Although you can purchase ready made enchilada sauce at the grocer’s, it is helpful to know how to make it yourself for those times you can’t get to the store. It is easy to prepare, tastes great, stores in the fridge for up to a week and even freezes well. It also isn’t only for enchiladas. I use it when making other recipes too when I’m looking for a tomato sauce with a bit of zip, like with my beef and bean burritos. If you make the sauce in advance, just be sure to warm it before adding it to your recipe. Read more of this post

Refried Beans [RECIPE]

Is it possible to serve Mexican food without a big pot of refried beans (aka frijoles)? Well, I guess it’s possible, but not recommended! Not only are they delicious, but they’re nutritious and a great source of fiber too. Plus, they just mix well with a side of Mexican Rice and the left overs are perfect stuffed inside a great big burrito. Best part is, they are easy to make and you can let them cook away while you get other things done. So stop buying that stuff in a can, and make up a batch today! Read more of this post
