    Do you have them? If so, how do you have them? I love Tex Mex food and have it a lot in the Summer. My typical recipe is standard enchilada sauce like Ole El Paso, black beans, cheese, and onions. Easy to make, very tasty. Season the beans as you like. I want to know people's recipes. I'm in a food mood these days.

    I know I'm on the wrong side of the wrong border, but from what I've tasted ...

    tamale > enchilada

    And yet, I've never attempted to make tamales. Who rolls their own?

    1293, that's a lot of trouble to make, but killer. Thanks.

    Big Daddy, I think tamales are in corn husks.

    You can use a rotisserie chicken. I make my own tortillas, but you can buy those, too.

    I think they're a lot more involved: you make a dough with masa harina (sp?) and fill that, all wrapped in a corn husk, then steam it.

    My ex-wife used to make tamales at Christmas. The meat would be made in a crock pot, and she would buy masa preparada at the grocery store. SHe could make 2 weeks worth of tamales in one night.

    I guess you can't buy masa preparada very easily in Canuckistan?

    As for enchiladas, I love 'em. I use my grandmother's secret sauce recipe - the canned stuff is too bitter

    Only if mashed up Tim Horton doughnuts are an acceptable substitute :(

    Mmmmm... Enchiladaaas:)

    I make 'em like I did back in college - stuck in the past I guess...

    Store-bought torts (which can be had in much better quality around here now). Run the tort through hot oil very quickly, roll up with less-than-you'd-think amount of filling, and place in baking dish - or onto plate if you're going to finish that way. Sauce and bake hot for a short time.

    Fillings vary, but I'm usually heavy on onions and cilantro with whatever meat. Beef gets red sauce, pork gets green, chicken can go either way. Shrimp with green is probably my current favorite.

    Actually just cheese and onions, which was a cheap go-to back in the day, is still one of my favorites too.

    Use as fresh corn tortillas as possible. Heat skillet of enchilada sauce, using a spatula dip tortilla flat in sauce to soften, put tortilla flat on plate if serving immediately or on cookie sheet if waiting, put in filling of meat, cheese, or sour cream, and cilantro and onions and chilis to taste, roll tortilla, spoon a little more sauce on top, garnish with white onion, some folks use cheese on top too. Growing up sour cream, onion and black olive enchiladas were our go to no meat Friday or lenten meals. My grandmother and mother never used anything other than sour cream as a filling.

    My grandmother's method: same as above but soften tortilla in lard, crisco or vegetable oil.

    Extra flavor if you make enchilada sauce from scratch. Triple extra if handmade corn tortillas from scratch.

    There is a store not too far from where I live called Dona Tere Tamales. They hand roll all the tamales and have tons of varieties; including different gravies/sauces to go with them. It is take-out and a real treat in our house for special occasions. We also go to Sylvia's Enchalada Kitchen ( http://www.sylviasenchiladas.com/ ). Sylvia has cooking classes on the weekend and as part of the class you get to eat the meal she prepares. Highly recommend her cook book for making enchiladas.

    I had a barrio Mama of one of my neighbors bring over some enchiladas Sunday night. They were chicken, jalapenos and cheese in a white sauce with some kind of fruit. Didn't know what it was but it was delicioso my friends! No red sauce at all.

    In Texas we like gravy on our enchiladas not some salsa type sauce like in New Mexico.

    Shrimp and mushroom enchiladas with a nice white cheese sauce.

    A few Dos Equis and enjoy.

    Stay thirsty my friend!
