The Daring Cooks May 2010 - Stacked Enchiladas

Hi kids!

First the good stuff.. this month's Daring Cooks' challenge!

Our hosts this month, Barbara of Barbara Bakes and Bunnee of Anna+Food have chosen a delicious Stacked Green Chile & Grilled Chicken Enchilada recipe in celebration of Cinco de Mayo! The recipe, featuring a homemade enchilada sauce was found on and written by Robb Walsh.

The only well lit picture taken by my friend Sue :)

These were delicious.. and I had no doubt even before I made them. You could put just about any kind of Mexican/Latin food in front of me and I know it'll be delish. This recipe was straight forward and easy. My only problem was finding tomatillos. After a 1/2 a day hunt, I found 3 of them. Yes. 3. So the Green Chile Enchilada sauce happened, but I had to cut down the recipe quite a bit to accommodate my small amount of the main ingredient. That's okay though, it turned out delicious and I had enough for 2 of the 6 stacked enchiladas I made.

The other 4 got a red sauce, which was the exact same recipe as the Green Chile Enchilada sauce, except I used 2 cans of fire roasted diced tomatoes in lieu of the tomatillos. It also turned out to be mighty tasty.

First batch of Poblanos roasting over an open gas fire :D

I made 6 enchiladas as Hubbs and I were entertaining 4 of our most gorgeous and closest friends for a birthday celebration. From the response I received everyone absolutely loved the dish, and asked for the recipe.

Thank you so much, Barbara & Bunnee! What a great, simple, easy to put together recipe that is very worthy of serving to guests!

You could put anything Mexican in front of me lately and I would inhale it.

I coulda' sworn I had commented on this, Lis! I honestly think I'm losing my blogging mind lately lol Regardless..I loved the enchilada challenge too..and am still dousing everything I eat with red mole. Yours looks amazing. LOVE the fire roasted tomatoes..makes the best everything that contains tomatoes and isn't served raw - especially salsa! I'm coming to Ohio with my wedding dress on! Love you dahling! xoxoxo

BTW, where's your croquembouche??? I swear..I could eat cream puffs all day long..with the vanilla creme patisserie that is. Thank god I coated mine in so much sugar it was almost impossible to do so LOL
