Though I love most Mexican food, I’ve never been a fan of enchiladas. In the past I’ve had them made with flour tortillas, full of ground beef and covered in a heavy red sauce. It just was never my thing.
But a few years ago my (best ever) mother-in-law Elayne made these chicken enchilada’s based on a Tyler Florence recipe. They were so good and I was instantly hooked! Hers are a lot of work (she roasts a chicken, shreds the meat, makes her own roasted tomatillo/habanero salsa, etc.) and I appreciate it every time she makes them for me because they are awesome (she’s Italian, not Mexican–go figure)!
