In the middle of LA’s Little Bangladesh sits La Morena Oaxaqueña, a brightly decorated Oaxacan restaurant that’s known for making one very good coloradito. This velvety sauce falls on the reddish area of the mole color spectrum and has a warm sweetness from its cinnamon, nuts, and array of chilis that burn just enough to keep things exciting. Their enchiladas con coloradito are three soft tortillas covered in the semi-sweet sauce, queso fresco, onions, and your choice of either meat or a pile of Oaxacan quesillo. Take the heat up a few notches with their chile morita salsa that’s a citrusy yet smoky condiment that’ll have you biting your tongue for downplaying the coloradito’s heat.
