Homemade Mexican Goodness

Tonight I had a taste for Mexican. I  could eat Mexican every night! I made creamy enchiladas and homemade tortilla chips. I found the recipe off www.eatbetteramerica.com. I love this site because its full of great healthy recipes. They take recipes and make changes to make them healthier.

I liked the enchiladas but I think it needed little something else. Like more green chilies or chili powder. Topped with avocado and tomatoes made it pretty yummy!

I’m not real sure sure how long I cooked these for. The first batch was a little chewing but second batch I cooked for a little longer  were perfect!

  1. I have got to make some of those homemade tortillas chips. That is such a healthy alternative to deep fried processed chips!
