Chicken Tikka Enchilada

Chicken Tikka Enchilada

Enchilada is a Mexican dish in which the boiled and pulled chicken are stuffed and rolled inside the tortillas and then its drenched in Enchilada sauce topped with cheese and then baked to perfection! Here the marriage of Indian and Mexican food makes it a lip-smacking dish. The combination of tikka masala, cheese and tortillas with perfectly grilled tikkas makes it extra delicious!

It was a real hit recipe! I took it for a party and everyone over there enjoyed it to the fullest, it makes me so happy! First I thought to post this recipe during Ramadan, but those friends are behind me for the recipe and I decided to share it during this isolation time itself! If you can’t reach your hands on tortilla use leftover chapatis for a healthier and quick option!   

While Kneading for the chapati use half wheat and half all-purpose flour. I’m sure this one will be a hit recipe among you guys too! That Indian flavor along with the Mexican Enchiladas are for sure is treat for our Indian taste buds! They use almost our similar spices and that’s why I love Mexican food!
