Enchiladas con huevos
Mon, 06/23/03 5:19 PM
I grew up in West Texas and we used to go visiting in Carlsbad, New Mexico quite often. We always ate a little Mexican cafe downtown called Ricks, and they served their enchiladas flat and stacked and topped with a fried egg. We always just called them "New Mexico" enchiladas
We never thought this was unusual til we moved out of the West Texas area and hardly ever ate anywhere where eggs on enchiladas were an option. There are several older Mexican places here in the Houston area where it is an option on the menu, but most people look at you like you were requesting something really bizzare.
When I make enchiladas at home, I make the flat, stacked and egged and they are delicious.
Does anyone know more about the egg/enchilada topic?
