I moved away from Austin about 7 months ago but am back in town visiting family. I had La Fogata's enchiladas potosinas today after a long time. These are just sooo delicious. I know regular board members already know about this place but I just had to come on and sing its praises again.
To 'enchilar' (envelop in chiles) these tortillas, the seasoned chile puree is worked into the masa, rather than using it to souse a fried tortilla as in other regional styles of enchiladas. The fresh tortillas enchiladas are stuffed (I like the cheese option, it's just crumbled queso fresco), then grilled till slightly crispy. A few of these are served garnished with more queso fresco and lashings of crema. Avocado slices and salsa also goes on top (you have the option of roja, verde, or picosa (spicy) for the salsa-I prefer the picosa). For those that enjoy cueritos (pickled pork skin), you are supposed to eat this with these enchiladas, but that is not my thing.
The enchiladas are really flavorful...this is not a dish to be missed!
