How to make it

  • Prepare the tortillas: Arrange paper towels new the stove. Pout the oil into a skillet or sauté pan at least 6-inches in diameter. Heat the oil until it ripples. With tongs, dip each tortilla into the hot oil. In a matter of seconds, the tortillas become limp. Remove it immediately and drain it on the paper towels. If you don’t act quicly enough, the tortilla will become crisp. Repeat the process with the rest of the tortillas.
  • Prepare the green Chile Sauce: Brown the ground beef over medium heat in a high-sided non-reactive pan until all of the pink color is gone. While continuing to heat the skillet, pur in the water and add the chilie, tomatoes, onion, garlic, salt and pepper, and Worchershire sauce. Bring to a boil, then lower the heat and simmer for 10 to 15 minutes. Add the cornstarch, and cook for 5-10 minutes longer. The sauce should be thickened, but quite pourable, with no taste of raw cornstarch. Serve warm with burritos, enchiladas or other dishes. Green sauce keeps in the frig for 3-4 days and can be frozen. When reheating, add a little water if needed.
  • Prepare the enchiladas: Warm chile sauce and the chicken. To layer the ingredients, top the first tortilla with 1/8th of the chicken and 1/2 teaspoon onion, 1/3 cup of chili sauce and some of the cheese.
  • Repeat for the second layer. Top the stack with the third tortilla, the add more chile sauce and sprinkle cheese over the top of all. Repeat the steps with the other tortillas. (You'll have 4 enchiladas made up of 3 tortillas each).
  • Run the enchilada under a broiler until the cheese melts. Serve piping hot. Serve with pinto beans as a side dish.
