How to make it

  • Salsa Preparation:
  • using a thick sauce pan, heat the oil and add the onion, bell pepper and celery. saute until soft and the onions are brown (usually 2-3 minutes)
  • add the remaining ingredients and simmer on low heat for 20 minutes. only use 2 cups of broth. reserve 1/2 cup for later.
  • let cool slightly then blend well in a food processor.
  • set sauce aside for later. extra sauce keeps for 2 weeks in the fridge.
  • Fajita Preparation:
  • fire up your charcoal grill with plenty of coals.
  • grill the Fajitas until medium to med-rare, do not overcook.
  • remove from grill and let sit for atleast 10 minutes.
  • while you are waiting for the Fajita meat, place the Onion and Bell Pepper on the grill until well browned and soft, turning once.
  • cut the Fajitas, onion and bell pepper into long thin slices.
  • combine the Fajita, onion, bell pepper and 2 cups of cheese in a large bowl and mix by hand. this is your tortilla filling.
  • Make the Enchiladas:
  • in a small, shallow skillet, heat the reserved chicken broth to just less than a boil.
  • run the corn tortillas through the broth for 2sec on each side. then briefly coat each side of the tortilla with the Ranchero Sauce. stack 'em up.
  • in a large casserole dish, take each torilla and add approx 2 Tbs of filling before rolling up. place in dish side-by-side.
  • extra filling can be sprinkled on top or used to make additional enchiladas.
  • pour the Ranchero Salsa over the enchiladas.
  • sprinkle the remaining 1 cup of cheese over the top as well.
  • bake at 350deg for 30min until bubbly hot.
  • these freeze very well prior to cooking if you find that there are too many enchiladas... if thats possible!
