Our family usually prepares our red enchiladas montadas (stacked) topped with a fried egg. When I was a young girl I would watch my uncle Carlos eat his enchiladas with an over-easy egg placed on top. I finally had the courage to ask him if I could have a taste. It was love at first bite. The luscious yolk running down the stack of enchiladas gives this dish a unique flavor. With or without an egg, you’ll find yourself making this recipe time and time again. Serve with frijoles de la olla and arroz or macarrones con queso.
