This tortilla tower is a show-stopper: dramatic, delicious, and oozing with melty cheese. Though the sauce tastes complex, it's made with canned chile sauce embellished with sweet spices, raisins, pine nuts, and smoky chipotle chiles.
Recipe: Stacked Chicken Enchiladas
Pair with: Merlot. Deep blackberry fruit plays off the tangy sweetness and the heat of the sophisticated sauce for these enchiladas. With gentler tannins than its Cab cousin, a fruit-forward Merlot can handle a little more spice. Recommended bottle: Palumbo Family 2007 Catfish Vineyard Merlot (Temecula Valley).
