Enchiladas, the main appetizer of Mexican cuisine

By JesúsAlbavera Alvarez

The enchiladas are part of the wide range of traditional Mexican delicacies directly descended from corn and can be prepared with so many different ingredients to create over 100 varieties of this dish. This dish is considered one of the main delicacies within the category of appetizers or snacks in Mexican cuisine and is derived from the tortilla, having origins in pre-Columbian civilizations of Mesoamerica.

The enchiladas are known in Mexico since the time when Miguel Hidalgo, Vicente Guerrero and José María Morelos traveled through the country and found a wide variety of delicacies in all the places they visited. Among these treats they stumbled upon were traditional drinks like atole, hot cocoa and pulque, as well as typical snacks like Tlacoyos, tostadas, gorditas, sopes and the delicious enchiladas.

In Mexican cuisine corn and chili are the basis to prepare many specialties. Since pre-Hispanic times these ingredients have given identity and spirit to Mexican dishes, which is why they are essential when preparing the enchiladas. Typically the ingredients used are corn tortillas, chicken, cream, cheese and a prepared sauce that varies depending on the taste of each person. However there are so many variations of this dish that make it possible to please even the most exclusive cravings.

You will find the best enchiladas in Cancún at La Parrilla, where you can enjoy this typical dish of Mexican cuisine in the two most common presentations, with green or red sauce.
