  • 8 Roma tomatoes
  • 1 onion divided
  • 1 fresh jalapeno
  • 4 cloves fresh garlic peeled
  • ½ teaspoon cumin
  • ½ teaspoon coarse salt decrease if using table salt
  • ½ teaspoon fresh coarse black pepper
  • ½ cup fresh cilantro
  • 1 dozen corn tortillas
  • 1 ½ tablespoons vegetable oil
  • 3 ½ cups cheddar and Monterey Jack cheese grated and blended; or cheese(s) of your choice
  • 1 cup Mexican rice
  • Refried beans, cooked and mashed


For the garnish

  • Sour cream for garnish
  • 1 cup Queso Fresco optional Mexican cheese, for garnish
  • avocado Sliced ,for garnish, optional


Method of Preparation

  1. To begin with the recipe, cut the tomatoes in half and place on a baking sheet, cut side down. Then cut the Jalapenoes in half, removing ribs and seed and place on the baking sheet, with the garlic cloves. Now cut one third of the onion and add to the baking sheet.
  2. While keeping the rack on the highest position, you need to broil for about five minutes, until the skin turns blackish but not completely burned. The tomato skin will easily come off by carefully lifting it and discarding. Now puree the broiled vegetables in a blender until it becomes smooth. 
  3. In a non stick skillet, add just enough oil to lightly coat the bottom. Then pour enough of the tomato sauce to coat the bottom of a 9×13-inch baking dish. You can also make these in small, individual casserole dishes.
  4. Now cook each corn tortilla for about 30 seconds, just enough to make them soft, but they should not become crispy. Now fill each corn tortilla with cheese and a sprinkling of onion and gently roll. You need to place, seam side down, into a baking dish.
  5. Pour remaining tomato sauce on top of the enchiladas so that the sauce coats them evenly. Garnish with cheddar & Monterey Jack cheese or your favourite cheese. Bake at 350°F for 25 to 30 minutes until it becomes bubbly and hot.
  6. Garnish with sour cream and avocados, if desired. Place Mexican rice and mashed refried beans on the side while serving.



You can also dip each lightly cooked corn tortilla in the sauce. 


You can add cooked chicken or beef into each corn tortilla, if you are a meat lover. However, Taco Palenque Entomadas Enchiladas does not feature meat.

Haven't done dine in, no time for that. Drive thru isn't bad, the wait time is the only thing that is meh; very long wait. But at least you get good fresh food:) The fajitas are good, was surprised that they were since this is a fast food type of place, not really feeling the crunchy tacos with the ground beef so much, they aren't bad, just not for me I suppose. Going to try there enchiladas next time. Will order inside also for to go.
