Since we are working on eating down the pantry I decided we'd give these a try.
All the ingredients were staple items except for the sausage which I had in the freezer.
Cheese (will shred)
Dried onion (1/4 cup)
Dried bell pepper (1/4 cup)
tomato sauce (8 ounces)
rice (I cooked one cup dry)
a jar of my red beans (approx 4 cups?)
taco seasoning (I did to taste -- add to beans and to sauce.)
corn tortillas (I used 20)
corn starch (couple tablespoons)
sausage crumbles (a little over a cup)
My tortillas tore some until I got the hang of it, but still perfectly edible.
The smallest pan is for daughter's supper tonight.
She will not eat tomato sauce in any form, so I'll make a bit of cheese sauce to go on hers.
The second glass pan contains six and will have the sauce and shredded cheese on top for hubby and me.
The back pan contains ten more, which I will flash freeze.
Once I put them in a freezer bag I'll add a container of half of the enchilada sauce and a small bag of shredded cheese so that I can have a quick meal on hand.
I had just a bit of the filling mixture left and I added it to the sauce.
I also added the onion and bell pepper (rehydrated well) to the sauce
since daughter didn't want onions in hers.
Hubby and I will get the same flavor just on the outside instead of the inside....no big deal.
I did add slightly more taco seasoning than her recipe called for, but we like the
On other side notes -- we are completely out of bread flour...both white and fresh ground at this point.
Thank goodness I am picking up a few supplies this weekend.
We've also managed to use up several other things that are staples in our house
so I'll be making a trip to Sam's Club to pick up a few things.
Also, my family loved the potato soup last night so much that they ate it all!
I didn't end up with two meals worth, but that is how life goes sometimes.
