So Gawdy, Over the Top, Incongrous & Semi Homemade That It Could Be a Rachel Ray Creation Or Just Your Typical Southwestern Abomination

Alright just a little banter from your friendly neighborhood Mexican food snob. After opening a bottle of Trader Joe’s Enchilada Sauce and discovering your typical overly vinagered, excessively Cumined & “Taco Seasoned” canned Enchilada sauce… I reviewed my pantry and decided to mock my “mortal enemies”


  1. 1Sautee the Chicken, Beans & Corn & set aside.
  2. 2Brown the Corn Tortilla Strips in Oil
  3. 3Add Enchilada Sauce (pan should be hot enough to make the sauce bubble and quickly coat the Tortillas)
  4. 4Turn the heat down to Medium-Low
  5. 5Stir in the sauteed Chicken mixture
  6. 6Sprinkle with the melting cheese, cover & cook on stove top until the cheese melts
  7. 7Plate… sprinkle with Parmesan, then Fresco, then finely chopped Pipicha (or any herb of your choice)
  8. 8Add further Abomination to Taste (perhaps some Chorizo, Velveeta, Brown Gravy or Frenched Onions from a Can?)
