Enchiladas hold a strong appeal among many people and when they’re prepared just right, their taste is truly spectacular. An error in the preparation process, however, may result in an enchilada that is closer to soggy than tasty. A few simple tips can go a long way in making sure your enchiladas are always delectable.
Enchiladas have a strong reliance on green, red, and brown sauces. Regardless of whether you opt for peppers, tomatillos, or tomatoes as the enchilada base, make sure that there is strong consistency.
In regards to the tortillas, you want to fry them in hot oil prior to filling them with whatever ingredients you intend to use and rolling them up. The frying creates a barrier of sorts so that the tortillas don’t immediately soak up the ingredients and become soggy. Nixtamal corn tortillas are your best bet here.
Speaking of the filling, there are few rules when it comes to what to use. What you want to focus on is balance and texture. If you chose meats, consider slow cooking, grounding, or shredding them. For vegetables, make sure they are pre-cooked.
