"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!"
Hmm. None of these ingredients are on sale today.

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!
