About me: I have always liked to cook, particularly breads, fruits, vegetables, vegetarian, poultry and lamb dishes. After marriage we cooked together progressively more difficult dishes with him doing the meat, grilling and frying, and I did the "dough" and the same type of things I had before. After children we started cooking more simply. After discovering the cause of my frequent migraines was an evolving long list of chemicals and odd ingredients, I began getting back to cooking from basic ingredients, and found I could be well again. I also try to cooking from what I can get in season at the ever present fruit and vegetable stands.

Chicken Enchiladas with Red Chili Sauce : page 162

The chicken thigh meat is perfect in this cheesy enchilada. You only use part of a can of pickeled jalapenos, and I freeze the rest for another batch. Today was the first time my corn tortillas were so tender I did not need to soften them in the oven and the resulting enchiladas reflected that tenderness, but very delicious. My go to recipe.
