Project Description

My favorite food has always been Mexican, it doesn’t take much effort to talk me into changing dinner plans for Mexican food.  I could eat it every day and not be tired of it! This recipe is easy to throw together and a great one if you are feeding a larger crowd or a few people. This recipe makes a good amount of filling so if I am not feeding a a large crowd,  I will freeze some of the filling for another day.  This is a great thing to have as a back up in the freezer when you need a quick meal, you just thaw it out, stuff your taco shells, top with enchilada sauce and cheese and throw it in the oven.

When I have had to have a meal ready at the end of a busy day I will pop the filling in the crockpot and just throw it in the tortillas when I am ready to put it together. It really is such a simple meal and you add any other items you might like in this enchilada.

It can be made with flour shells but I prefer it with corn.  Each one gives a completely different taste.  When I am making 2 pans I will make one of each!  It is great served with a big bowl of chips and salsa, guacamole, rice and beans on the table. When I am making this more family style I will throw a roll of brown paper down the center of the table and dump the chips right on it with a bowl of salsa at either end. It’s a fun way to serve it up! This also becomes the centerpiece of the table so nothing else has to be done!
