  • Avocado Filling:
  • 3 ripe avocados
  • 1/2 white onion, minced
  • 1/2 cup minced cilantro
  • 12 serranos or jalapeños, minced (and seeded for less heat)
  • 1 tablespoon lime juice
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • Salsa:
  • 56 Roma tomatoes
  • 1/2 white onion, large chunks
  • 4 cloves garlic
  • 28 chiles de arbol
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon cumin
  • Pinch dried oregano
  • Black pepper
  • Optional: 4-8 ounces tomato sauce (for a redder color)
  • For Enchiladas:
  • 8 corn tortillas

  1. Make the filling first. Mash the flesh of the avocados until smooth. Add all other filling ingredients and set aside.
  2. For the salsa, Cut the tops off the tomatoes and cut them in half. Remove the seeds. Combine tomatoes with all other salsa ingredients except tomato sauce in a pot and add 2 cups water. Bring to boil over high heat, uncovered, and let boil about 8 minutes, or until tomatoes and onions are soft.
  3. Puree with an immersion blender or in a blender in batches until smooth. Add tomato sauce if you’d like a richer, redder color to your sauce.
  4. Warm tortillas in the microwave for a few seconds or steam them to soften.
  5. For each serving, place two tortillas on a plate, fill with 2 tablespoons avocado mixture, roll up tightly. Spread about a tablespoon of crema on them, then drench in the hot salsa (1/4 cup or more). Top with a couple tablespoons of the cheeses, which have been crumbled together.
