I used to make these all the time when I was younger but it’s been quite a while since we last had them. I have recently taken to buying the huge pack of tortilla wraps that they sell at Costco and I thought it was about high time I started making enchiladas again. They remind me of Mexican cannelloni using the tortillas instead of pasta. If you’re a big fan of Mexican food like I am, then give them a try. It’s a very easy dinner to make.
2 Chicken breasts
2 peppers (any color is fine)
4 cloves of garlic
1 egg plant (optional)
2 tablespoons of buritto, taco or fajita seasoning (They sell this in home-plus, Emart, Lotte mart or the foreign food marts in Itaewon).
150g of cheese
8 tablespoons of salsa
A glug of olive oil for frying
Fry your onions and garlic in a little olive oil then add the chicken Fry until it has started to color then add in the spices. Fry for a few minutes then add the mixed peppers, mushrooms, tomatoes and egg plant if using. Cook for a few minutes until the vegetables begin to soften and then add 2 tablespoons of salsa. Stir on the heat for a few minutes until the salsa has warmed through.
Take one of your tortillas then add a quarter of the filling and roll it up like a fajita or burrito and put it into your dish. Do this with the remaining three tortillas until they have all been wrapped, and are in the dish like so.
Top with the remaining salsa and cheese.
I usually top them with cheese sauce which makes for a richer enchilada but I was a little stuck for time so I just used salsa this time. Add the cheese then cook in the oven or under the grill for about 10-15 minutes until the cheese has melted and is golden brown.
