A Friday Dinner: Homemade Enchiladas


¬†So we thought we would give enchiladas a try! This turned out to be a cultural experience our children won’t easily forget! Needless to say, Mama added much chili pepper to the homemade sauce, Papa played Spanish music on his Spanish guitar, and the children swore they could never eat Spanish or Mexican food again! Next time, less chili powder.

How to make the dish?

STEP ONE: Fry the tortilla for a few seconds on an iron skillet. Then dip the tortilla in hot homemade enchilada sauce. We used canned tomato sauce and added chili powder and cumin.

STEP TWO: Place the dipped tortilla on a cutting board and fill it with desired ingredients. This was a Friday, so we added cheddar and garden chives (common and garlic). Roll the tortilla and place it in a baking dish, crease side down.



STEP 3:  Continue steps 1-2 until the pan is full. Pour remaining sauce over the enchiladas and sprinkle with cheese.

STEP FOUR: Bake at 350 degrees Fahrenheit until bubbly (about 20 minutes).

SIDE DISHES: Sour Cream, Refried Beans, Refried Rice!
