Growing up in East Los Angeles meant that I had a huge selection of Mexican food at my disposal. From flautas to sopas, pozoles, tacos, and enchiladas, I had a huge variety of dishes to choose from. My dearest friend Mari’s family owned a restaurant in East L.A. called La Serenata. They were the pioneers of the gourmet Mexican food movement here in L.A. It was there that I experienced my first plate of enchiladas suizas (Swiss enchiladas). An enchilada suiza is basically a chicken enchilada in a creamy, green chile sauce. It's very simple, but so yummy! I've been making them ever since, and they are now a family favorite! MORE + LESS -
