      These were really good! I would make a little more of the sauce, because the amount of sauce we ended up with didn't quite make the tortillas (homemade) soft enough and I would like a little to drizzle over them once in the pan as well (I like sauce!). I used Mexican oregano and chili powder with ancho, cilantro, paprika, cayenne, lemon peel, turmeric, cinnamon, coriander, ginger, star anise, anise seed, cardamom, fennel, cloves and jalapeno. I cooked the chicken in a little bit of avocado oil. We used Monterrey Jack cheese. I definitely plan to make these again. Gracias! Made for the Epicurean Queens, ZWT5: Mexico/Tex-Mex/Southwest.
