So I bought his cook book (oh btw, I bumped into him in my gym downtown, twice) and I watch the PBS show, "Mexico One Plate at a Time". It's not the same, I know, but it will do.
So the other day I watched an episode on enchiladas, and since I make enchiladas regularly, this one really caught my attention.
I went to his website and wouldn't you know it, it's chock-full of recipes. I searched and found the particular one, called Enchiladas Especiales Tecuba Style and after getting a few essentials, got to it.
I have to say this is one of my favorite enchiladas to date. The spinach and poblanos chiles give it a earthy smokey flavor that I haven't had in the other enchiladas. It's super easy to make the suace is the most work but after you make that the rest is 1.2.3.
The only thing that I will change next time I make this dish is if the poblanos don't have much heat, add some jalepenos along with the poblanos.
I thought about blending this in my Cuisinart, but there is so much sauce that comes out of this that I'm glad I stayed with the blender, plus it was easier to pour from.
You mix a portion of the sauce with your chicken so you have the flavor throughout, not just on top and bottom of the enchiladas.
These enchiladas, paired with some sour cream and beer with lime were a divine dinner, and I had plenty of leftovers that we had put in the freezer for the following week.
Definitely a recipe that I will come back to time and again. Click here for link
