Do they really use flour tortillas for enchiladas in Texas???
My south of the border friends have all sorts of names for gringos who do this, LOL

Rice, beans, corn, salsa?
That's a Speedy Layered Burrito Pie

Have you seen the posts in the enchilada thread?
There are chicken or green enchiladas available in Texas. Some use flour and some use corn tortillas. There are many recipes out there. Paka's looks good. I've tried them once with flour. My wife has made enchilada pie with corn tortillas. People toss everything into casseroles. There are hundreds of variances in recipes out there.. See the Chili thread.

Sure it looks good - I wasn't giving Paka a hard time!

It's regional differences and how you ate when you were growing up - and, no I won't go to the Enchilada thread because my mind is already made up, LOL

Some of those chili recipes look pretty "busy". I'm an old dog and I'm certainly not changing my mind or tastes. .....I think I should have stayed out of the Enchilada thread too.

You could use either corn or flour tortillas, but I think a LOT of the country is more familiar with flour tortillas then we are here in S. Texas!

Paka, that recipe looks really good. I love anything that's classified as Mexican food. Yum.

I kinda get the idea that this is an Old El Paso recipe originally since it specifies that brand for anything they make...LOL

Of course, interchangeable every step of the way! Some folks like to add black olives as well I have been told...and I have a girlfriend that covers each one with shredded lettuce, sour cream and guacamole before serving.
