Oh, I agree - it's hard to pick just one!! Can I submit one for me and one for mom? I love the WikiTree cookbook idea!
1 Lg Onion, chopped, 2 lg cloves garlic, crushed, 1 tbl chili powder, 1 tbl oil, 1 (28 oz) can tomatoes undrained, 1 (15 oz) can tomato sauce, 1 ts cumin, 1 ts oregano, 12 (6") corn tortillas, 1/8 ts salt and pepper, 1 1/2 c cheddar, shredded, 1 1/2 c monteray jack, shredded. Serve with: sour cream, shredded lettuce, olives, guacamole.
Saute onions, garlic and chili powder in the oil on medium heat. Add tomatoes, tomato sauce, cumin, oregano and simmer about 15 minutes. While sauce is simmering, heat oil in a skillet and dip each tortilla in the oil briefly, just to soften. Let tortillas cool! Dip each tortilla in the tomato sauce mixture and put on a plate. Put a little of your enchilada sauce/tomato sauce mixture on the bottom of a baking dish. Fill each with some of the cheese and roll up, put into a 9 x 13 baking dish. After they are all in the pan, add the remaining sauce over them and sprinkle with cheese and sliced olives if desired. Bake at 350 degrees for about 15 minutes, until the sauce is simmering in the baking dish and the cheese looks melted.
I love hot and spicy food, but this sweeter version of enchiladas is one of my favorites! I cook beef in taco seasoning in the crockpot overnight if I'm making them for dad, so he has beef enchiladas. Both are yummy!
With four daughters a chocolate recipe was a must! Her answer was no-bake chocolate cookies. Quick and easy to make:
2 c Sugar, 1/2 c Milk, 1 cube Butter, 3 Tbl Cocoa, 1 ts Salt
Mix all of those in a pan and bring to a boil. Gather the rest of the ingredients:
3 c Raw Quick Oats, 1 ts Vanilla, 1/2 c Nuts, 1 c Coconut
When the sugar mixture boils remove from heat and stir in the rest of the ingredients. Drop onto wax paper. Let set up, eat and enjoy!
