    Default Enchilada shootout

    For the past 4 years, we have hosted an Enchilada shootout. People bring their favorite/most creative enchilada recipe and we all sample and vote on the best.

    It's good times.

    I'm looking for a clever/unique recipe. The first year a chocolate, banana enchilade won. (I thought that was cheating.) Then we've had a habanero winner and two vegetarian winners.

    Do you all have any suggestions?

    I'm pretty sure sour cream chicken enchiladas are the height of tex-mex enchilada fare.

    6 Dead in Enchilada Shootout

    Reuters
    11:55 pm The O.C. Cali

    Six people are dead and countless others injured after a shootout at an underground enchillada party. Witnesses state that the violence erupted shortly after 9 p.m. when the enchilada of the year was awarded to a chocolate banana enchillada. A group of party goers confronted the judges stating that they thought that was cheating, when the judges ignored them they brandished their weapons and struck down the two judges as well as the creator of the chocolate banana enchillada, and the chef who created a habanero enchillada. (two vegetarians were also killed in the gunfire)

    Things can get pretty fired up during judging after several tequila shots.

    That's the only kind of shot you'll find in the Gunz house.

    chocolate and banana enchiladas are for the seedy dregs of toddler society.

    Tamales are really good but sometimes people make them with too much masa and it overpowers the actual ingredient inside

    Agreed.

    It was quite a controversial decision.

    I like tamales but you can't get creative with them like you can with enchiladas.

    What about Mac 'n Cheese? Do you think it has potential for creativity?

    We are considering a White Trash Mac Fest for June.

    I had a chocolate tamale with a rasberry salsa 2 years ago at the festival. It was pretty good.

    Algunz, I'm trying to think of something right now. It's hard to say without actually experimenting on it first. Things that automatically come to my mind; chanterelle or morel mushrooms, foie gras, gruyere, liquified sweet corn, cilantro, heavy cream, corn tortillas from cinco puntos. I don't know. I just ate at Panda right now and my mind isn't on food.
