Enfrijoladas de Pollo

Similar to enchiladas, enfrijoladas start with tortillas filled with chicken or any meant of you liking. However, instead of a red or green sauce, they are dipped in a thick black or red bean sauce. Enfrijoladas is one of the authentic Mexican dish that is often made during Day of the Dead celebrations. They are like a sister of enchiladas. Mostly the tortillas are dipped into the bean sauce and folded into half-moon shapes, but they can also be filled with cheese, meat or veggies of your choice. To make it better, you can top it off with a variety of Mexican garnishes like sour cream, avocado, cheese, chiles, salsa!
