Enchiladas

So, I recently discovered an oddity in my speech patterns. I pronounce the first vowel of "enchilada" with father [a], but I couldn't find anyone outside my family in Wisconsin who doesn't pronounce the first vowel like in "bench." I think we got it from our dad, who's from Ohio, but my mom's from the Dakotas, and she says it the same as we do. Does anyone else here say "ahnchilada"?
