Ah, enchiladas, the cornerstone of all Tex-Mex combo plates. Most are good in the sidekick position, but there are a very few that can take center stage and demand the spotlight for themselves. The mole enchiladas at La Guadalupana are among them. A little different from the ordinary rolled tortilla topped with cheese and a chili sauce, these enchiladas are made with lightly sautéed corn tortillas rolled around a chicken filling, then topped with a rich mole sauce. Okay, so far, nothing unusual. But then comes the Guadalupana signature, a layer of shredded lettuce, onions, avocado slices and Mexican cheese. The fresh lettuce and avocado make a nice counterpoint to the heavy, thick mole sauce, creating a savory mix of flavors. READERS' CHOICE: Chuy's Restaurant

I almost never ever eat enchiladas at ANY Mexican / Tex-Mex restaurant, but I took your word for it and tried the chicken mole enchiladas. OMG -- I wanted to lick the plate! This is a tiny restaurant with tough parking but OH SO worth it. The bakery glass case showcased some beautiful desserts. I am going to go back and OFTEN. I want to try everything on the menu. Thanks!
