enchiladas

There are two enchilada recipes I make… one got my husband to propose, and another that got invented because I had to use some things in my fridge. They both are keepers. This one I actually like better than the “proposal” one, mainly because there is no food processor to wash. 🙂

I think the hubby will agree that’s a nice part too…since he usually washes it.

No, he’s not “trained” he just gets really nice when I make enchiladas.

I do feel the need to address by absence lately. You know my dog died, and well… it has really put me in a slump. I managed to make a few things, ..but I can’t seem to conjure up motivation like I used to. I know it will pass,  and I hope y’all understand. I will be back to my daily rambling self. Soon. Maybe today is the start. We’ll see…

Enchiladas.

Let’s face it. It’s cold out. You want something baked in the oven that’s spicy and cheesy. Maybe a little corny, too.

Woah.That sounds like a bad movie.

Let me get really cheesy and corny and show you a few new items I found at the market:

(note: NOBODY is paying me to “pimp” these.)

these are a corn/flour blend tortilla. Awesome taste and they roll easily. I say woo-hoo to that.

You guys will love this- think of ii as liquid cream cheese. Instant cream sauce. Instant mmmm.

They make flavors. I like plain. Because then I can do whatever I want with it…

like make a spicy green chili sauce to put in with my plain ol’ chicken.

…of course there will be extra to smother these babies with…

you bet.
