Had to blog about these three together because I made them together and they were delicious!
Pinto Beans- so yummy! This was my first time to cook real beans and we loved them. I cooked them the night before for about 3 1/2 hours, stored them in the fridge, added a bit more water the next day and heated them up again- delicious!
Cornbread- I think my cast iron skillet might be bigger than the one she uses for this b/c ours was thinner and turned brown quickly- The taste was yummy, though.
Enchiladas- I usually make an enchilada casserole- but decided I would do it the real way this time- I wasn't so sure about the black olives in the mixture, but went ahead and did it- I don't think they added anything and it made a couple of my guests turn up their noses- I will leave them out next time- but the flavor of the mixture with the green chiles was yummy! I did put "enchilada seasoning" ( I already had it in the pantry) on the meat as I was cooking it and I think it helped give more flavor.
We're a group of ladies in need of a little excitement and inspiration in tackling the awesome and sometimes overwhelming job of cooking for our families. The plan is to cook through a book from cover to cover-blogging about it and sharing our successes, and sometimes failures, with each other along the way.
