Enchiladas con Pollo
Phewwwww! This was one of the hottest, hardest, intricately made dishes I've created in a while. Mostly, it was due to the fact that the tortillas are a complicated matter. Sure, it's easy enough toasting tortillas up for tacos or something but when you get to dipping them in some enchilada sauce... things get messy and difficult.
I had to first find the right consistency for the tortilla dough (I don't like recipes so I just winged it). Next, it was on to toasting and frying those suckers up. This is probably the most heart UNhealthy meals I've had in a long time. The tortillas, after being dipped in sauce, were fried in lard. Yep, lard! Mmmmm. Feel those arteries clogging up already. It was delicious! I try not to eat unhealthy all the time but cutting corners to have an amazing meal sure does make anyones mood better somedays.
To go with the enchiladas I made spanish rice and some tomatillo salsa (or salsa verde for those who know it as that). Put the salsa on top of the chicken I sautéed with some queso fresco and BAM!! You have one fine meal. A friend of mine gave me the recipe and I thought that since today was a moon day that I would take all my energy that I didn't expend doing yoga and instead make a delicious dinner for my husband and my in-laws :).
Definitely worth the two trips to Wal-Mart! Yeah. Now it's time for bed though. I know I haven't been keeping up on this blog lately but I'll get the recipe for this dish up soon as well as an update on my practice. As for now.....
