I love the combination of tomato and cocoa powder in enchilada sauce.

Chicken stock
crushed tomatoes or tomato paste
cocoa powder
cumin, chili powder or pepper blend of your choice.
pinch of oregano

Start with a roux and go for it....

I would use a Verde Sauce over a seafood enchilada. I like this recipe: Tomatillo Salsa Verde Recipe | Simply Recipes

It says to chill, but it is just as good as a warm sauce and you can adjust the heat by using more or less jalapenos.

+1

I prefer to roast all the vegetables, not just the tomatillos. It sweetens the onions and garlic and gives the entire dish a great smoky flavor.

Make a plain cheese enchilada add in some mild green chilies and when getting ready to fill my tortilla shells I'd add some sauteed shrimp or sea food of choice to it. roll, put it in the pan and maybe top with a garlic white sauce, then garnish with sliced avocado,chopped green onions or chives and creme frashe or sour cream. A red or green sauce might be nice on the enchiladas. Just a few ideas, hope they help.

Sauces to squeeze across the top

Is this similar to a mole/chocolate sauce? Tell me more. (Forgive my ignorance, Mexican is my least fave cuisine - hate spicy, jalapenos & barely tolerate mild green chilies), but trying to "warm" up to the cuisine.)

Leaning toward the white/bechamel topped w/ pico. Want to keep it fresh (maybe some lime juice & grilled shrimp), & clean flavors.

Will check out the seafood (lobster, scallops, shrimp, crab, salmon) when the temps come down. May try my hand at flan (for dessert), & make some strawberry margaritas to go with.

Looked at a copycat Hardrock Cafe shrimp taco recipe w/ green bell peppers, onions & sour cream, that might translate to enchiladas.

Thanks for the input/ideas.
