"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!
Well i hate to say it but I had to use a Enchilada verde sauce from a can cause it is way, way faster. I fried the corn tortillas and then dipped them in the verde sauce then followed the recipe the rest of the way. Our 2yr old loved them so much he asked for a second enchilada. I served this with a side of black beans and lime wedge. Pretty delicious. Thanks for sharing the recipe, these recipes help me to improvise. Took me just 35 minutes to make the whole meal.
I went to a mexican market last night to make this on Saturday, because you just can't beat fresh cheese, and corn tortillas just created, pressed, and still warm in the bag when you pick them up... I also have to give you total props for not modifying the recipe, if the recipe is too spicy, mooooove along! lol
