    They look delicious. I was born and raised in El Paso and I’ve never seen
    enchiladas made with chile powder..interesting technique. I’m sort of an
    old school cook. I soak my chile pods over night in cold
    water…blend..strain..make a roux and cook my sauce with salt and garlic
    (fresh or powder. Never had any issues with bitter sauce). Definitely like
    them stacked with cheese and onion y un huevo. I think my gringo friends
    would like this recipe since it’s somewhat easier for them. I like your
    music! :)?

      to try this recipe! Thank you.?

            Our chilli is to fresh and local to be using powder. I hope you’re trying
            to give a recipe to others that don’t have resources.

                The BEST Red Chili Enchiladas I ever had(plus tons of other native new
                mexican’ts) was from a 74 year old woman born in Mexico, but resided in New
                Mexico for the past 30 years. OMG, she would NEVER use dehydrated / dried
                junk plastic dispenser. She ALWAYS told me: “REAL COOKS COOK WITH REAL
                INGREDIENTS AND THAT’S WHAT WILL ALWAYS MAKE THE REAL DIFFERENCE”. I NEVER
                see true Italians, Spaniards or Mexicans cooking with processed junk, but
                here in New Mexico it is COMMON place little man.

                                1: I use disp. alum foil pie pans. 2: I don’t put the tortilla in the
                                sauce. I ladle the sauce over it when it’s in the pan. 3: I put chopped
                                onion, finely shredded lettuce, & diced tomatoes between the layers. I use
                                the same cheese as you. Add another ladle of sauce & another tortilla 4:
                                Make stack three layers high. Top layer is chile, chopped onion & cheese.
                                Put the pan in 350 degree oven for 15-20 min. The flavors come together in
                                the oven! Each person gets a pie pan/enchilada. Enjoy!

                                        this for sure. I like how you don’t use flour. exellent!

                                              That is exactly how my Grandma & Mom made enchiladas when I was growing up.
                                              I never knew any other way. So when I first made them for my fiance many,
                                              many years ago… he was like “um, I’ve never had flat enchiladas” LOL! His
                                              Nana would roll them when she made them. Forward to today & he loves them
                                              but it was funny to find out not everyone prepares them like this. Also,
                                              you make your enchilada sauce different than I do… I like your Mom’s
                                              recipe I’m definitely going to try it! : ))

                                                Good luck. Hope they turn out great.
