Serious Eats Nick Kindelsperger 11 comments

Meet the ultimate, upgraded Tex-Mex Enchiladas: Tortillas, rolled up around a cheddar-based filling and completely enveloped by a rich red chili sauce, then topped with even more melted cheese. The sauce is rustic and aromatic, with a haunting cumin aroma and a heat from the chilies that doesn't attack so much as slowly tickle the back of your tongue.

Dinner Tonight: Sautéed Steak a la Mexicana

Serious Eats Nick Kindelsperger Post a comment

Yes, this does look suspiciously like fajitas. In fact, Simply Mexican author Lourdes Castro writes that it's probably "where the fajita probably got its start." Which is just a way of saying, if you like the Tex-Mex classic, then you'll appreciate what's going on here: caramelized beef, charred onions and chiles, and nothing else to get in the way. But there are differences, and they are important. More
