Chicken Enmoladas

Every Mexican food lover’s dream come true!

In Mexico there are several ways to make dishes with tortillas that date back from the Aztecs and most commonly knowns are enchiladas. “En” is a prefix and it means “in/covered of” and “chilada” refers to “chile” sauce.  There are many variations, the most common are entomatadas (in tomato sauce), enmoladas (in mole sauce) and enfrijoladas (in bean sauce).

Our recipe for Enmolada is thick and rich with the most incredible deep flavor. The ingredients are simple but taste so incredibly unique and oh so delicious! The tomatoes, green chilis, garlic, chipotle in adobo sauce, balance it so well!
