The Avila Special at Avila's ($10.95)
Taking several staples of Tex-Mex and adding them all to one dish, the Avila's Special consists of one chicken enchilada topped with tomatillo sauce, one chicken enchilada topped with sour cream sauce, and one cheese enchilada with ranchero sauce. It's like a sampler platter of enchilada staples, and if you happen to mix the sauces, odds are you'll consider it a happy mistake—an amalgam of all of them happens to make a great topping for those leftover chips.
