Yeah…here’s another Mexican dish from me…..my 3rd one! I have learned Mexican Chicken Fajita, Mexican Chicken Quesadilla and this one is Mexican Chicken Enchilada which is again very delicious. I have also learned to make tortillas at home. Nothing is as satisfying as homemade meals, especially one that you have no clue of and yet turned out successful and very delicious. Look at that picture above….gorgeous and delicious. I actually poured a lot of sauce over it…..just so good! My children like it very much and that makes it more fun cooking.
Again it was Drick from Drick’s Rambling Cafe who showed how to make this beautiful sauce. He has been having lots of patience trying to teach me some of the Mexican ingredients and telling me where to find them. I really appreciate all his help.
Drick’s blog is full of delicious recipes, most of which are simple and easy to cook. His cooking and dishes are very different from mine so it’s very refreshing for me when I visit his blog. Do drop by and say ‘Hi’ to him in the comment box. You will make his day. He has been very busy working on his house. We can cheer him up!
This sauce is from his blog post, 5 Mexican Sauces, which he dedicated specially to me to encourage me on in my Mexican cooking adventure. I want to try all the 5 sauces. One of them is the Mexican Seasoning Mix which I used here, with a little variation to it due to ingredients availability. I’m sure saving a lot of money making it myself…hehe.
Ingredients (Western Sauce)
1 piece of chicken stock
1 & 1/2t groud cumin
1/2t granulated garlic
2t Mexican seasoning
1T chili powder (optional)
1C butter milk
I did a short cut to Drick’s recipe. I put everything into a pot to boil, stirring every now until the sauce thickens. I also changed the recipe a little bit. I omit the salt and use a piece of chicken stock and water to make up for the 3 cups chicken stock. I also did not add chili powder as I added hot salsa when making the chicken fajita. The whole combination of taste was really delicious.
The Mexican seasoning was the same one that I used which was homemade. Click Mexican Mix To Make Chicken Quesadilla to see the recipe.
To make Mexican Chicken Enchilada
grated cheddar cheese
Make a good chicken filling to make the fajita. It was actually very delicious as it is. I was busy and just bought the organic tortillas from the supermarket. But homemade tortillas taste better.
Arrange the chicken fajitas in a pyrex dish and pour the sauce over it. Sprinkle grated cheddar cheese over it. Then put to bake at 200 degrees Celsius until the cheese melts and turns golden. You can use mozzarella cheese if you like. I will try that next time.
Remove from oven, cool down a while before diving into it as it’s piping hot and may burn your mouth.
Do you make your own enchilada? What sauce, filling and topping do you use? Please share, add and comment in the comment box below.
