Dear SOS: I recently checked out Amaranta Cocina Mexicana at the Westfield Shopping Center in Woodland Hills. I’m not a vegetarian, but our server made us try these amazing hibiscus flower enchiladas that were truly life-changing. Do you think you could get that recipe? Thanks!

Dear S. Ashley: Jamaica flowers (of the hibiscus family) are typically found in vivid red teas, but these tart dried buds are an unusually delicious filling for enchiladas. They’re combined with peppers, onion and zucchini, then rolled in warm tortillas and topped with a spoonful of creamy chipotle sauce.
