So there’s no ifs ands or buts about it – the thing that drew me in to try this recipe was the pictures on the website. Go check them out //here//. That cheese is so deliciously melty and the dish is so beefy and I just love Mexican food so I had to make this dish.
I had some extra jalapenos laying around so I minced one and added it with the onion. I did not use Old El Paso brand enchilada sauce though; I find it too salty for my tastes. I used the Frontera brand that’s in the pouch, because that’s my favorite. They are 8oz pouches, and I only used 2 pouches, and found that to be plenty of sauce. I simmered for a good long time so it reduced and thickened, and as I was stirring and salivating I was struck with an idea for a new recipe 😊 so recipe testing for that shall start soon!
That is probably my favorite thing about this #52NewEats project – it has really sparked my creativity with food!
I made this for dinner one night and we sure cleaned it up. Yes, between myself and my husband I think there was only about a bowlful left for him to take to work for lunch the next day. I did take the blogger’s advice and put a big fat dollop of sour cream in the middle (bc sour cream for life) and dotted it with some thinly sliced fresh jalapenos. I forgot to buy cilantro, but if I’d had some, that would have made a great topping.
This is definitely a great dish to have on hand for game day – and that season is fast approaching!!
