We’ve talked about me and Mexican food right?  Here with these easy homemade tortillas and tortilla chips pretty much anywhere I can squeeze in a spare minute to talk about my obsession with tacos and refried beans and cheesy Mexicany goodness.  There’s just something about the cumin and the garlic and the spicy cayenne that’s just so comforting to me.  Can I get an amen?

So when a reader asked me the other week why I didn’t have more Mexican food recipes up on the blog I paused and then I frowned and then I scratched my head, mortified to realize that save for my tortillas and chips I had NO Mexican recipes up on this here blog.  How is that possible you ask?!  Your guess is as good as mine and from the bottom of my little taco-loving heart I am so sorry to have deprived you of some of my favorite, go-to Mexican dishes for so long.  Truly.

Even though enchiladas are some assembly required they’re still so stinkin’ simple.  Especially if you stick whatever meat you want into the slow cooker to gently have a fiesta while you’re at work.  Or you pick up a roasted chicken from the deli section at the store {that’s generally what I do!} Then all you have to do is assemble them and stick them in the oven for the cheese to melt and you’re done!

Spend your time wisely while the cheese is melting by making some cilantro lime rice!
