Street Enchilada Folded Enchiladas are popular Mexican Street food that is very easy to make at home too.

So here we are, the final week of April and the last week for our month long mega marathon. This week I’m going to ‘Explore the flavors’ of Street food from around the world. I am starting the week with these Folded Enchilada aka Street Enchilada from Mexico.Vegetarian Street EnchiladaWe love Mexican food in our house and I’m always looking for new recipes to try from that cuisine. So while looking for street food, I came across these delicious looking folded enchilada. These are mini versions of traditional baked enchiladas. They are quick and easy to make and are great to make even on a week day.

Traditional enchilada are quite a production to make. You have to make the filling, enchilada sauce and then assemble the casserole for baking. But these folded enchilada are not as involved. You still have to make enchilada sauce, but if you don’t want to spend that much time, then just get some store bought sauce.Vegetarian Street EnchiladaTypically soaked dried chilies and tomatoes are used to make enchilada sauce. But the recipe I used today is from a my friend. She makes a big batch of this sauce and makes excellent enchilada for a crowd. This recipe is not traditional, but easy to put together with ingredients you have on hand. You can store the prepared sauce in the fridge for up to a week and make enchilada whenever you want.

Street style Enchilada or Folded Enchilada are made with corn tortilla that are dipped in enchilada sauce and then filled with cheese, some times meat and folded over like a taco. You can stuff them with refried beans or grilled veggies, but I kept it simple and just used cheese. Both my kids loved these enchilada and I think I would probably make these more than the regular ones in the future 🙂
