The Best of the Best: Blue Iguana’s Enchilada Triumph

Securing the prestigious title of Best Enchilada, Blue Iguana stands tall as the epitome of culinary craftsmanship. With nine tantalizing varieties to choose from, Blue Iguana invites patrons to embark on a flavor-filled journey, each bite a testament to the culinary artistry that defines the essence of Mexican cuisine. Whether savoring the robust flavors of slow-cooked chile verde, indulging in the creamy richness of enchiladas suizas with mole poblano, or reveling in the succulent tenderness of enchiladas amarillas with tender carnitas, every dish tells a story of passion and tradition.

Pair with any of a dozen margaritas or their signature cantarita cocktail. You could also enjoy them with a mojito when things get hot in the summer. These are the best enchiladas in Utah right now, so why not enjoy them?

Blue Iguana’s Irresistible Molcajete

In the category of Best Molcajete, Blue Iguana once again captivated the palates of Utahns, earning a well-deserved place among the culinary elite. For those less familiar with authentic Mexican food, molcajete is a mix of foods served in a stone bowl. Their molcajete contains grilled steak, chicken, shrimp, cactus, and bacon-wrapped jalapenos stuffed with cheese. All of this is in tomatillo sauce and panela cheese.

It serves two people and is an ideal date night food, made for intimate sharing. It’s also great to enjoy with the family with a couple of other entrees. This hard-to-find dish is spicy, gluten-free, and will fill you up. It’s ideally paired with a signature margarita or match it with one of the cocktails served in a Mexican clay mug for an authentic touch of Mexico.

Furthermore, Blue Iguana’s dedication to culinary mastery extends to the art of the Quesadilla, where they claimed a noteworthy position among Utah’s premier dining establishments.
