“These enchiladas are stacked like pancakes, not baked in oven. This is a family recipe handed down two generations. Quick, easy and definitely delicious. Use your favorite kind of meat in this dish - it also works well for leftover meat.” - by PIPERCAT99
Original recipe yields 6 servings
- Heat the oil in a large skillet over medium heat. Add the chicken pieces, and cook until browned. Season with cumin and chili powder. Pour in the enchilada sauce, and simmer for about 15 minutes. Stir occasionally.
- In a separate skillet over medium heat, warm the tortillas. Don't fry them, just warm them until they are flexible.
- To assemble the enchiladas, dip a tortilla in the enchilada sauce, and place it on a serving plate. Spoon some of the meat and sauce on, then add shredded lettuce, cheese, onion and sour cream. Top with another tortilla that has been dipped in the sauce. You may repeat the layering as many times as you wish depending on your appetite. Make additional stacks for each person. Top stacks with a fried egg, if desired.

"this is a good, easy recipe. and to those who rated it down because it uses "canned" things, shut up! from one who lives thousands of miles from fresh chile, I either rely on canned or do without...." See more"
