Enchiladas can be full of rich and layered flavors, created not only with the fillings, but the sauces. In this exciting class, we’ll see how complex these flavors can be while learning the techniques of making fresh, seasonal sauces and healthy tortillas and fillings. Come learn from an expert, Tessa Liebman, who has spent many summers in Mexico visiting her family learning the ins and outs of Mexican cuisine. We know how overwhelming it can seem to make new things (like a tortilla or an incredible mole) from scratch, but it doesn’t have to be! With a few key seasonal ingredients, herbs and spices, you’ll see how these flavors, textures and tastes meld to create incredible enchiladas. With this knowledge on hand it will be simple to make any of these dishes at home, and you’ll be amazed they came from your own kitchen!
