Tex-Mex Enchiladas

It’s Mexican night in la casa Bennett. Actually, its Mexican night almost every night at our house, but that’s what you get when you grow up in San Antonio. We could eat it every day and never get tired of it. To add a little bit of variation to our usual taco night we decided to go enchiladas! What a wonderful decision! These are so good. So easy. Who knew making your own enchilada sauce was such a cinch?
