ENCHILADA LOVE OVER HERE!
Simply take a look at these appeals. So gorgeous, so tasty, so healthy, so amazing. I remain in love!
This dish all began with an ended jar of enchilada sauce.
You see, I had prepared on making some enchiladas for supper just recently, and so I went to the store to buy some enchilada sauce. Since, you know, I was too lazy to make my own.
I came home, ready to get down to service, and that’s when I saw that the enchilada sauce that I JUST BOUGHT was expired. By 3 months!
That’s what I get for trying to go the simple route.
After a fit of rage occurred (not really, but kinda sorta yes it’s true), I took some deep breaths and decided to simply make my routine enchilada sauce. I wanted enchiladas too bad to provide up on the entire operation.
After THAT circumstance was managed, I got to deal with the filling for these enchiladas. I just used a couple of veggies I had in my refrigerator. When they were done cooking, I then sprinkled some incredibly yum cashew cream on top, sprayed pretty things on top (due to the fact that I like quite food), and stuffed my face.
Totally unconcerned to the terrible enchilada sauce experience I ‘d simply had. These things are GOOD since DAMN.
