Hello everyone, But these enchiladas were made with corn tortillas. not flour. They were not mixed in the sauce. I do not care for campbell's creamed soups. I prefer to make mine instead. I find these soups contain way to many additives.
BreezyCooking is close-YEAH. The sauce is a basic white , but there is a secret ingrediant, that gives it a pinkish color, and it is not any kind of soup.
I know we'll find the recipe. I have faith in DC chef's
YAKUTA- I wonder if they used an etoffee sauce for the enchiladas. Was there cheddar cheese on the inside?

Chi-Chi's used to be one of my favorite restaurants. I always got the same thing: Seafood Chimichanga. Chi-Chi's doesn't exist anymore.

Rick Bayless and Zarela Martinez are my 'go-to' folks when it comes to Mexican. Take a look at this recipe from Rick (although it's a chicken recipe, look at the sauce and see if that's what you want):

My only other suggestion would be to ask at one of the places you've had this dish, and just ask your server. I did that, after trying forever to get the creamy melted white cheese sauce so many of the Mexican restaurants use on most everything. I'd tried Monteray Jack, all of the 'queso' cheeses I could get my hands on and nothing was the texture like the restaurants had. So ---asked our server, who was the restaurant manager, and he rather sheepishly told me, 'it's just white American cheese, melted with a little milk and chopped jalepenos'!!!

Ahhh "Chi-Chi's" - what a blast from the past. Both "Chi-Chi's" & "El Torito's" were the 1st Mexican restaurant chains to hit the scene when Mexican food suddenly became "the thing".

The two things about "Chi-Chi's" that always made us laugh were 1) that every single meal looked EXACTLY like it was pictured on the laminated menu. EXACTLY. Not a grain of rice, or olive, or parsley garnish in the wrong place. 2) That any dish that would normally or authentically served with sour cream was pointedly served with what "Chi-Chi's" called "Sour Topping" (imitation sour cream). It just sounded so unappetizing somehow.

Sour Cream on Mexican Food started as a California thing I do like it on some Mexican dishes but not on Enchiladas.

To tell you the truth, I only like it on enchilada dishes that have a green sauce, although I do occasionally enjoy a dollop on top of chili.

Call me a sinner, japes, but I like a glob of sour cream on all Mexican entrees. (Maybe it's because I was born in Cali.)

Wouldn't put it on flan or sopaipillas (sp?), though.
