    My Private Note



    Units: US | Metric

    • 2 -3 dried poblano chiles
    • 4 -5 dried california chilies
    • 3 -4 dried arbol chilies (these are for heat so don't add a lot if you can't handle spicy)
    • 1 lb monterey jack cheese
    • 1 tomato
    • 1 (20 ounce) can meat broth (depending on what meat you put inside the actual tortilla use that kind of broth)


    1. 1
      First you want to clean the dried chillies thoroughly taking out all the seeds inside.
    2. 2
      Second you want to put the chilies in a medium sized sauce pan with just enough water to cover up the chilies.
    3. 3
      After the water is in the saucepan put it over the stove on med-high heat.
    4. 4
      You'll know when the chilies are ready when the water is a dark red color and has a nice smoky smell to it.
    5. 5
      Wash and cut the tomato in half and place it in a blender along with the chilies and the water it was cooked inches.
    6. 6
      Add the chicken/beef broth as well into the blender. and blend thoroughly.
    7. 7
      Place the mixture back in a bigger saucepan and wait for it to start simmering.
    8. 8
      While the sauce is going into a simmer you can shred the 1 lb of cheese if you didn't buy it shredded already.
    9. 9
      Once the sauce is simmering add in the shredded cheese and stir.
    10. 10
      Pour onto your enchiladas and enjoy. :].
