"Taco expert José R. Ralat notes in Texas Monthly that the word 'enchilada' is likely derived from the Nahuatl word chīllapīzzali, which means 'chile flute.'"

I don't buy this at all. I'm going to go find the video, but someone else gave a much more convincing etymology, enchilada meaning "enrobed in chile sauce."

Plus, that guy is a taco expert, not an enchilada expert. We need to hear from someone with the proper credentials.

Also not all enchiladas are rolled. I'm some parts they stack the tortillas like pancakes with the sauce and cheese and add a fried egg on top. Chili tambourine?

Both of them are sandwiches, but not all sandwiches are tacos/hot dogs. I would even say not all hot dogs are tacos, because you can separate the the bread on a hot dog, your total number of hot dogs has not changed, but when you separate the wrap/shell on the taco, you now have more tacos (though of a smaller size). It's the cardinality of the primary filler (1 hot dog) which prevents you from having multiple hot dogs until you divide that as well.

Considering that there are variations of enchilada that are more lasagna like in composition, this makes much more sense

A white guy doing a history of tacos?

For anyone with Netflix, I recommend the Taco Chronicles, although there was only one  episodes that was mostly in English (American tacos?  Maybe it was the burrito episode)

Nope.  Still Midwest Ladies Bowling League.  Winter League, though.  Weaponized window scrapers and block heaters.

For the last dang time, a hot dog is not a sandwich, anymore than deli meat by itself is a sandwich. "Hot dog" refers to the sausage, not the bun. When it's in a bun you may call the whole dang thing a sandwich, but the hot dog part is still just a hot dog. FFS.

The way the word is constructed is really similar to the way we do the same type of derivative words in English.

en- (implying "in", whether literally or subjectively) then -some root word- followed by -ado/a (implying -ed like the verb in a Spanish constuction like to have/had verbed, not to mention having D as the common consonant) to make an adjective that can also function as a noun. To the extent that em- replaces en- before B and P but not V like in English, despite spoken Spanish not having a B/V distiction.

Similarly:
encantado = enchanted
empoderado = empowered
empanada = "embreaded"
enviado = sent, but as a noun means envoy

So by that logic, enchilada = "enchilied."

Yeah, I assumed this was where the word comes from, makes more sense than it coming from a Nahuatl word that barely has any resemblance (other than the 'chil' syllable that's present in either explanation - and it's quite likely the Spanish word chile is derived from Nahuatl, but I suspect that's the extent of the connection)

Also, enchilada is the past participle of the Spanish verb enchilar, which means to add chile to - or so a quick Google search says.  I'm not really a Spanish speaker, so someone who is feel free to correct me.

If I order a hot dog off a menu, I get a sausage in a bun. The term "hot dog" can refer to either the sausage itself, or the total package including bun.
