Enchiladas Rojas... from scratch!
Enchiladas Rojas is an exquisite specialty that originates from Mexico and has over 20 different versions to choose from. The practice of rolling tortillas around other foods goes back to the Mayan times near the Valley of Mexico where they would roll small fish with their tortilla. Nowadays, the modern Enchilada is made with your choice of filling like cheese, vegetables, meats, beans, and/or any combo you like the most then covered in a chili tomato sauce. Yummm! Today, we want to talk about this delicious Mexican dish and put your cooking skills to test. Don’t worry, you're not alone in the process! We got you covered.
