"My mother-in-law hails from the small town of Alpoyeca, Guerrero in Mexico. She makes the most delicious Enchiladas Verdes, and I wanted to share this authentic Mexican recipe with everyone. A word of warning, I am not going to alter her recipe so people who can't handle spiciness might want to add more water or less jalapenos. Enjoy!" — red5

Thanks for an authentic recipe, and for not altering it; otherwise it would not be authentic; that's the problem with most "Mexican" recipes; well-meaning souls try to dumb it down for Americans, and lose the authentic flavor. Very good!!
This recipe was great... Everyone loved it! It wasn't very spicy so I will add more jalapenos next time for a little more kick!
