16 Frescados Yellow Corn Tortillas
28 oz red enchilada sauce
3/4 cup beef broth
1 tbsp honey
3 cups shredded chicken or pork
1 cup crumbled queso fresco
1 cup chopped cilantro
1 cup chopped onion
oil for frying
lime and avocado for serving
In a saucepan, combine enchilada sauce, broth and honey. Bring to a simmer for 20 minutes, or until sauce thickens.
In a skillet, add enough oil to cover bottom of pan and bring to medium heat.
One at a time, carefully dip tortillas into enchilada sauce, covering both sides. Place tortilla into skillet and fry both sides to sear the sauce to the tortilla. Tortillas are tender, handle with care.
Fill tortillas with shredded meat then sprinkle cheese, cilantro and onion on top. Line cast iron pan with enchiladas (filled like tacos) and drizzle with any remaining enchilada sauce and toppings.
Bake at 350 degrees F for 8-10 minutes to make edges of tortillas crispy.
