Ask Plated: What Are Enchiladas?

Enchiladas are corn tortillas rolled around a savory filling, then topped with a chile sauce and baked. They began as a street food that brought together two staples of Mexican cuisine: tortillas and chile sauce. (The Spanish word enchiladas means “in chile.”) The appeal is easy to pick up on. This is an economical meal that can be made using leftovers, and it’s both hearty and versatile. While traditional Mexican enchiladas are made with cheese, nowadays, they can be filled with any variety of meat, chicken, seafood, or vegetables.
