Chicken Enchiladas -- What's your favorite recipe?

I'm looking for a really great chicken enchilada recipe.

  1. Rick Bayless is a great source for solid mexican recipes.

    1. I'm so glad you asked this question, walker. We love Mexican and other Latin foods in my house, and I'm eager to hear what people suggest.

      In the meantime, unfortunately I can't get my computer to copy & paste the link I wanted to share with you. But go to and type "chicken enchiladas" in the search window. Perhaps you'll agree with me that there seem to be some really interesting variations offered.

        1. I'm watching this thread too. I would like just a simple recipe that a mexican-american mom or grandma who can cook really well has made for years.

          1. This one from epicurious is an easy one to make if you don't have the time to make your own sauce:
            As one of the reviews suggest, I omit the oregano & basil, and add in some chopped jalapeno peppers, coriander, and cumin; also a bit of chili powder to increase the spice level. I use Las Palmas sauce and, after filling the enchiladas, add any of the remaining vegetable mixture to the sauce.
