Treat your ingredients with care...

  • Foie gras — Ensure the foie gras is diced into small pieces to distribute the flavor evenly throughout the enchiladas.
  • Wild mushrooms — Use a variety of wild mushrooms such as chanterelles, porcini, or morel for a rich and earthy taste.
  • Gruyere cheese — Opt for aged Gruyere cheese for a stronger and nuttier flavor in the dish.
  • Parmesan cheese — Grate the Parmesan cheese just before using to preserve its freshness and enhance its flavor.
  • Homemade tortillas — Take the time to make homemade tortillas for the best texture and taste. The combination of wheat and corn flour adds a unique touch to the dish.

Tips & Tricks

  • To add an extra layer of flavor, consider marinating the cooked chicken in a blend of spices and herbs before shredding.
  • For a touch of heat, add a finely chopped jalapeno or serrano pepper to the filling mixture.
  • Experiment with different gourmet cheeses such as truffle-infused cheese or aged cheddar for a unique twist.
  • Serve the Haute Enchiladas with a drizzle of balsamic reduction or a dollop of truffle aioli for an elegant finishing touch.
  • If foie gras is not available, substitute it with seared duck breast or sautéed wild mushrooms for a vegetarian option.

Serving advice

Serve the Haute Enchiladas on individual plates, garnished with fresh cilantro. Accompany them with a side of mixed greens dressed in a light vinaigrette to balance the richness of the dish.

Presentation advice

Arrange the Haute Enchiladas on the plate with the seam side down, showcasing the golden and bubbly cheese on top. Drizzle a small amount of the cream sauce around the enchiladas for an elegant touch. Garnish with a sprig of fresh cilantro for a pop of color.
