Enchiladas Verdes or Rojas

Cara Eisenpress: This is a very traditional dish, and depending on the Mexican state you are from, you’ll make a specific kind enchilads. For example, there are enchiladas potosinas from the state of San Luis Potosi made with a rich red sauce, requeson (crumbled cream cheese), chopped onions and corn tortillas. At Mexico DF you can enjoy enchiladas suizas made like a lasagna style, and baked inside the oven. In Puebla enchiladas Poblanas with a sauce made with poblano chiles, roasted corn and cream. I chose a recipe from TheKichn since they follow traditional techniques such as the roasting of the chiles, using suero de sal, asadero cheese and serving in a clay dish.
