  • In a large saucepan heat the 1 tablespoon oil over medium-high heat. Add the 1/2 cup chopped onion, the garlic, and a pinch of salt; cook for 2 minutes, stirring frequently. Stir in tomatoes, ancho pepper, pasilla pepper, and cayenne pepper. Cook, covered, for 4 to 5 minutes or until tomatoes can be easily mashed. Transfer mixture to a food processor or blender. Cover and process or blend until smooth. Return mixture to saucepan over medium heat.

  • Heat an extra-large skillet over medium heat. Add just enough oil to lightly coat the bottom of the skillet. When oil is hot, use tongs to dip each tortilla into enchilada sauce to generously coat both sides. Working in batches, cook each tortilla in hot oil for 15 to 20 seconds or until lightly browned on one side (be careful not to burn the sauce). Sprinkle about 1 tablespoon of the queso fresco on one half of each tortilla. Using a spatula, fold each tortilla in half over cheese; fold again so the tortilla is quartered. Transfer enchiladas to a serving platter. Top each with some of the cilantro and some of the finely chopped onion. Repeat to make 20 enchiladas total, adding more oil to the skillet as needed. (Refrigerate any leftover sauce for up to 3 days or freeze for up to 3 months).
