    EdsGirlAngie's Note:

    I LOVE these things! These enchiladas are bathed in a sauce rich with chili powder, semisweet chocolate and a pinch of cinnamon. Please use corn tortillas and a "white" cheese for the recipe, as this sauce best complements them. Sliced avocado is a particularly tasty garnish for this dish.

    Units: US | Metric

    For the enchiladas

    • 4 corn tortillas
    • 2 cups white Mexican blend cheese, crumbled or cubed (Oaxacan is best, but Monterey Jack or Chihuahua would be okay)
    • 2 green onions, sliced

    For the Sauce


    1. 1
      For the sauce: Saute onion in oil until tender.
    2. 2
      Add garlic, oregano, cumin and cinnamon; saute together for a few minutes.
    3. 3
      Stir in flour and chili powder, coating onion mixture.
    4. 4
      Slowly whisk in vegetable (or chicken) stock; reduce until sauce thickens, whisking frequently (this will take about 30 minutes).
    5. 5
      Stir in semisweet chocolate until melted and smooth.
    6. 6
      Assemble enchiladas: Steam or soften tortillas in a lightly greased skillet (although I've been known to skip that step).
    7. 7
      Roll up 1/2 cup (or whatever fits your tortillas) of cheese in each corn tortilla.
    8. 8
      Sprinkle with green onions and pour sauce over.
    9. 9
      Cover baking dish and bake at 350 degrees F for about 20 minutes or until heated through.
    10. 10
      (Oaxacan cheese takes slightly longer to melt.).

      These were unique and tasty. I like that this recipe did not use adobo sauce so many chocolate enchildadas rely on this in the mole sauce.

      I'm not going to give this any stars because I have a feeling I just don't like mole sauce. I really thought I would, I have an adventurous palate, I always put cocoa in my chili... it seemed like the perfect recipe... but it just did not work for me.

      This is the best mole-style sauce I've found! I doubled the sauce recipe, and it was enough to cover 10 enchiladas (small corn tortillas with 1/4 cup cheese in each). I'm really glad that I doubled the recipe, because the leftovers are great, too. Thanks for sharing!
