here's his amuse bouche: minced shallot and chopped chives mixed with sour cream and a piece of red snapper:
it was freakin' delicious!! lol.
here's the snapper (with garlic, lemon, s&p, lemon thyme, and pineapple sage) ready to be folded up:

dw made baked spuds and steamed stringbeans to round it out. sorry, no fianl shots. we were too hungry.
looking at that tom i reckon i'd eat the aluminium foil too!
brilliant that you encourage your son to cook & he's interested too.mum taught bolas & i to cook at the same time she was teaching us to read....another step on the road to independence...well done mate

Hi, Jessica. I don't know where you are, but if you have access to a Trader Joe's, they have a wonderful bottled prepared enchilada sauce. Las Palmas brand is pretty good, too. Enchiladas are one of those things like meat loaf or potato salad, I don't really have an exact recipe. I don't make a sauce from scratch - too labor intensive and the last time I did, I didn't care for it.

I usually use flour tortillas, it's not 'authentic' as far as enchiladas go, but they hold up much better. And I like to use a blend of sharp cheddar and monterey jack cheese for the filling, and to sprinkle on top. You can add some shredded chicken or beef in your filling, if you like.

Warm the tortillas in the microwave until they are pliable, dip them in the sauce, put some filling in there, roll them up and put them in the casserole dish seam side down. Pour a little more enchilada sauce on top, more cheese, and reheat at 350 just 'til heated through - everything is cooked already, you don't want to heat them for more than 10-15 min.

Take them out of the oven and sprinkle some green onions on top - you can also top with some chopped olives and cilantro, if you like.
