On a recent trip to Las Vegas, my husband and I ate at a restaurant called Taqueria Canonita at the Venetian hotel. We had the wild mushroom poblano cream enchiladas and they were amazing!! Of course I wanted to try recreating it at home. I looked online for ideas on the recipe and ended up making the enchiladas for some friends one night for dinner. I ended up combining and modifying a few different recipes to get the taste that I wanted for the sauce, so before I post the recipe for the enchiladas, I need to make them again to verify my methods and ingredients. UPDATE: I posted the enchiladas recipe…and they are delicious!!
In addition to the enchiladas, I thought some type of cilantro rice would go well with the dish. After looking online for some recipes, I recalled going to a friends house and having a simple yet tasty cilantro rice dish that left a memory. So I asked her for the recipe and here it is below! It was a perfect side to the enchiladas and would probably work as a side for many different dishes.
