Special Guest Post–Mexican Cheesy Enchiladas with Red Mole Sauce

INTRODUCTION

Guaishushu was constantly peeping through my peers blogger’s kitchen, and he saw one women working hard and doing all kinds of baking and cooking adventures to please her 2 lovely daughters and her handsome American husband. 2 days ago, Guaishushu overheard that she told her husband that she wanted to cook him a romantic meal of Cheesy Chicken Enchiladas with Red Mole Sauce for the family this weekend, Guaishushu immediately asked her whether she can teach him this Mexican dish since he is rather ignorant of Western cuisines. Out of his expectation, this young woman (Ms. Shar Kay) who loves to adventure in her blogger kitchen (http://delishar.blogspot.com) had gladly shared her recipe with Guaishushu’s reader..

In the same boat as Guashushu, Ms. Shar Kay had just started her blogging career in August 2013, 3 month’s later than Guaishushu. However, the cuisines that she designed were amazing and mostly Western Cuisines since her American husband had some “difficulty” of having rice for all the meals. Gusishushu liked to Pin her cuisines on Guaishushu’s international Pinterest Board, what made me jealous is that her pins always attract more repins from Western followers. The conclusion is only one : her recipes are good. Therefore, Guaishushu had decided to invite Ms. Shar Kay to have a guest post today and I am sure readers will like this special Mexican cuisine posts of hers.

When Guaishushu kindly asked if I’d like to contribute a guest post on his blog, I was thrilled and very honoured! He has been an absolute mentor to me from the time I started blogging, which was about 2 months back. Always willing to share tips and tricks on blogging, and cooking. Then I thought this recipe would be a good one to contribute as a guest blogger as it defers from the cuisine and cooking methods that Guaishushu uses. He is pretty traditional, and meticulous in this cooking. Which is pretty much a lost art nowadays, I have to say. What surprises me is that, he is also very open to experimenting new techniques and recipes! Finally someone who can switch back and forth between the old and new school of thoughts when it comes to cooking!

These enchiladas are a treat for my family because they are so rich and creamy, not to mention very very yummy. I did not use the commonly used red enchilada sauce as I really like the touch of chocolate used in Mexican cuisine’s mole sauce, so I created one that has a little of both. The spices combined with the slight tartness of the tomato sauce was nicely balanced out by the sweetness and slight bitterness of dark chocolate. And anything with melted cheese or stuffed with cheese is always a winner, and in this case… 2 times a winner! Special Guest Post–Mexican Cheesy Enchiladas with Red Mole Sauce

Let the sauce simmer for 5 mins until it thickens. Set aside for later. This makes about 4 to 4.5 cups of sauce, I usually make more and freeze it for future use.
