Red Chile Enchiladas
This recipe for traditional or christmas style red chile enchiladas comes courtesy of one of our valued customers. We'd like to extend a big thank you to William and Stacy Layman for allowing us to post it online. Start by cooking a whole chicken in boiling water with celery, onion, and bay leaf until the leg falls off when grabbed. Remove chicken, cool and take meat off. Strain liquid, retain, toss the rest. Once you have your protein prepared, you can move on to the sauce itself.
