Here's the recipe:
Julia's Awesome Enchiladas
1lb. chicken breast (on the bone or not)
1 clove garlic
5 medium Chili Guajillo
20+ flour tortillas (Guerrero is preferred)
Step 1: Prepare the chicken
Boil the chicken in water with a little bit of onion, garlic and spearmint (90minutes)
Step 2: Making the authentic sauce
Add 5 or 6 medium sized Chili Guajillo (but first-even if you are Mexican-take out the seeds).
Boil the chili Guajillos in the water until they are soft (about 10 minutes)
Drain the water
Put the chilis, 1/2 clove garlic and one slice of onion and 3/4 c. water in a blender
Blend it! (you probably know what it looks like, but here's a picture anyway)
Pour blended mix through a strainer back into the pot.
Add about a tbsp of salt
Shred the chicken.
warm the tortillas (no oil) on a pan.
Put the warmed tortillas in a towel to keep them warm
Step 5: the Magic
Heat oil in a pan
Dip the warmed tortilla in the sauce, then fry it up in the oil-very quickly on each side*
Put the chicken in the tortilla and roll it up.
Repeat 20 times.
Serve it with Julia's awesome salsa, lettuce and some sour cream.
Julia's awesome salsa:
5 Chili de arbol
20 tomatillos (the smaller the better)
Boil about 5 Chili de arbols and 20 little tomatillos until soft (about 10 minutes).
put in a blender with a 1/2 clove garlic, about a 1/2 c. water and a dash of salt.
Blend, blend, blend. It will look green at first, but keep blending until it's got a lot of red color in it.
