Here is a transcript of the Enchilada preparation instructions on the video:
This is the meat we are going to use to make the picadilla of the Mexican Enchiladas. You can use most any type of ground beef that you like to use. (different amount of lean 75%, 80%, 85%, etc). A carrot, a potato, a clove of garlic, half of an onion. Slice up the potato, and we're going to make it into cubes. When everything has been chopped up, we'll cook it together with the meat. Do the same thing with the carrots and chop them up.
Everything the chopped up before cooking. Alternatively, you can purchase packets of these ingredients already chopped up and ready to be cooked. Chop the onion, the garlic, chop up everything for cooking. Add a teaspoon of salt, more or less to taste.
When everything has been chopped up, you can put it all together to be cooked along with the meat. This is what you'll be using to make the original salsa for the enchiladas. You need a pepper called Chile Mulato. 2 Chiles Mulatos for this recipe that are the size shown. Remove the seeds from the inside of the peppers and put them to boil in the water. The tomato will cook for four minutes, and the chile peppers will cook for 10 minutes. Both the peppers and the tomato can cook in the same water.
Now the chile peppers and tomato have finished cooking and they are ready to be placed in the blender. With a piece of onion, with a quarter part of a piece of onion, cut it up into pieces and put into the blender along with a clove of garlic and 2 tablespoons of white vinegar.
This is the garlic. Now the ingredients we have in the blender include onion, garlic, vinegar, tomato, chile mulato... 1 teaspoon of salt. And that's everything you need to make the salsa for the enchiladas.
Here is what we need to put on top of the enchiladas when they are ready to be served. If you would like, you can put sour cream, chopped lettuce, and shredded cheese on top. We take a glass pan and put on a non-stick spray. There are several types of tortillas you can use. This brand in the video works well and doesn't break up as some other brands can.
We can put 2 tortillas at a time in the salsa mix. Using 1 teaspoon of cooking oil. Olive oil is used here. We dip the tortillas into the salsa mixture, letting the salsa soak into both sides of the tortilla. And we cook them in the frying pan for half a minute on each side. Then we move them to the glass tray where we add the filling mixture.
Put about 1 or 2 spoon fulls of filling mixture in the enchilada. Roll them up like this and group them in the glass tray. We can repeat the same procedure for all the enchiladas we want to prepare. 1 teaspoon of olive oil in the frying pan.
If you prefer a simpler enchilada that's quicker to prepare you can simply make them with the cheese and onion. I will show you how to do this now. Here I have, already chopped up, the cheese, whichever type of cheese you would like, and the onion. For using as the filling of the enchiladas. We repeat the same procedure.
We put on the cheese, and the onions. We roll them up the same way we did before. When you have finished rolling up all the enchiladas, and you have them in the glass tray, you can sprinkle shredded cheese on top and heat in the microwave to melt the cheese. And they'll be ready to serve and eat. Or, you can transfer the enchiladas from the glass tray to a serving platter or plate, and you can add sour creme and chopped lettuce on top and server them that way.
The type of cheese you sprinkle on top can be a mexican cheese or any type of cheese that you like. And that is how you make original enchiladas from Mexico. And you can serve the enchiladas in the traditional fashion (as is done in the Mexican restaurants) with rice and beans. These are authentic enchiladas from Mexico.
