In celebration of Cinco de Mayo, we have a delicious enchilada recipe for you, packed with bold flavors! Enchiladas are a delicious traditional Mexican dish that can be eaten for breakfast, lunch, or dinner/
The main ingredients are tortillas and salsa, and they are normally filled with protein (you can choose meat, chicken, eggs, cheese or even beans for a vegetarian or vegan version).
To start, let’s make the salsa:
Boil green tomatoes in a pot and once cooked, drain the water but reserve a little.
Add the cooked tomatoes to a blender along with the onion, garlic, green chilli peppers, and salt to taste. Return the blended tomatoes to the pot you used together with the water you saved. Bring to the boil again, and season with salt if needed.
To make the tortillas:
Mix 100% rye flour with the oil and enough water to make a sticky dough. Let it sit for an hour.
The dough should be divided into two or three portions and formed into balls, then flattened (if you have a tortilla machine, amazing) but if not, using your hands will work fine. The thinner, the better. Heat a pan to get it really hot but then lower the heat as you put the tortillas in. Turn them regularly until cooked. Make sure they are cooked well inside but still flexible enough to fold.
Serve the tortillas with your choice of protein and vegetables, folded, and topped with hot salsa.
Add some lettuce and onion on top. Enjoy!
