Enchiladas with A Twist

An enchilada is a corn tortilla rolled around a filling and covered with a chili pepper sauce. Enchiladas can be filled with a variety of ingredients, including meat, cheese, beans, potatoes, vegetables, seafood or combinations.

During our fasting month of Ramadaan I had some leftover sliced viennas and chips which were mixed in sauces ( mayo, tomato sauce, chilli sauce and mustard sauce ) and so I decided to put together some Mexican styled enchiladas with a twist..

Quick and easy.. yes, as you’ll read in most of my posts I’m a big fan of meals that can be made up at the last minute with minimal hassle ­čÖé This dish is flavourful, colorful and great as a side or as a main. The filling is easily interchangeable with a traditional steak, chicken or mince enchilada filling.
