The stacked enchiladas at Adobe Reds - JENNIFER SILVERBERG

  • The stacked enchiladas at Adobe Reds
This week I visit Adobe Reds (3108 Olive Street; 314-678-7999), a new restaurant that features the cuisine of New Mexico.

If you're unfamiliar with the cuisine of New Mexico state -- and, based on the dearth of New Mexican restaurants in St. Louis, you likely are -- the best place to start is the stacked enchiladas at Adobe Reds. This might conjure an image of plump traditional enchiladas stacked Jenga-style into a precarious tower. In fact, the dish looks like a cross between lasagna and chilaquiles: four corn tortillas layered with your choice of smoked pork, shredded beef or grilled chicken and then topped with cheese and a red or green chile sauce (or "Christmas-style," with both). 

The menu informs you that in New Mexico a fried egg is a mandatory addition to your stacked enchiladas. You might as well go all-in and get the fried egg.

Visit the RFT restaurant page late this afternoon or check back here tomorrow morning to see what I think.
