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!”

La Casita Mexican Restaurant

This place is soooo good! I think my absolute favorite kind of food is mexican food. I can cook it pretty well myself. We do beans, brown spanish rice, warmed corn tortillas with chicken, cheese and salsa. Sometimes we make enchiladas or quesidillas.

But there is just something so wonderful about going out and being bad. Being bad as in you are probably going to eat an entire days worth of calories in one meal. Why? Cause there is SO much yummy food!

You get there and of course you are hungry. Why else would you be there. You had a light breakfast cause you know you are going out to lunch. lol
You get there and they bring menus and tortilla chips and the best salsa you even tasted in your life. And boy is it hot. You start gulping down that Pepsi. I order pepsi and so does Joe. DD gets milk.

The pepsi is sweet, but you don’t care. That salsa is hot! My dd goes to dip her chip in the salsa and I tell her not to. The salsa is *spicy HOT*, not just *hot*, so just eat the chips. She gives me a funny look, like she is missing out on something.

“But I am HUNGRY”, she whines.

“Me too! Save some chips for me.”

Joey is also busy whoofing down chips and before you know it they ask if they should bring more. Yes please do! Our dd begins to ask questions about every single picture and artifact on the wall. I actually knew who was in one of the pictures, Brad Pitt.

I guess he eats here too. The food is THAT good! All of these pictures I took at the restaurant.

Beef enchiladas w rice & beans

I order a beef enchilada with beans and rice. $5.99. I also order a beef ala carte. $2.00. If I had ordered all that as a “meal”, it was priced at $10.50! Where is the deal in that? Even more surprising the kids meals are $6.95! That cost more than my enchilada plate. She is only 4, she can share our food, believe me Joey is getting ready to order plenty!

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.

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!
