Swiss Enchiladas from Veracruz – Mexican Recipes

A variety of Mexican enchiladas topped with melted cheese and cream. Underneath the white cover is a layer of green chili sauce covering a tortilla stuffed with shredded chicken.

Contrary to the name, this is authentic Mexican food. The name Swiss enchilada is said to have come from Walter Sanborn (the founder of Sanborn’s), who upon arriving in Mexico said that the pure white dish reminded him of the snow in the Swiss Alps. .
