Enchilada Cupcakes and Gift From Beli

This idea popped into my head yesterday, and I knew I wouldn't be happy unless I tried it.

Sprayed tins with cooking spray and installed first corn tortilla(tearing the sides really helps them lay in better). Alternated layers of cheese and onions, pieces of tortilla, and red or green enchilada sauce as many times as I could before topping with egg. Cook raised indirect at 350 -400 until eggs are to your liking. They were very good, and I think variations are many. Oh, yeah, ...the mug is from Beli. Mama thought the cooking area was more appropriate than the cupboard :lol: Thanks, My Good Friend.

Good weekend to all from sunny San Antonio.

    Very nice! And the enchilada cupcakes look good too!
  • I like it. They look good and the name you came up with fits.

    I make the same eggy things, but I use wonton wrappers instead of the tortillas. I like them because you can add all kinds of herbs and different cheeses to make all kinds of variations.

    Have a good weekend.
    Happily egging on my original large BGE since 1996... now the owner of 6 eggs. Call me crazy, everyone else does!

    I was thinking of adding pork, but held off for the trial run. I think you have a great idea there.
  • Lawn RangerLawn Ranger Posts: 5,466

    Was the red sauce home made or store bought (and what brand)?

    Hey, Man! Long time. Hope all is well Terry.

  • Lawn RangerLawn Ranger Posts: 5,466
    It was store bought HEB tamale sauce. It was all I had. I would try the red enchilada next time. The HEB green enchilada sauce is great.
  • Lawn RangerLawn Ranger Posts: 5,466
    Count on it!
  • Lawn RangerLawn Ranger Posts: 5,466

    Nice idea! I notice a lot of Egg dishes at the mexican place I like to frequent. May have to explore them instead of my usual choices.
