Authentic Enchiladas Verdes
To start with, let me say that I am Mexican, living in mexico and probably my english will not be very good, so I will try my best to make this review. If you come to Mexico, this is what you will get if you order enchiladas in a restaurant. This is the REAL and authentic enchilada and we always make fun of the "mexican" food in the US.
Let me give you some advice on how to ensure this doesnt go wrong. When using tomatillos buy the smallest ones, because the bigger are bitter. The peppers you cand reduce or increase the amount depending on how hot you like it, it really depends on your taste. When you fry the tortilla, it doesnt mean deep-fry... you just coat it in really hot oil. The tortilla still has to be flexible enough to manage and after you fill the tortilla with the chicken, put the salsa on top. Instead of salt use chicken broth powder (sorry if thats not the name, but I hope you know what I mean). The enchiladas are served with sour cream, queso fresco and onion. Now, I have never seen queso fresco (mexican cheese) in the US... but again, I dont live there. I guess now in the mexican stores they might sell it but whatever cheese you have is fine i guess. And I guess you can add the cilantro for extra flavor.
Im glad that people know how to make REAL enchiladas in the US
