These were excellent! I tried to follow the recipe exactly, but in Canada its a bit harder to find salsa variations that aren't standard tomato-based Old El Paso (which isn't authentic!). Most grocery stores only carry that type of salsa and Mexican/Latin grocery stores are few and far in between. I was able to find a grocery store that carried Herdes brand salsa. I bought a 16 oz jar of green chili salsa, a small can of jalapenos and a small can of red salsa. I couldn't find jalapeno salsa anywhere. I mixed half a jar of the green salsa with the sour cream and the bunch of cilantro. I slowly added the red salsa and jalapeno's to taste because they were a lot hotter then what I'm used to. I have to say that sour cream mixture on its own is AMAZING! I'm definitely going to make it again, because it's a wonderful creamy salsa that would be great with pretty much anything, especially nachos. The sour cream really cools down the chili. Oh, and I tried baking my tortillas before stuffing them to prevent sogginess, but they ended up getting too hard and they were breaking. Once I baked them they turned out great. The only thing I would change is that for me the cheddar didn't seem to go the the sour cream sauce. Next time I would try monterey jack or try and hunt down some queso fresco. My boyfriend says it was one of the best dishes I've ever made and he would buy it in a restaurant!
