Pizza Enchiladas

A few weeks ago, when Cliff and I were in Santa Monica, we ate at a Mexican restaurant. My go to when ordering mexican food is enchiladas. Always plain cheese; no meat or veggies, and always with red sauce. Never green. Never. Except for that one time in the Mexico City airport when I was dying of hunger and requested roja and got verde. And even then, I refused to eat them. I just stayed hungry for another 5 hours. But back to my story. Plain cheese enchiladas with red sauce. I ordered my usual and when I got them I took a bite and the first thing that came to mind was pizza. Now, it had been at least a week since I had eaten pizza, which is like unheard of. So either my taste buds were really craving pizza or their enchilada sauce was very similar to pizza sauce. We may never know.

But one good thing came of that experience. When I said that my enchiladas tasted like pizza Cliff immediately thought: pizza enchiladas! Genius-right? I mean, why not? Its really just pizza in a different form. You can never consume pizza in too many ways. Pizza quesadillas are all over the place, why not pizza enchiladas? In case you are wondering, both pizza quesadillas and pizza enchiladas are wonderful! For our pizza enchiladas we decided to use pepperoni, green pepper, and black olives. You could really use any combination though. Mushrooms, sausage, onions, spinach, any of those would be great. These were super easy, tasted great, and reheated well. In my book, winners all the way!

    Brilliant! Reminds me of The Simpsons episode where Moe asks the waiter for the most expensive item, stuffed with the second most expensive item, which was Lobster stuffed with Tacos.

    Where am I going with this? Pizza and Enchiladas is a great combo.
