I had a photo shoot yesterday. It included me, my camera, and some re-heated enchiladas. I laughed today when I thought about it, but I am really struggling with getting good photos at night when I do my baking and cooking. We are coming up on the winter months where my daylight will nearly diminish and all I will be left with are the yellow lights of my kitchen. What is you best night time photo advice?
Anyways, I thought the enchiladas did great in the shoot and tasted awesome the night before and again for lunch today. I love good leftovers, especially when its super cold in my office!
I have been eying every one's enchilada dishes lately and really been itching to make my own. I knew the hubbie would like this recipe because he is always craving Stokes green chile sauce, which I can't find anywhere in TX, but found a nice alternative.
Green Chile Beef Enchiladas
1 pound lean ground beef
1 packet taco seasoning
1/2 cup onion, chopped
1 cup frozen corn
1/2 cup sour cream
1 4.5 ounce can chopped green chiles
2 cups shredded colby-jack cheese
1 10 ounce can green chile enchilada sauce
6 large flour tortillas
Preheat oven to 350 degrees. In a large skillet over medium heat, cook ground beef and onion till browned. Drain beef and onions, add in taco seasoning and required water per package directions and simmer till water has soaked into beef mixture. Add corn and cook for additional 3 minutes or until corn is thawed. Stir in sour cream, green chiles, and 1 cup of shredded cheese.
Spray a 13x9 pan with nonstick spray, then spread 1/4 cup of enchilada sauce on the bottom of the dish. Using a flat surface lay out tortilla and spread 2 tbsp of enchilada sauce in the middle, then 2/3 cup of the beef mixture. Roll tortilla up and lay seam side down in prepared pan. Repeat with remaining tortillas and beef. Pour remaining enchilada sauce over tortillas and top with remaining shredded cheese. Cover with a sheet of nonstick foil and bake for 40-45 minutes or until thoroughly heated.
Serve with sour cream, salsa, lettuce, yellow rice, beans....the list goes on and on.
I bet you are wondering what that is...he's the pimp cup we bought on our last trip to Hawaii. Gotta love em!
