Enchiladas & Spanish Rice

cc

*edited to add Let me preface this by saying this is my husbands plate and not mine. Mine you probably wouldn’t of been able to see any cheese on it cause I ration my enchilada very carefully. Someone has to count the calories in this house! I measure out a smidge of sour cream too.

If you haven’t noticed I adore just about anything with cheese. I also love Mexican food. Tacos & enchiladas are my favorite. Tamales are too but whenever I go to a Mexican rest. I always order a shredded beef taco and a beef enchilada.

I was updating my blog’s sidebar yesterday and putting in more pics and going over stuff and by golly I inspired myself! LOL I was putting up a picture of my home made enchilada sauce and I said, “That looks good!”

Home Made Flour Tortillas

I used my cast iron skillet. I really like this thing and am looking forward to making corn bread in it. That is the tortilla dough in the pan.

I just used white flour this time. Next time I will use half/half. A few weeks ago I was making chicken tacos for lunch for the kids and we ran out of chicken and my eldest ds wanted more. I thought about taking some cheese and corn tortillas and making a generic quesidilla for him but I thought, no I want to make him something really yummy. I stopped what ever else I was doing in the kitchen and made up fresh flour tortillas.

How to make 5 lb Nachos!

We all went to a birthday party yesterday. Well all of us except my eldest dd. She wanted to stay home. She missed out on some awesome nachos!

These Nachos were soooo good!! You want the recipe? It is simple!

Grab a plate and load it up with nacho cheese chips, warmed up cheese sauce, ground beef, beans, tomato, green onion, cilantro, lettuce, olives and sour cream.

Easy! I told my friend that Joe and I would just split a plate. (She was making the other plates smaller and she was like no, have your own plate.) I was like no it’s okay. I’d rather split a plate cause I had already hit the ruffles chips and onion dip. SO she went and made us this HUMONGOUS plate to share!! lol It doesn’t look that big in the picture but that plate is FULL of food and heaping high. lol It was great though!!

Chicken Taco Night

taco

Okay so I still had spanish rice and beans left over after making the enchilada freezer meals. I was thinking of chicken tacos and beans and rice but then I though a dry corn tortilla frozen then warmed up would get soggy. So I thought what about putting in beans and rice and chicken, the kids could microwave that and then all that would be left is to warm up some corn tortillas , add a little cheese and some salsa and we have another quick dinner!

..mmmmmm…this is the same recipe as the California Round Cake that I made earlier this month except I used all purpose flour instead of the wheat this time.

I also used the baking sheet this time instead of the round pans. It was really great. Even more awesome than last time.

I think maybe next time I will compromise and use half/half. It was so good I even went back for a second piece. It was melt in your delicious. We ate it warm. I managed to save dh the two last pieces so he can take to work soon.

This recipe is really great and you will love it.
