Cinco De Mayo!

I'm going to try also to post new recipes when I try them, pictures, and the like. It'll be a way to share them with you, and also for me to keep track of them! In honor of Cinco de Mayo, we are going to have a Mexican Fiesta tonight!

Bean and Cheese Enchiladas with homemade salsa:

Spread refried beans on 8 tortillas (you can use store-bought or homemade...we are using store-bought tonight for time purposes). Sprinkle shredded colby jack cheese, and if you choose roasted red peppers over the beans (we will make some both ways). Roll the tortillas and line them up in a 9x13 baking dish.

To make the homemade salsa: Blend one can of diced tomatoes, 1 tablespoon diced jalapeno peppers (seeds removed), 1/4 cup diced onion OR 1 tbsp onion powder, dash of garlic, one tbsp lime juice, and 1 tsp ground cumin. Allow to sit for 30 minutes before serving.

Pour salsa over enchiladas and sprinkle with cheese. Cover with foil and bake for 20-25 minutes. Remove foil and bake 5 minutes more. Serve with sour cream and guacamole.
