Chicken Enchiladas with Guajillo Sauce

 

My wife Nancy, son Quinn and I got the chance to eat at Rick Bayless' Frontera Grill. It was an incredible foodie experience. His creativity and attention to detail was obvious in everything, from the drinks we had before dinner to dessert.

It was Quinn's first real gourmet experience and it made me incredibly happy to see that he had reached an age where he could appreciate what a special experience it was.

So, when a friend and co-worker left a bag of dried guajillo peppers and a copy of Bayless' Essential Simmered Guajillo Sauce on my desk, I knew it wouldn't be long before I made it. Now that I've done so, I know I will again. I adapted it slightly for our own tastes, but this is essentially Bayless' recipe. The enchiladas I put together to showcase the sauce were pretty basic, but the sauce was "softly spicy," Quinn said. The beautiful brick color reflected a bit of an earthy taste as well. As Quinn said, "You can taste Rick Bayless in this."

One of these enchiladas and sauce is 398 calories with 6 grams of fat and 10 of fiber.

Deal of the Day: Pick up one of Rick Bayless' cookbooks, you won't regret it.

About Me
I love food! But I let that love get the best of me and my weight ballooned to more than 300 pounds. My wife and I joined Weight Watchers and, over a three-year period, I lost 100 pounds. However, I refused to give up on the foods I love, from Alfredo to cheeseburgers. I set out to find ways to eat almost anything I wanted, but to prepare it in a healthy way. Now, I'm sharing my love of food and cooking with others interested in living a healthy lifestyle.
