stacked enchiladas w green chili

tim irvine May 10, 2008 09:38 AM

Anybody know of a place that makes a good New Mexico style enchilada, stacked w. a green chili sauce, probably blue corn torillas, and a fried egg on top?

    Chuy's does a decent version with ummmm I think blue corn tortillas. But they have good hatch green chile enchilada sauce and of course cook your egg whatever way you want it. Love stacked enchi's!!

      You know, I don't think Gorge's has blue tortillas. If that's a deciding factor, you may want to call before you go.

        ZTejas makes good green chile enchiladas.

      I'll give 'em a try, but there's green sauce and there's green sauce. Most places around here seem to favor green sauce where tomatillo predominates. It is good but it is a whole different thing from a Hatch chili green sauce. Try the green sauce at the market at Cameron and 290. I think it is jalapeno based but it is good...comes in a bottle that looks like a little pop bottle.

        The Texican and Jorge's on Hancock. Both come with red sauce but I'm sure green is available.

          Jorge's does them right (I'm from El Paso). Just ask for them the way you described above. The Hatch green sauce is quite good.

            Many thanks. If you get the right sauce and the fried egg, the rest sort of falls in place.

          Jardin Corona makes a stacked chicken/cheese enchilada with blue corn tortillas....one of the few dishes that I like there. I think that it is even called "Enchiladas Santa Fe." The one I got was stuffed with chicken. When I go back, I am going to ask them to cut the chicken in half, replaced with vegetables. I'm sure they'd plop a fried egg on top if you asked them.
