Enchiladas de Suelo

From the Mexican state of Sinaloa, these are open-faced enchiladas with a hearty topping of zucchini, lettuce, Cotija cheese and Mexican chorizo. The corn tortillas are first dipped in a rich Ancho Chili Sauce then fried to soften, giving them a smoky-sweet chili flavor and bright red color.
