In my family when we were having enchiladas you knew it was going to be a good time. It was going to be a fun-filled night of cooking and laughing. This recipe came from my mom’s best friend and we called her Aunt T. When I was little I would sit in the kitchen and watch them laugh and cook, and this by far was always the best meal.
The older I got the more my mom wanted me to learn how to cook and this was one of the first things she taught me how to cook. This recipe brings back lots of memories I got to spend with my mom in the kitchen. We would always hand roll each one, and at the end, she would let me lick the spoon. Looking back I cherish the time I spent in the kitchen with my mom now that she is gone. I’m glad that I have this special recipe that I can share with my kids someday.
