ISO your favorite mexican recipe

I am going to a friends bridal shower next month and with the invitation I received a recipe card in which we are suppose to put our favorite recipe onto. I know that the couples favorite food is mexican and my recipes are limited in this area. I would love to hear your favorite recipes (something that you like to cook that gets great reviews), keeping in mind she is not a very experienced cook, but has done really well with some of then recipes I've given her in the past.

Could say that I fortunately grew up with all the Mexican food. My family and friends are always raving about my enchiladas. They are delicious. I'd be glad to share the recipe with you. And it's a meal that incorporates all food groups and can be made and taken to the party in one baking dish.

This recipe is really simple and easy. It is one of my favorites.

Chile Verde

10 green tomatillos
2 tablespoons diced jalapenos
1 small chopped onion
3 tablespoons minced garlic
Salt and pepper
2 lbs. lean pork
3 tablespoons oil


Place all ingredients except pork in a food processor and puree. In a small pot, brown cubed pork with oil. Make sure to brown all sides evenly. Remove all excess oil from meat. Stir in pureed ingredients and let simmer for 20 to 25 minutes. Serve with tortillas and cheese.
