  • When they're in season, I like to serve a salad made of diced avocado, tomato, and cucumber with cotija cheese and a vinaigrette. Or I take some of the tortillas and cut them into very thin strips and put them in the oven with the enchiladas after giving a little spritz with Mazola cooking spray. While they crisp up, I make a salad of baby greens, radicchio, arugula, avocado, tomato, and cotija cheese. I make a vinaigrette with lime and cilantro, toss with the salad, and top with the tortilla strips. Then I make this awesome Mexican rice I got from the chef at Blue Corn Tortilla make it with pasilla and guajillo peppers, tomato bouillon, minced shallots and chicken stock. It's wonderful. Add black beans and it's dinner.

  • Sour cream and salsa :) Whenever I've done enchiladas, that has been the only part of the meal.

  • I don't know why we started, but we often have cornbread with enchiladas. ( I usually buy honey cornbread) Sometimes I'll throw some canned green chilies and cheese into the batter and spice it up. Other times I'll leave it plain. I've also had corn fritters or "cornmeal balls" at mexican restaurants before. I guess thats where I got the Idea that the sweet corn flavor goes well with mexican food!

  • I don't know the name of it but I use: olive oil, can of corn, can of black beans, can of Rotel (diced tomatoes w/ green chiles), cilantro, cumin and green onion. Sometimes I'll double the recipe, it makes a great side dish or dip w/ chips.
