I don’t cook Mexican food often. When I do, my kitchen looks like it has been run over by a semi-truck. But oh my, it is worth every bit of messiness I created! Everytime I make Enchiladas, Eric says, “I don’t know why we ever go out for Mexican food. The best enchiladas in town are made in your kitchen.”
We have a little Mexican restaurant we really enjoy. We go there a lot, as in they know our names. The bonus is they have outside dining so we can take the girls.
They are such well behaved little girls. They also like chips and salsa. On the weekends we like to munch. Sir Streusel doesn’t get to snack while he is traveling so we normally have one night while he is home that we ‘snack for supper.’ We love nachos so I thought I would try to recreate our favorite nachos from our little Mexican restaurant.
I love enchiladas, love them. I love pasta. Combine the two and I am one happy girl. I had a craving for enchiladas but didn’t want to go through the whole process of making them. Mainly because I didn’t want to clean up the mess required to make enchiladas. I did have a box of jumbo shells in the pantry and I can make any meal with those babies.
In our home, we like flavor, lots of flavor. We also like Mexican food, lots of Mexican food. I love cheese, all cheese all the time. Although this isn’t a Native Mexican dish, it has that Mexican flavor that we love. This dish has pasta, chicken, flavor, cheese, and crunchy tortilla chips. I mean, what else could you want people?! Sir Streusel never knows what type of dish I am going to place in front of him. He rarely gets the same thing twice. He has told me he feels as if he is eating in a restaurant every night and is ordering the daily special. I took it as a compliment and shoved his plate in front of him. Well, this plate was a winner. Score one for dear Edna! It comes together fast with basic ingredients. Prepare this for your family. Tell them it’s the daily special. Then shove their plates in front of them. I promise, they will smile!
