What's cooking TGIFriday 12/10/10?

I have smoked ham hocks simmering for green split peas soup.

Any plans?

If I get off work in time, I'll make a meatloaf or maybe I'll just do up some oatmeal tonight.

I have a "chateaubriand" from that tough cow defrosted in the fridge. I'll try to think up some way of braising it.

Hello,

DH's company is having their annual Christmas Party, so it will just be me and kids for dinner. We all agreed on Chinese take out ... it's been a while, so I'm really looking forward to it.

Enjoy the day

First Time Enchiladas

I'm making enchiladas for the first time. I've checked out a bunch of recipes, but like my own idea better.

I'm going to use browned ground beef, ground pork and onion with stewed tomatoes and taco seasoning. (My basic taco meat mixture.)

I'll roll 'em with a little bit of canned enchilada sauce, and a little shredded cheddar in flour tortillas and bake in a casserole with canned enchilada sauce on bottom and top with extra shredded cheddar.

I plan to cook them until the tortillas get a little browned around the edges.

The remaining taco meat mixture will probably be used to make chili. If I decide I really like the flavor of the enchilada sauce, I may add it or some of it to the chili.

If there isn't enough taco meat mixture left, I'll just make a couple of hard shell tacos. I'm sure I'll have enough for at least one meal.

I'd appreciate any suggestions or ideas for improvement, cooking times and temp. TIA

Zhizara - I think your recipe idea sounds great. Do let us know how they come out. I love enchiladas, but have never made them, so your recipe might be my inspiration to make them.
