Fabulous recipe from the El Coyote Cafe, the oldest Mexican food restaurant in Los Angeles. I'm posting it exactly as I got it, but we usually make a great big 13 x 9 pan of the enchiladas (just keep rolling them up until your pan is full) and double the ranchera sauce. It looks like way too much sauce, but it cooks down in the oven and the flavor is fantastico!
