A friend of mine gave this recipe about 15 years ago, and I made it for a Hispanic group celebration, it was a hit.

A really good balance of flavors, with no weird ingredients. Nicely done. I made with chicken (we pre-grill it and shred it with a couple of forks) and used cilantro in place of parsley. It's really tasty to me if you use something like cast iron and throw the onions in first and caramelize them. I also like to broil a dish like this for the last few minutes to brown the surface and give it a little extra texture. Even if you only use this recipe for the red enchilada sauce, it's a winner!
