I make lame enchiladas. Help?

marigolds | Jun 16, 2007 10:21 AM

So I've been futzing around with enchiladas, and they're coming out really boring. What I'm looking for ideally is something chicken-based where the filling can be started in the crockpot (like chicken thighs cooked in some kind of delish sauce, which then becomes the filling for the enchiladas.) It seems in theory like an ideal recipe for long hands-off cooking and then short assembly time/baking after we get off work, but in practice...nope! Every time I've actually followed a recipe and taken all day, they've been great - but every time I try to shorten the hands-on process at all, they're bland, to say the least.

Any ideas? Or do I just have to do the Mexican grandma bit and cook all day to get good enchiladas?
