Enchiladas

I would like to make some enchiladas one day this week. I've never made them.I will most certainly have leftovers because it's just my
DH and myself.
Do the leftovers refrigerate well? I would hate to have some soggy "stuff" the next dday.

Yes, they refrigerate well, and like so many things, they are often better the day after they are cooked. I often also freeze the leftovers for another meal.

Yep, what Kay said.

And to add, while not as "authentic" as corn tortilla enchiladas, flour tortillas tend to hold up a little better. If I'm pretty sure I'll be reheating them over the next few days, I'll use flour. Putting them between two damp paper towels and heating them up in the microwave for a few seconds, will make them pliable enough to roll up with your filling.

If you use corn tortillas, they need to be quickly (like just a few seconds) fried in a little hot oil (or your heated enchilada sauce) to become pliable enough to roll.

Happy enchilada-ing! I love them - they're a staple in my house.

Dipping the corn tortillas in warmed enchilada sauce also makes them pliable and easy to roll.

Ohhh goodie, let's talk more about one of my favorite dishes.

I prefer corn tortillas for beef or pork filling, but flour for chicken or seafood. I don't like full strength classic enchilada sauce and often use cheese soup, or golden mushroom soup mixed with it.

Sometimes with the cheese topping I add chopped hard boiled egg and sliced olives, like my mother did.
Off to the store for the fixins. Yummm

I love to top mine with green onions, olives, cilantro and sour cream.

I'm having a major enchilada craving now, but it will have to wait until later in the week.

Ohmygosh I would have forgotten to get the mandatory beloved cilantro, (for me at least). Glad I checked here again before my trip to the store.

I couldn't agree more. I actually prefer them either after they have cooled down a bit, or the next day.

I do my chicken enchiladas in green sauce. Karen prefers flour and I prefer corn tortillas. Anyone like chicken chilaquiles?
