 The spicy and yummy Mexican dish Enchilada is  a corn or flour Tortilla rolled around a filling and covered with a chili and tomato sauce.Fillings include combination of vegetables and when topped with cheese they taste good. We tried this recipe of home made enchilada sauce and the baked enchilada. I like to share this  recipe and I am sure this is another dish which will be enjoyed by all for its taste.
