Mexico -- One Plate at a Time with Rick Bayless
The Whole Enchilada (#101)
The word "enchilada" simply means "in chile" and in Mexico, the most beloved version is actually a street snack: a corn tortilla dipped in chile sauce that's a far cry from the limp, stuffed tortillas swimming in a sea of red sauce and molten cheese that we're familiar with in the U.S. Rick shows us how to make classic "Street Style" Red Chile Enchiladas at home, and how to transform them into a simple, satisfying brunch presentation, Red Chile Enchiladas with Spicy Potatoes and Fried Eggs. At Sanborn's in Mexico City, the colorfully tiled restaurant where the famous dish, Enchiladas Suizas, was invented, Rick explains that "Suiza" means Swiss, a tribute to the dish's use of cream and cheese. This inspires a visit to a Mexican creamery stall, a lesson in making homemade "cream," the Mexican version of cream frache, and a third dish, Rick's own Creamy Enchiladas with Chicken, Tomatoes and Green Chile.
