8 ounces HERDEZ® Salsa Verde

8 ounces HERDEZ® Salsa Casera, Medium

1 (16-ounce) package of queso fresco, crumbled

8 corn tortillas

12 ounces skirt steak

Drain excess oil and place pliable tortilla on sheet pan. Working one at a time, place 2 ounces queso fresco in center of tortilla. Roll tortilla and place into one small skillet, making 4 enchiladas total. Repeat process making 4 more enchiladas in a second pan. Meantime, season steak with salt and pepper and cook to desired degree of doneness. Pour HERDEZ® Salsa Verde over tops of one pan of enchiladas and sprinkle with cheese. In other skillet pour HERDEZ® Salsa Casera over tops of enchiladas and sprinkle with cheese. Cover and cook over medium heat for 3-5 minutes. Transfer to plate and serve steak between one HERDEZ® Salsa Verde Enchilada and one HERDEZ® Salsa Casera Enchilada.

Cook’s Note

Chef Tips Skip the oil and wrap tortillas in a damp paper towel and cook 15 seconds in microwave to warm. Enchiladas are great when drizzled with HERDEZ® Guacamole Salsa.
