These are wonderful creamy enchiladas. These are tex-mex enchiladas with a european flair due to the sherry and flavoring of the mushrooms. Serve with my cilantro rice, found in my recipes.
- 2 tablespoons olive oil
- 1 shallot, finely chopped
- 1 lb mushroom, thinly sliced
- 1 pinch thyme
- 1⁄4 cup dry sherry
- salt and pepper
- 1 cup strong chicken broth (add a tbsp. of "Better than Boullion" to store bought chicken broth if you don't want to boil a chic)
- 1 tablespoon cornstarch
- 1 tablespoon water
- 1 cup sour cream
- 1 small lemons, juice of or 1 small lime, juice of
- 6 ounces monterey jack cheese, grated (I use more)
- 8 corn tortillas
- 1⁄2 cup vegetable oil
- In a large saute pan, heat olive oil over medium heat. Add shallots and cook until they begin to soften. Add mushrooms, thyme and sherry. Cook until mushrooms are tender, 8 - 10 minutes. Season to taste with salt and pepper. Drain mushrooms and reserve.
- Place chicken broth in a medium saucepan. Combine cornstarch and water to make a smooth paste. Stir into chicken broth and bring to a boil over medium heat, stirring constantly. Remove from heat. Stir in lemon and lime juices and sour cream. Season to taste with salt and pepper. Keep warm but do not allow to return to a boil. (I put the saucepan in a larger one with simmering water).
- Preheat oven to 400°F Soften corn tortillas by gently frying in a small amount of hot oil: drain excess oil. Do not allow tortillas to crisp. (I steam them in the microwave with a little water for fewer calories).
- Divide mushroom mixture into 8 portions and place in center of softened tortillas. Roll each tortilla jellyroll-style and place seamside down, sides touching, in an ovenproof baking dish.
- Pour sour cream sauce over inchiladas and top with grated cheese. Bake 10 minutes. Makes 4 servings.
These are incredible! I love mushrooms and this hit the spot perfectly! Thank you for posting!
These are really good and make an impressive dish. You can even double the filling if you want to make them have more "pow." I am giving it only 4 stars because the sauce was too sour for my taste. A friend of mine from Mexico made this, but without the lemon & lime juice. I like it much better that way. Add a little more butter for the buttery goodness to come through.
