Enchiladas are a typical Mexican dish which is widespread throughout Latin America.
The recipe dates to the first half of the 19th century.
These tortilla rolls are filled with tomato sauce, chili pepper, chicken, cheese and sour cream. Other recipes favor beef or pork or chili with red beans. What remains the same and unmistakable is its strong and decisive taste.
