enchiladas

Enchiladas~ the sequel

I’ve posted enchiladas here before… and, I will be doing it again. Because- let’s face it: There are at least 2000 enchilada recipes out there.If you follow me on twitter or facebook, you know I got pretty annoyed at the corn tortillas. I soaked them & they still broke. Grrrrr. Good thing I had some flour tortillas on hand.

This has really been a grrr week.

It’s raining~ in my house. I’m really hoping that the insurance adjuster will allow it to be covered. Otherwise- I’m not sure what we are going to do. We’ll see. At least it’s not raining in the kitchen.

I decided I want a new roof for my birthday. That’s reasonable, right?

Anyway, these enchiladas! They are very unusual- the sauce is made up of creamed corn. Yep. True story. They are pretty corny. 😉

But… man oh man they are tasteeeee.

There’s more to em than corn also~ there’s Poblamo peppers, onions garlic and cumin.

Can you imagine how good they smell?! Oh yes.

I got this recipe from my daughter’s teacher. She let me borrow her recipe scrapbook. What an inspiration that was. It was about 3″ thick, with BEAUTIFUL pages for each recipe. I was too lazy to write down all the recipes; so I just photographed them.

Each page was so awesome. She’s my scrapbook idol.

So, you can see the corn tortillas… CRACK! GRRR!

But, once you slather on the sauce and cheese- it’s okay. Cheese fixes everything.

I even soaked those babies! This shot was taken BEFORE they got submerged, of course.

Notes

I used green chile pepper

My advice if you want to make this recipe? Use super fresh corn tortillas- or better yet, the flour/corn blend tortillas- or you could go “all flour”. But, the corn is worth it. My hubby took leftovers to work and just texted   how yummy it was. 🙂
