The Finest Tacky Bitter Cream Enchiladas
Necessary: rooster and tortillas matter. For the rooster, I all the time use store-bought rotisserie rooster. It has probably the most taste and the very best texture. The very best half is that you simply don’t waste 100 years grilling and baking your rooster. And don’t even boil it until you need the rooster to style like white, chewy rubber, mmmm okay?
So far as the tortillas go, I attempt to get as near do-it-yourself as attainable. After I’m feeling additional, I take advantage of the frozen recent tortillas from Costco. You cook dinner them on the griddle till they’re evenly golden brown and your entire home will odor amaaaaazing. The very best half about making your personal: get pleasure from them heat with a bit butter and jam, rolled up, they usually’re just about the very best factor ever. (We name them “jam issues” in our household and it’s a convention from whenever you’re about two till ceaselessly.)
Should you don’t have do-it-yourself, don’t fear!! Simply make certain to get those with a paper label on the within (this implies they’re legit) like Alejandro’s model. Additionally, don’t be afraid to really feel the tortillas earlier than you place them in your cart. Be sure that they’re delicate and good! You need to use corn tortillas, however I discover that the flour ones give it a greater texture.
(This pic was from a batch I made a few years in the past! They received a bit toasty beneath the broiler.)
Right here’s the recipe! I hope you adore it.
