By now you know that I am a Mexican food fanatic. It can be a bit of an obsession really. Since I live in a very small town in Western Washington my choices in restaurants that serve Mexican food are slim to none, especially if you want it to be good Mexican food. When Jessi and I were in Tacoma last year looking for Halloween costumes, we came across a tiny little Mexican market that also served food. We just about got whiplash because I turned the car into the driveway so quickly! We were both so excited to find a new place to try out. Well, it turns out that we shouldn't have been so excited. But Jessi was happy because she was able to get some Mexican soda and candies she hadn't had since we moved from San Diego to Washington.
Due to this lack of satisfaction with the choices I have been faced with, and my continued cravings, I am constantly trying to duplicate the wonderful foods of my past. As I have mentioned in past postings, Kevin doesn't exactly share my enthusiasm for my obsession. He is not a fan of burrito's, carne asada, tacos, etc. However one dish he does like is enchiladas in green sauce (chili verde). So you know I jumped on that right away. I had a way to calm my craving and make a meal that I knew Kevin would enjoy.
I took a little help from premade salsa on this one. I do want to create my own chili verde but there were no tomatillos in the store so I went for the next best thing. I will tell you that the best brand of salsa verde I have found is Herdez.
