New Mexico-Style Red Chile Enchiladas

New Mexico-Style Red Chile Enchiladas created by PalatablePastime

Most New Mexicans don't roll their enchiladas. This is certainly a less time consuming way of making them with the same great results. Sometimes they even add a fried egg on top of each serving. You may add additional meat, cheese or vegetables if you desire. Just remember to bake as soon as assembled because they get soggy if they sit too long. Prep time does not include making the chile sauce.

    Please drop New Mexico from your tittle. I live in New Mexico. Our chili isn't made from sriracha sauce. It's actually red chili from red chili pods. We take pride in our chili and miss representing it very badly. Thank you

    Not authentic New Mexican. The sauce is awful.

    The "red chile sauce" is NOT true "New Mexican". True New Mexican red chile does NOT contain tomatoes, vinegar, sugar, and certainly not siracha. It's red chile from actual red chile pods, onion, garlic, salt, pepper, and maybe a dash of secret herbs and spices, as handed down from grandma. "New Mexico" need to be dropped from the title of this recipe.

    These were very good! I used Monterrey Jack cheese. I did find the amount of onion and sauce to be excessive. I used only half the sauce and it was enough. Next time I will cut way back on the onion.
