Today is 11/11/11

The number 11 has been my favorite number for as long as I can remember.

So, today, I thought I would pair two of my favorites, my favorite number, 11,
and my favorite food, MEXICAN!

My son, Spencer, and I have this in common.  We could eat Mexican ALL the TIME!

This year for his birthday he requested my enchiladas.

They are super easy to make, and to be quite honest, I have never really followed a recipe?

So, this time, I wrote one as made them, so that I could share them with you!


paired with chips and guacamole, yum.


Sprinkle with cheddar cheese.

a good healthy pinch  of cheese will do it!

 Roll, Repeat, lining them seam side down in a 9×13 prepared pan.  


(you will have to squoosh them in to get them all to fit)

hard to believe something so simple with turn into bubbly cheese goodness!


piping hot out of the oven!

This is an easy recipe that is quick to make and always tastes great!

After dinner we enjoyed “Spencer’s Cake” — a cookies and cream ice cream cake.

    1. David, some of my older recipes don’t have that option. I created a new website about a year ago, and added the print recipe feature. I am slowly but surely getting through all of the posts and transferring them over. The easiest way to do this is to copy and paste to a doc and print. If you continue to have problems, message me and I will happily mail it to you. 🙂
