Some of our regular customers at El Chubby’s Fresh Mexican Grill in Aurora love all the varieties of enchiladas. Chicken to cheese and more.
So, let’s talk about the many varieties of enchiladas.
It originated in Mexico as a traditional dish that has meat and other ingredients stuffed inside a corn tortilla. They are then rolled up, covered with a spicy chili pepper sauce and then baked. Enchilada means: to add chile pepper.
You can start with a tortilla that’s fried and then dipped in chile sauce, filled, rolled and baked. Some prefer to dip it first and then fry the tortilla. Both ways make it come out delicious.
Let’s talk meat. You can use beef, chicken, pork, or fish, and it can be shredded, ground, or cut into bite-sized chunks. Then the meat can be fried, grilled, sautéed, or baked. Don’t forget the other ingredients in an enchilada like vegetables, tomatoes, beans, potatoes, or cheeses.
Enchiladas are also served at wonderful restaurants with a choice of red or green sauce served over them. You might even find varieties of enchiladas covered with white cheese sauce or mole sauce. This dish is usually topped with cheese, sour cream, lettuce, olives, chopped onions, chili peppers, salsa or fresh cilantro.
