Why not put a platter of enchiladas out for a party or bring them to your next potluck? The enchiladas are easy to make, you can use any meaty filling you like—or black beans, corn, and avocado for a vegetarian filling—and a saucy platter of enchiladas is always a crowd-pleaser.
This recipe, originally developed by a friend of Chris Prosperi’s from Mexico, includes a surprise ingredient. Two tablespoons of peanut butter amps up the sauce’s creaminess and adds a slightly sweet umami note guests will be hard-pressed to identify (though, for safety, never keep nut ingredients or any allergen a secret!). The sauce is nuanced, uniquely flavored, and wildly delicious. These enchiladas are exactly what party food should be.
