Hi guys. How’s your day going? I’m having a great day but I need to ask you all an important question? Are you a Mexican food lover as much as me? I’m seriously obsessed with it. It’s pretty sad because I could eat it every single night. No joke. There’s just something about the taste and flavor that I love. I love that one night you can eat tacos, then the next you can have fajitas or enchiladas. The list can go on and on.

There are just so many different options. Add in some chips, salsa and guacamole and you’re in heaven. See there are just so many different ways to eat Mexican food. I never get sick of it. I do feel kinda bad for my family. They get sick of eating it all the time. So I decided for two weeks I wouldn’t make any type of Mexican food. I would have them detox from it and cook anything but Mexican food.

I was miserable with out my fix, but I told myself that I would make them miss it. Hehe. Plus I went to our local taco shop when every one was at work/school. Shh our secret k. Guess what happened after 2 week? Yep you guessed right. They were begging me to make them some good old Mexican food. Ha! Jokes on you family. I knew they would miss it just as much as I did. 🙂 I wanted to make something new and decided these Beef & Potato Enchiladas would be a hit!!

    Julie,
    Your recipes are all so yummy. I have a question. For your beef and potato enchilada you listed two cans of enchilada sauce. I have tried a couple of brands from the store and they were terrible. Any suggestions and brands that are tasty or an easy quick enchilada sauce recipe? Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated.
    Thanks…Carra

      Hi Carra,
      I actually just started using Sprouts brand of enchilada sauce and it’s really good. I recommend trying that one. Thanks!!
