MMMMmmm Enchiladas: A Recipe From Gill Grylls

This is actually a recipe from an old place that used to be open when I was a kid and moved to Richmond TX. This was originally posted on my Facebook page.


Only those from Fort Bend County TX would remember the ol’ Richmond Drive-In and those damn delicious enchiladas. WELL…

I got the recipe and im going to post it on here according to the measurements they used in the restaurant back in the days. So just adjust the ingredients and amounts to however much you plan to make if you decide to try these.

Soooo here it goes….

  1. What happened to the restaurant? My family used to drive forever to get there and it was well worth it. That’s where I learned to love Mexican food. Did they move?

  2. Mindy, Richmond Drive-In closed years and years ago. I know I was still in middle school or so I think when it did. Same with me, that is where I learned about mexican food besides what my family would cook!

  3. I grew up in Richmond, TX and these enchiladas are the best ever!!! Do you have the recipe for their Fried Bell Pepper Rings??? I’ve re-opened Ms. Agnes’ Old Trading Post in Booth, TX. It is called “The Old Trading Post” My email is and the website is
