  6. Sprinkle the top of the sauced enchiladas with the cotija cheese and then place the sliced Oaxaca cheese evenly across the top
  7. Bake in a preheated 450 over for approximately 10-15 minutes or until the Oaxaca cheese is melted and turning golden brown. Remove from the pan and let rest for 5-10 minutes
  8. In a small mixing bowl, combine crème fraiche and lime juice and stir to combine
  9. For serving, add the enchiladas to a plate and drizzle with the lime crème fraiche sauce. Garnish with additional chopped shallot or onion and cilantro or microgreens
