Hello hello foodies and bloggies! Happy "mid week" to you. So one of the questions I get asked all the time is, "where do you get inspiration from when coming up with new recipes?" and my answer to that is, simply out of my own cravings I am having. So as you can see, last week I was craving something Mexican inspired and covered in enchilada sauce. This turned out so awesome, and totally has a "cheesy" feel to it. Its very kid friendly. If you love Chile Verde sauce (green sauce), go ahead and use that, but make sure it doesn't contain milk in it, as many do. This makes for some incredible leftovers too! Enjoy my friends!
