2-serving instructions (4-serving modifications in red)

Wash produce before use


Crisp the tortillas

In a large frying pan over medium heat, warm 1 to 2 tablespoons oil until hot but not smoking. Working in batches, add the tortillas and cook, turning once, until crisp, 2 to 4 minutes per side. Transfer to a paper-towel-lined plate and season with salt. Add more oil between batches if needed.
While the tortillas crisp, start preparing the chorizo.


Cook the chorizo

  • Cut a small corner from the chorizo packaging and drain off any excess liquid. Transfer to a plate; pat dry with a paper towel.
In a medium [large] sauce pot over medium-high heat, warm 1 to 2 teaspoons oil until hot but not smoking. Add the chorizo and cook, stirring to break up the meat, until browned and cooked through, 5 to 7 minutes. Using a slotted spoon, transfer the chorizo to a paper-towel-lined plate to drain. Pour off any fat in the pot. Do not clean the pot.
While the chorizo cooks, prepare the jicama sticks and lime yogurt.


Make the jicama sticks and lime yogurt

  • Zest and juice the lime (the juice will be divided between the jicama and the yogurt).
  • Using a sharp knife or a peeler, remove the peel from the jicama; cut the white flesh into ½-inch-thick slices, then cut the slices lengthwise into ½-inch-thick sticks.
In a medium bowl, stir together the lime zest, 1 tablespoon [2 TBL] lime juice, and as much chili powder as you like and season with salt. Add the jicama and toss to coat.
In a small bowl, stir together the yogurt, 1 tablespoon [2 TBL] lime juice, and 1 tablespoon [2 TBL] water; season to taste with salt and pepper.


Prep the remaining ingredients; warm the sauce

  • Peel and finely chop enough onion to measure ½ cup [1 cup].
  • Crumble the queso fresco.
  • Coarsely chop the cilantro.
In the same pot used for the chorizo, add the green enchilada sauce base and cook over medium-high heat, stirring to scrape up any browned bits from the bottom of the pot, until warmed through, about 1 minute. Remove from the heat.


Assemble the stacked enchiladas

Using tongs, dip 1 tortilla into the sauce to coat thoroughly. Transfer the tortilla to a plate and sprinkle with some chorizo, onion, and queso fresco. Repeat 2 more times, then place a final sauced tortilla on top. Repeat to form a second enchilada stack on another plate. Drizzle the stacked enchiladas with the lime yogurt and garnish with the cilantro.


Serve the stacked enchiladas with the jicama sticks and any remaining sauce on the side.
