Ingredients List

  • 6 cloves garlic
  • 1 medium onion, diced
  • 5 dried ancho chilis
  • 1/3 cup dried crushed pasilla peppers
  • 5 oz sundried tomatoes in oil
  • 1 cup fire-roasted tomatoes
  • 1 teaspoon Mexican oregano
  • 1/4 Tbsp canola or light olive oil
  • 1 1/4 cup chicken broth
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 3 Tbsp olive oil
  • 1 1/2 lbs chorizo
  • 2 chicken breasts, poached and shredded
  • 8 Maria & Ricardo’s Quinoa Tortillas
  • 11/2 cups Mexican cheese, shredded
  • 1/2 cup Queso Fresco, crumbled
  • Chopped cilantro, for garnish (optional)
  • Diced avocado, for garnish (optional)
  • Sour cream (optional)

Directions

  1. Heat oven to 375 degrees F
  2. Make the enchilada sauce: In a blender or food processor, combine garlic, onion, chilis, peppers, sun-dried tomatoes, fire-roasted tomatoes, oregano, oil, broth and salt.
  3. Heat 1 Tbsp oil in a large skillet over medium-high heat. Cook chorizo and chicken together until chorizo is cooked through. Add 1/3 of the enchilada sauce.
  4. Brush tortillas with remaining olive oil. In a large skillet over medium heat, warm tortillas on each side until lightly brown.
  5. Spoon filling into tortillas, roll up and place in a 9x13” baking pan. Top with remaining enchilada sauce and shredded cheese.
  6. Cover and cook 30-35 minutes, then remove cover, top with Queso Fresco and bake until cheese is melted. If desired, garnish with cilantro and avocado. Serve with sour cream.
  7. Vegan version: Replace chorizo with 15 oz refried black beans and 20 oz meatless chicken. Top with vegan cheese shreds.
