Enchiladas Verdes (Green Enchiladas)

Enchiladas Verdes (Green Enchiladas)

Yield: 4 servings

12 Corn tortillas
4 tablespoon Oil or lard
1 Clove garlic
1 tablespoon Flour
4 c Green chili sauce
1 Salt to taste
2 c Grated cheddar or jack cheese 1/4 c Minced onion

Fry tortillas in fat to soften.

Heat garlic in oil then discard garlic.

Blend flour into oil. Stir in green chili sauce and heat thoroughly. If
mixture is too thick, add water. Add salt to taste. Layer tortillas with
sauce, minced onion and cheese on oven-proof plates. Sprinkle cheese on top.

Use 3 tortillas for each serving. Place in oven to allow cheese to melt.

NOTE: For a real New Mexican touch place a poached or fried egg on top. The egg seems to help meld the flavors.
