Enchiladas - Minneapolis/St. Paul Dish of the Month (Jan 2013)

The dish of the month for Minneapolis/St. Paul for Jan 2013 is enchiladas. Here's a link to the vote:

The goal is to collectively try as many versions of enchiladas as possible during the month of January! So let's start exploring and eating—report back with reviews and photos.

All types of enchiladas are fair game! Looking forward to seeing what people find.

  1. For those looking to venture out of their comfort zone "Simple Good & Tasty" website has an excellent series on local latin dining, often on the casual side of life which sometimes includes enchiladas.

    1. I love enchiladas that are literally drowned in the sauce so much so that the corn tortillas turn into mush. So my vote goes to Maya.

      1. I was flabbergasted at Pineda/Hi-Lake when they pulled out a blow torch(!) to melt the cheese. That said, the results yielded a surprisingly tasty enchilada. (Chicken verde with tomatillo salsa.)

        1. re: ChancesR

          had the roast pork w green sauce at the Plymouth/GV shop, same strip as Tea House. Excellent, close and cheap. Take out cheesecake very good. (Pineda)

        2. Masa may be pricey, but I think their enchiladas are the best I've ever had, in or out of the Twin Cities.

          1. I had the Mi Tierra combo at Boca Chica earlier this week. It comes with a chicken mole enchilada which I found to be quite tasty. I would definitely order the actual enchilada mole dinner in the future.

            (Will also add that the staff was very attentive, they are EXTREMELY accommodating to gluten-free diners, and both the enchilada and sope were good, but unfortunately the tamale was quite dry and lacking in flavor and I'll be sticking to La Loma for my tamale cravings.)
