#28 - Pollo Enchilada Verdes

Description: Three green enchiladas topped with green tomatillo sauce and cheese (rice only).

An enchilada is a traditional Mexican dish. Enchilada comes from the verb enchilar ("to add chile pepper to"). Enchilada literally means "seasoned with chiles". The traditional enchilada sauce is just that—dried red chile peppers soaked and ground into a sauce with other seasonings. However, red enchilada sauce may also be tomato-based with red chiles, while green enchilada sauce is usually made of tomatillos and green chiles. Mole may also be used as enchilada sauce.
