Just like her famous friend Marlene Dietrich, Dolores del Rio was know to be an excellent cook. Here is her recipe of her famous enchiladas.
2 small cans of green “chiles” (Ortega)
1 pint of sour cream
1 pound fresh tomatoes
1 onion (medium size)
1 dozen tortillas
4 asaderos (Mexican cheese)
Scald tomatoes and peel. Cut onions fine, fry them in lard, then add tomatoes and mix, then cut chiles fine, too, and add, then season with salt and add asaderos, until it begins to melt; remove from fire.
Fry tortillas, one by one, in lard, leave them soft. Place tortillas on plate and put in the center of each one a mixture of tomatoes, onions, cheese and chiles, roll each one and cover them with sour cream. Serve immediately.
