An enchilada is a classic Mexican dish used as a hearty dinner or lunch. Described as a rolled maize tortilla stuffed with meat or vegetables and covered with tomato or chilli sauce, they come in a number of varieties. These enchiladas use tender strips of chicken, beautifully wrapped in soft golden corn tortillas. It is topped with a rich, tangy tomato sauce, oozing in melted cheese. A delicious, messy and hearty meal, it is best shared with family & close friends.
