El Coyote Cafe Cheese Enchiladas Ranchera

El Coyote Cafe Cheese Enchiladas Ranchera created by Lavender Lynn

Fabulous recipe from the El Coyote Cafe, the oldest Mexican food restaurant in Los Angeles. I'm posting it exactly as I got it, but we usually make a great big 13 x 9 pan of the enchiladas (just keep rolling them up until your pan is full) and double the ranchera sauce. It looks like way too much sauce, but it cooks down in the oven and the flavor is fantastico!

    Sauce has a rich full flavor. We enjoyed these for our dinner. Made for Best of 2012.

    These were really good! Was a little concerned with the sauce being chunky and how DH would like it so before putting on the enchiladas I used a potato masher and broke up some of the tomatoes. Had a really good flavor and not spicy at all which I love! Made for 2012 Spring PAC.

    These are additive. I put the sauce together in a crockpot in the morning so it was ready to go over the enchiladas for that evening's dinner. Tasty, tasty. Thanks for sharing.
