I've got to try these. I marked them with a star in my Google Reader.

My dad makes enchiladas in a very similar fashion, only he starts with a chili base (no canned enchilada sauce) so it's pretty time consuming. I'm always requesting them for birthdays and holidays. Our family is German descendent but his parents grew up in south Texas where Mexican food is king!

This is our exact enchilada recipe. We have them all the time, but that doesn't stop us from always requesting them for birthdays, holidays, Saturdays, LOL
Good stuff!

I have to say yes I do know the recipe by heart. I just hate that my husband doesn't eat mexican. Sarah and I might have to make some for ourselves. For those of you who think you might try this recipe, just know that these enchiladas are amazing!!! What a great recipe to have handed down. I have a few, but the majority of mine come from Paula Deen.

I found your blog through Morgan Moore's. Wow all I can say Crystal is that you are an amazing person. You are a wonderful mom, and seem like such a warm and caring person. I am very sorry that you have lost your sister. I myself do not have siblings, but my dear cousin who is like a sister lost her own sister 5 years ago.It was hard enough losing a cousin, but I know through my cousin how heartbreaking it is to lose a sibling. Anyway I enjoy reading your updates. Your baby girls are absolutley adorable. I love that you crochet. My mother in law taught me, well actually I only know how to make one kind of blanket... but that is a start. I printed your tutorial on a tote bag, because I have a new sewing machine I need to start using. Well God Bless you and your wonderful family!!! Brianna

And for those who don't like hamburger meat, this same recipe can be made with shredded pork, beef, or chicken. Just takes more prep time to make the meat (if you aren't using leftovers)--since I was a working mom, and money was usually tight, we always made it with hamburger.

To make with beef, pork, or chicken, rub meat (boneless pork roast, boneless chuck roast, or skinned chicken) with ground cumin, onion powder, and garlic powder, then slow cook all day with maybe 1/4 cup water in bottom. Remove meat and shred, add a splash of enchilada sauce to moisten, then continue recipe using shredded meat in place of ground beef.

Have fun at your get-together, sweetie!!

Daniel LOVES enchiladas but I have yet to find a truly great recipe. I am SO excited to try yours! It sounds amazing!

What a treasure those recipes must be. My mom did something similar, but on a much smaller scale, for my wedding shower.

Hope you are doing good!
