What I'm Eating
Tortilla Flat Enchiladas
How you can eat them, too:
Get a pasta bowl -- something about six inches in diameter and 3 inches deep.Have a nice lunch, breakfast, dinner, Super Bowl Snack, whatever.
Place a corn tortilla in the bowl.
Cut a slice off of a red onion. Dice the slice.
Put a fourth of the diced red onion on the tortilla.
Open a can of green chile enchilada sauce (I like Hatch or Maccayo brands -- you decide how spicy you like it).
Pour some sauce on the tortilla and onion.
Grate some cheddar cheese over the tortilla, onion and sauce (I prefer sharp cheddar -- you may not)
Put another corn tortilla on the pile and do it all again.
Continue until you have 4 layers of tortilla, diced onion, enchilada sauce, and cheese.
Cover with a plate and nuke it until the cheese melts and the tortillas are soft (that's about 2 minutes and 15 seconds in my microwave -- your mileage may vary)
When done, remove from microwave -- CAREFUL, IT'S HOT! -- uncover and eat.
It washes down well with some Four Peaks Amber or Railhead Red. Feel free to choose your own personal favorite beverage.
