I bet you thought this blog would lead you to some mouthwatering enchiladas in Irving, Texas. Well, just hang on and ride, that's coming up in a bit. But first, I wanted to remind you of the great many events going on in Irving over the weekend. Instead of listing just a few, what we've got here is the WHOLE enchilada.  So as our great Mayor Stopfer says, "Get out there and enjoy our great city!" And for other area events, be sure to visit our website at www.irvingtexas.com.

Via Real Shrimp & Crab Enchilada

I couldn't leave you hanging now could I? Irving has the best Mexican food and TexMex restaurants around. And if you think I'm bragging, you should try out one of these restaurants this weekend and taste for yourself.  You'll be glad you did.

  • 7 Salsas Mexican Restaurant: Ask for their Villachiladas - 2 cheese enchiladas topped with chile con carne and 3 strips of beef or chicken fajita served with rice and beans.
  • El Famoso: Try the Sour Cream enchiladas - Three chicken enchiladas smothered in sour cream sauce and jack cheese.
  • Glorias: I absolutely love their Spinach Cheese Enchiladas topped with green tomatillo sauce and Monterey Jack cheese, with rice and beans.
  • Mattitos: I recommend their Enchiladas de Mole - two chicken enchiladas covered in Mole sauce and Queso Fresco, with cilantro lime rice and black beans. Mmmm.
  • Via Real: And last, but only because I'm listing them alphabetically, is Via Real's Adobo Shrimp & Crab Enchiladas - grilled Adobo jumbo shrimp atop crab enchiladas, with mango black bean salsa and lemon butter sauce.  My mouth is watering just thinking of these. Try it with a Margarita.  You're welcome.
