Josh and I have lived in South Texas our whole lives. Which means we’re used to two major things. The heat and great Mexican food. Even our move to North Texas for school meant Mexican food that wasn’t quite up to par with our hometown.
Well, you can imagine how I felt when I realized that our planned move to Oregon would mean a serious decline in the authenticity of my Mexican food! A challenge!!! I am going to be working on honing in the skills needed to make my favorite meals up north.
So, yesterday, I whipped up some Enchiladas Verdes. (Recipe adapted from All Recipes.com) With chicken, queso fresco, and an amazing verde salsa, this dish made my confidence spike! It was delicious! The general consensus was that the salsa was a bit on the spicy side (which is ironic because I only added 2 of the 5 required serrano peppers!!) but other than that it tasted authentic and amazing!
I served up these babies with a sprinklin’ of queso fresco and cilantro and had Pomegranate Acai Margaritas to drink. (They were the Daily’s Frozen pouches. Have you tried these? Amazing!!)
What have you been cooking up lately? Do you stick to a meal rotation? Experiment a lot? Or both? What’s your favorite recipe?
