How to make it
- Place all sauce ingredients in a blender and puree.
- Mix cheeses together.
- Pour 1/3 of red chile sauce on the bottom of an oven-safe dish. Arrange 1/3 of the eggplant slices over sauce. Cover with 1/3 of the sautéed onion, then 1/3 of cheese mixture. Continue the layers two more times, ending with a cheese layer on top.
- Bake in an oven at 350°F until cheeses are melted and top is slightly brown, about 15 to 18 minutes.
- Rather than layering this dish, you can make individual, rolled enchiladas. Place 3 tbsp of cheese mixture in middle of eggplant, place all rolled eggplant in dish, cover with red chile sauce and bake.
