After my bean fiasco the other night when I made ribs and cornbread, I was left with so many beans it was disgusting.
I decided to do a quick shopping trip at a store I don’t usually go to after work to grab up a few ingredients to male some enchiladas. I am a great eater of enchiladas, but I’d never made them.
My thoughts were as follows:
It can’t be too hard to make.
The ingredients should be fairly cheap and easy to find.
One pack of 12 corn tortillas won’t make that much food, we might be hungry later.
I stopped in at one of the local Johnnie’s, which I usually avoid cause they seem to be more expensive than necessary, and have a deceivingly small selection of “ethnic foods” but after a long sweaty day at work, I hardly ever have the patience for the circus that is Market Basket.
Tom sauce, green chilis, corn tortillas, I seriously only had beans and a desire to eat enchiladas… I should try to plan meals around the foods I already have in the pantry. Really should.
More focus while cooking leads to fewer mistakes.
Enchiladas are slippery muthas. Damn.
Use proper sized pans. Even if it means more dishes later.
That was a LOT of food.
Could’ve been spicier.
Roux when done wrong looks like cat vomit.
