    Celiac.com 11/22/2016 - These aren't enchiladas like you might be used to. These are typical of the cuisine of the cuisine of the state of San Luis Potosí, in central Mexico. They are more like quesadilas. Make them with fresh, home made tortillas if you can. Yum!

    Ingredients:

    • 1 dozen corn tortillas (or use fresh masa and make from scratch)
    • ¼ cup vegetable oil
    • 5 ounces of saltierra potosino cheese, or Mexican-style cheese like Manchego
    • 4 chiles chinos, or guajillo chiles
    • salsa verde, as desired
    • salt

    Directions:
    Cook the red chiles, grind and strain them, taking care not to add too much water. The sauce should be a bit thick.

    The filling is prepared with grated cheese, cooked tomato, if desired, and a splash of salsa verde.

    Warm the small tortillas lightly in a frying pan, then add a little of the filling, and double them over like quesadillas, and cook them in the cast iron frying pan, taking care to turn them only once. If using fresh masa, form small tortillas, add a little of the filling, double them like quesadillas, and cook them on the comal or frying pan.

    Serve warm, with guacamole, refried beans, and chiles in vinegar. Top with red chile sauce as desired.

    This recipe comes to us from Meredith Misner.
    1 package corn tortillas
    1 can refried beans
    ¼ onion diced
    ½ green pepper diced
    ½ red pepper diced
    ½ cup cheddar cheese grated
    Salsa - I dont know how much -- just for the top
    In large bowl, mix beans and veggies and a little bit of the cheese. Grease 9X13 pan. With a tortilla in hand, place a large spoonful of filling in tortilla and roll-up. Stick a little of the bean mix on the edge of the tortilla to glue it in place, and lay seam-side down in pan. Do this until tortillas or filling runs out. Pour a little salsa over all enchiladas, spreading thin, just so the cor...
