using the mole paste which is so essential.
I used fresh chicken thighs for the meat and brined them for a day in a
salt, garlic powder, oregano and hot sauce brine. I then cooked them
covered in the oven (which obviously didn’t yield that tasty, tasty crispy
After that I folded in a few cans of diced green chili, some minced cloves
of garlic and about a cup of habanero cheddar cheese.
I used these “authentic hand-made style” yellow corn tortillas. I am
skeptical if they were actually made with hands — but hey, they could’ve
been. Wrapped ‘em up, covered them in mole and into the oven covered.
Uncovered them after a few and threw more cheese on top and done!
Here are some pics — http://imgur.com/a/ShzgO — another successful
cooking endeavor and cooking the fresh chicken was really not that much
Another awesome video, and I love your creme fresca idea.?
You are killing me John! I’ve had mole before but have never made it! I
MUST do it now, I could literally taste these through the internet!
FANTASTIC recipe my friend!?
Great job John…This Gringo loves Mexican…Not much besides regular
restaurants around here and 2 Italian restaurants…I have to go 55 miles
to hit a Chinese or Mexican restaurant and when were going through there we
always stop and eat at one of the two…Looked like a great meal
buddy…Yum Yum…Take care, Gonzo…?
I must be one of the slower boys, I didn’t see this right away. It sure do
look good though.?
John, another great, taste-tempting video; thumbs up. Enchiladas are one
of our favorite Mexican dishes and you did a great job with the sauces. I
said “whoops!” when I saw you put the uncovered dish in the oven, but no
big deal. Nice thing about enchiladas is that you can use whatever kind of
chicken you prefer whether it is canned or cooked fresh. So, what’s the
explanation of the Italian-Mexican connection? 🙂 Keep the kitchen vids
coming….your friends, Don & Brenda?
your vids always make me chuckle. looks like a good recipe, i like chicken
from a can, makes quick chicken salad, not as good as bbq chicken shedded
up but still good and alot faster.?
When I was a kid I suspected that moles were used to make the “Mole” sauce,
because if it said “chicken” or “tuna” on a can or jar, there always was
(and had to be) chicken or tuna in it, and what would a kid expect from a
jar labeled “Mole”??
A culinary delight for certain John.!! There’s nothing wrong with canned
chicken, i love it for sandwiches, i’ve never heard of mole sauce before,
is it very spicy? because my ” lifestyle ” suggests that i go easy on the
spices. Great recipe my friend..!!?
evidence of a real cook here, to know when it is wrong and how to fix it, u
demonstrate it here a couple of times guy, well done, this finished product
looked mighty good to me, now lets see how good version 2 turns out, im
sure it will rock the house, thank u juanelo, looked like a damn tasty meal
to me, well done guy, well done?
Lovely intro, you did a great job with the graphics! No worries on the
jarred mole, we are right there with you on the logic. It tastes great and
no need for 2 days prep! Also good deal on the canned chicken too, nothing
wrong with that, so don’t fret 🙂 Chicken in a can is great for uses just
like you did! Wonderful looking enchiladas….really. Wow with that crema
on top made me drool! You did that recipe justice, mi tocayo, gracias por
compartirla! Super tasty recipe, and so easy to prepare as well, thank you.?
Another superb dish, thanks for sharing, :)?
HAHAHAHA, I can’t stop laughing!, I love your videos. Actually the dish you
prepared is called “enchiladas con mole”, they are sooo good! I remember
when my mom made those ones. My mom prepared the mole with some more
peanuts. I don’t know if you used “sweet mole” or “hot mole”, well I like
the last one hehe. I just tried once this recipe with ricotta cheese (you
might know it) and GOD, it was crazy, really tasty!!
Thank you for your (very) funny video. :D?
Looks great to me Juanelo!?
I have never cooked with a whole mole. I only use the molasses. Ha!!
Seriously tho, it looked really good!! ?
great video! it’s ironic, i’m having enchiladas tonight for dinner, but
they don’t look quite as good as yours do :)?
next time try some peanut butter in the mole ,awesome video?
I have to try this recipe. Outstanding ?
Good job, Juanelo! Don’t worry about canned chicken. Easy is good. I’ve
never heard of mole and had to look it up. Looks like they turned out good!?
Those suckers look great. Need to get some of those wraps and try this one
I love Mexican food.?
It looks good John. Canned chicken has plenty of flavor. I like it. Thanks
for the finely made video guy. Keep’em coming John. Aieee! ?
