Enchiladas are a staple of Mexican, Southwestern and New Mexico cuisine and are served rolled, flat, fried, baked, and filled or covered with just about every ingredient known to man, Enchiladas are now found in variations which are hardly recognizable as enchiladas as all! That is why it is such a pleasure to find a version that harkens to the original roots and yet offers a new taste sensation. This recipe's author, Cathy Medina, recommends serving the enchiladas with black beans, Spanish rice, and a guacamole and chips side dish for a cool contrast.
