So much to be said about two of my favorite words.
I could live off of Mexican Food for every meal for the rest of my life and die one happy girl. Enchiladas may be one of my favorite ways to enjoy it. Sometimes though, the process can be long. Stuffing and rolling each enchilada is not hard at all, but why not make it easier?! I am all about easy recipes and this one is not only easy but is DELICIOUS!
My husband ate half the pan by himself! He wanted me to be sure and tell all of you that he LOVED this dinner and it was deemed to make the “hubby favorites” list.
