These did NOT agree with me
--Enchiladas


Enchiladas
Our Favorite Meats Copyright MCMLXVI

3 tbsp. flour
4 tsp. chili powder
3 tbsp. oil
2 c. water
1 lb. hamburger
½ c. chopped onion
1 tsp. salt
¼ tsp. pepper
½ tsp. garlic salt
1 lb. grated Cheddar cheese I used Monterey Jack cheese
12 tortillas

Brown flour and chili powder in oil. Gradually stir in water; simmer for 30 minutes (I added some cayenne, cumin and salt). Brown hamburger and onion. Season with salt, pepper and garlic salt. Dip tortillas in sauce until softened. Fill center of tortilla with meat and cheese; roll and place in baking dish. Sprinkle remaining cheese over top. Pour sauce over enchiladas. Bake at 350 degrees until cheese is melted. Serve hot.

Yield: 4 servings

There was really nothing wrong with these. The sauce was a bit bland but I added some things to spice it up. They ended up rather delicious actually but I really paid for them later on. I don't know what it was and they only seemed to have that effect on me.

I chose this recipe because I only needed some tortillas and cheese to make it. I've learned my lesson and I don't think I'll be making anything this heavy for a while!

I have to make a cake tonight. I have when I have to do anything, when it comes to cooking. I really want to do it but I'm just running low on energy this week. If I don't have a post tomorrow, I just got overwhelmed, that's all.

Blast From The Past: Chicken Enchiladas from October 2006 - my favorite enchiladas. I was actually going to make those but I came across this recipe while I was looking for something to make with ground beef.

Question of the Day: Are there any foods that you avoid because you know you'll pay for them later?

Oh my!! Hope you feel better ASAP. I know that every time I eat Indian food I'll be paying for it for a couple of days. Pizza, ice cream & most dairy products make me queasy for a couple of hours...

I made enchilada's too. I guess we're on the same cooking wavelength again.

I've found recently I can't eat after about 8pm or I really pay for it the next morning. I've also recently given up chips for the same reason (which, actually, isn't a bad thing, though I do miss them).
