I finally have internet working at home again, so I can finally post about my enchiladas. They were phenomenal. I think New Mexican style are my new favorite. I made my own sauce which was much simpler than I thought it would be, but made far less than I thought it would. Nevertheless, they were divine.
First, the sauce...
You boil chiles. Pretty simple.
Then I roasted the chile seeds with whole cloves of garlic.
Combined them in the blender.
Voila! Enchilada sauce. At this point I refrigerated it to use the following day. When I reheated it I added cumin, oregano & some salt.
Then I just boiled some chicken & combined it with some of the sauce (chicken cooking isn't very photogenic). I dipped a corn tortilla in the enchilada sauce & placed it in the pan. Layered the saucy chicken with Monterey Jack cheese. Repeated 2 more times for a total of 3 layers.
After it baked in the oven at 350 degrees for about 20 minutes, it was ready to eat. And oh so delicious!
