We had some not-so-fresh flour tortillas in the fridge, so I decided to make enchiladas. I love to make enchiladas because they are easy to throw together and they are tasty. I grabbed some Old El Paso enchilada sauce, a can of black olives, some chopped red onions, cheddar cheese, a spice mixture I mixed up, and made enchiladas.
I have made many batches of enchiladas, but the best ones I have ever made were the exploding enchiladas. It is worth your time to click on the link and read the story/see the photo. Those particular enchiladas were the most delicious enchiladas I have ever made.
This particular batch was mediocre. The tortillas were sorta stale, so they didn’t roll as easily as fresh ones would. I ran out of cheese, so they didn’t have the normal, delicious layer of cheese on top. Also, my spice mixture is simply hot paprika, white pepper, cayenne pepper, chili powder, and garlic powder. I sprinkle the mixture inside the enchiladas and on the top of the whole thing. It gives the dish a kick.
Here is a photo of me and tonight’s enchiladas. This is the outfit I wore to work and would have been the outfit I would have worn tonight to the Robyn Hitchcock concert, had it not been canceled for this evening. Also featured, my cat Isabella and my frog potholders.
I hope you are all doing well. Have a great day and keep cooking!
