We’re in the full swing of the holidays! Thanksgiving dinner is under our belt and Noche Buena and Christmas morning are in our sights. The tree is up, the lights are twinkling, the garland is strewn, and we’re headed back into the kitchen to cook up dish after dish of delicious classics. To keep us inspired, we’re putting a TLK twist on the classic song 12 Days of Christmas. You know the one with 12 drummers drumming, 11 pipers piping...all the way down to the partridge in the pear tree!
We’ve already covered 12 Tasty Tacos, shared our 11 Favorite Flans, made 10 types of tamales, and toasted with 9 Christmas Cocktails! Today, we’re digging into 8 Enchiladas! Gather some friends and grab a fork, it’s time to sing (and cook!) along!
Enchiladas aren't always savory, but they are always delicious and these holidays treats are no exception to that rule! This creative take on a festive apple pie mixes a cinnamon apple compote with a drizzle (or waterfall) of sweet and sticky dulce de leche.
Why make sandwiches when you can revamp your leftover holiday chicken into these Red Enchiladas? A quick, deep red sauce made from smoky dried guajillo chiles and garlic guarantees that not a single bite of these cheesy and healthy enchiladas will be spared!
The best way to keep kids from eating Santa's cookies instead of their vegetables is to sneak some greens in to the foods they already love. And what kid (or adult for that matter) doesn't love a tortilla dripping in sauce and cheese? Christy Vega's Spinach Enchiladas are a delicious way to get all those vitamins and minerals your pernil might not be giving you.
Classics are called classics for a reason: they are simply delicious! These Chicken Enchiladas with Tomatillo Salsa really prove it. Tomatillos, serrano chiles, bell peppers, garlic, and cilantro all come together in this traditional salsa verde to give your dinner that simmering-all-day, warm-you-from-the-inside taste you crave when it's cold outside and you're indoors with the ones you love.
This savory French-Latin fusion was made with the health-conscious and flavor-hungry in mind! By substituting thick flour tortillas with lighter crepes, these flavorful spinach enchiladas with parmesan cheese and fresh tomato sauce will satisfy our taste buds while still keeping blood sugar levels down so you and your family can have a carefree and delicious holiday.
Roberto Santibanez's Spinach and Mushroom Enchiladas will please the naughty and the nice! They are filled with iron-rich spinach and fresh mushrooms, but topped with a spicy tomato sauce flavored with smoky chipotle and jalapeno chiles and finished with salty queso fresco. No matter which list you land on, grab a spoon! These won't last long!
Staying healthy and eating your veggies during the holidays has never tasted this good! The corn tortillas are stuffed with Monterey Jack cheese, nutrient-dense cactus paddle or nopal, and topped off with a hot and creamy tomatillo sauce.
Sorry Dr. Seuss, but these Green Enchiladas make your green eggs and ham look like child's play. The delicious tomatillo salsa that gives these enchiladas their name is made with chiles, garlic, onion, and Christmas cheer, but get them quick before the Grinch steals them all!
