Stacked Green Chile Enchiladas

Stacked Green Chile Enchiladas

Around this time of year, I always crave Mexican food. Let me rephrase that… being from Texas I crave it year round, but the craving is especially bad right after the holidays. Heck, I’ll eat it three times a day if I can. I think it’s from turkey and dressing overload, you know?

So after a lunch at Taco Diner (my new favorite place), Momma G and I decided that we needed enchiladas for dinner. Yep, tacos for lunch and enchiladas for dinner… that’s how we roll. These are super easy to put together and the recipe can be doubled, tripled or even quadrupled for a crowd. Just line up the ingredients and let ’em get to stackin’! Add in guacamole, chips & salsa, margaritas and you’re good to go. 🙂

Serves 3

9 white corn tortillas
1 lb ground beef, cooked
1 can green chile enchilada sauce
5 Roma tomatoes, diced
1 md onion, diced
4 jalapeño peppers, diced
Handful fresh cilantro leaves, chopped
4 cloves fresh garlic, minced
2 c shredded cheese
Shredded lettuce
Sliced green onions

In a medium non-stick pan, cook the ground beef until no longer pink, 8 to 10 minutes. While meat is cooking, make the pico de gallo by mixing together the tomatoes, onion, jalapeños, cilantro and garlic in a medium bowl and set aside.

Place can of enchilada sauce in a medium bowl. Dip one tortilla in the sauce to coat each side. Lay tortilla on a platter, top with 1/4 cup of meat, then 1/4 cup of pico de gallo and finally 1/4 cup of shredded cheese. Repeat process two more times for a stack of 3 enchiladas. Heat platter in microwave for 20-30 seconds until cheese is melted. Top with shredded lettuce, sliced green onions, any extra tomatoes and finally, cheese. Serve hot.

I LOVE stacked enchiladas! We just had taco diner the other night- so good! (and Jim Knox pulled in the parking spot next to us- haha!). I always make my great-grandmother’s stacked enchiladas right after Christmas- a much needed break from all the holiday food!
In fact, I just made them the other night and I’m reposting them because the old pictures are a nightmare!

I’ve never had stacked enchiladas! I want some now! Or, I’ll probably wait till the weekend to make them.

Taco Diner?? What am I missing? Are there any in Tarrant County or do I have to drive to Dallas?

Unbelievably, I’ve never had these stacks. Will try them this weekend. I totally relate about the Mexican food cravings.

Paula, none on the Fort Worth side… there are several locations in Dallas, but I think the closest one to you would be Southlake. Maybe we need a foodie get-together at one soon! 🙂

I tried to hold back… I tried not to make these tonight – but I couldn’t… I needed them!

These look delicious! I’ve never had or made stacked enchiladas and will have to give them a try. Your mention of Texas Mexican food really makes me miss living there, hubby and I would go out for Mexican all the time and it was always so authentic and delicious, now that we live back up north nothing can compare 🙁
