How to make it
- 1/2 cup vegetable oil (for sautéing)
- 12 corn tortillas
- 12 ounces Monterey Jack cheese, grated
- 4 ounces queso fresco, grated (about 1 cup), for garnish
- 1/2 cup finely chopped onion
- 1/2 cup coarsely chopped cilantro
- 1 cup crema fresca or sour cream
- Preheat oven to 300 degrees. Heat oil in a sauté pan over medium-high heat. Dip tortillas in chile sauce, then cook briefly in the hot oil (no more than 5 seconds on each side or they will disintegrate). Place each tortilla on a flat surface, sprinkle Monterey Jack cheese on it (slightly off center), roll up snugly, and put on an ungreased baking sheet with the seam side down. Heat in oven until cheese melts, 5 to 7 minutes.
- Garnish enchiladas with queso fresco, onion, cilantro, and a dollop of crema fresca. Makes a dozen enchiladas.
