Ah, enchiladas. Arguably, the most attractive looking food out there...I mean, just look at that pic! Obviously, I am being very sarcastic, but I still have yet to figure out how to make (Americanized) enchiladas look attractive. The jalapeno cream sauce is good enough to eat with a spoon and these enchiladas are smothered in it. I was so excited and happy to try enchiladas with steak in them as the protein because typically...it's chicken enchiladas that I make because those enchiladas are almost always with green sauce and not red sauce. I'm not big on beef and red sauce enchiladas.
