10 Enchilada Recipes

enchilada recipes

My husband’s all time favorite thing to eat that I make are enchiladas. Whenever I used to try a new recipe, I would ask him how he liked it and I usually got an answer that went something like this: “It’s fine, but I like enchiladas better.”

In an effort to find something else the guy went nuts for, I started asking him how each meal compared to enchiladas. I would say, “Ok, 10 being enchiladas, what number is this meal?” And he would then reply, “an 8 or 9”.

That simple answer tells me a the new recipe is worth keeping! I obviously know nothing is going to satisfy him the way enchiladas does, but him telling me how close or far he is from satisfaction is exactly the answer I need.

Today I decided to share 10 enchilada recipes- look how delicious these look!!!
