|Saturday Spotlight #17|
Today my Saturday Spotlight is shining on Mexican food, in honor of Cinco de Mayo.
Cinco de Mayo, literally translated, means “5th of May.” Although it is not a celebration of Mexican Independence day, Cinco de Mayo is a holiday celebrating a victory the Mexican army had over the French.
Today I am sharing an enchilada recipe that is perfect for a Cinco de Mayo party, a pot luck, or an easy family meal.
I lived in Spain for a number of years, so many people assume that I know a lot about Mexican cooking. The two cuisines are really quite different, but I love both. I have discovered a number of good Mexican recipes over the years.
Many years ago I got the idea for this dish from a recipe on the side of a bag of Kraft cheese! I have added quite a few more ingredients, and changed the method quite a bit however, so it now hardly resembles the original recipe. My guests have always enjoyed it - and I hope that you like it as well!
