…using the traditional old-world flavors of Mexico
Our gourmet prepared Mexican food is made with whole and natural ingredients in our cooking just like our mothers and grandmothers. No preservatives. No junk.
We are passionate about providing customers with high quality homemade flavorful prepared gourmet enchiladas. Each enchilada from Cocina DeLeon is hand rolled and filled with high quality and natural ingredients. At Cocina DeLeon we cook for our customers just as we cook for our friends and family – “Con Carino” – with care and love.
It really is all about the sauce and our enchilada sauce has been called “addictive” by many of our customers for good reason. We start with our own red chile paste made from de-seeded guajillo and ancho chiles and add whole tomatoes, fresh garlic, onions and peppers. The result is a layered complex sauce that is full of flavor and depth.

Linda Mulholland started Cocina DeLeon in late 2008 after three different girlfriends urged her to “sell those enchiladas”! Linda’s enchiladas are a family recipe and were her signature dish.
Linda’s mom, Laurinda Rodriguez DeLeon Hanschman, was born and raised in Monterrey, Mexico and the family was immersed in the Mexican food culture on her family’s yearly summer trips to Monterrey. Laurinda was famous for her “enchilada dinner parties” and Linda and her sister, Sandy, helped prep for those dinner parties by diligently sautéing the vegetables for the sauce, frying the tortillas exactly to their mom’s specifications and filling and rolling them tight with just the right amount of meat, cheese and onions. Linda’s mom used to tell her girls, “hijas – con carino” which means “with love and care”. Cook with love.
Linda continued to practice her enchilada making craft on her college buddies and then again as an adult. Lo and behold, those famous enchiladas became Linda’s dinner party staple for her own neighborhood parties and for her husband, Jan’s, many business dinners.
Cocina DeLeon began simply as an enchilada delivery and catering service and has blossomed into a Brookfield, WI prepared food shop that provides mail order gourmet enchiladas and Mexican food catering across Milwaukee. In 2012, Cocina DeLeon expanded into the grocery market selling Linda’s gourmet frozen enchiladas in fine grocery stores all over Southeastern, Wisconsin. Cocina DeLeon represents so much more than just great food, we are proud to be a true family business. Linda’s husband, Jan, joined her as a business partner, and their son, Andrew, works part time at the store as well. With seven employees, they continue to grow and look forward to expansion in the Chicago area by early 2014.
