Enchiladas are the iconic Mexican comfort food—they’re warm, cheesy, gooey, and accented with sauces that range from complex mole to tomatillo-based salsa verde. We love enchiladas that come from all over the country, including the cheesy Tex-Mex enchiladas suizas at El Cantinero in NYC and the chicken enchiladas verdes at Taqueria Los Anaya in L.A.

There’s a great big world of fantastic enchiladas out there. So if you’re looking for some lunch inspiration, get up from your desk, find the closest plate of enchiladas to you, and go H.A.M.
