It's Mexican Monday! For dinner tonight--->Enchiladas!
I have a final in my Spanish class tomorrow, so I figured a Mexican meal would be a good replacement for studying. When it comes to learning languages, I don't really believe you can "cram" for a test. You either know it or you don't. I've kept up with all of the homework and assignments the whole semester, so I'm not too worried about the test. It's not that I couldn't spend the whole night studying, it's just that cooking is more fun :)
I don't really have a recipe for enchiladas and these aren't the most authentic enchiladas ever, but they were super tasty. For the filling I diced red pepper, yellow pepper, onion, and jalapenos. I also defrosted some frozen corn. While I was dicing away, I baked two chicken breasts seasoned with a little salt and pepper at 375* for 30 minutes.
Saute everything together in a large skillet. Add one can of diced tomatoes. Usually, I like to use fresh tomatoes, but tonight I took some help from the store.

I finished the meal with a side of 90 second Spanish rice. It's not the prettiest plate, but what it lacks in aesthetics, it makes up for in flavor.
Dinner + Movie is a very standard Monday for Lupe and I. It's a great way to start a busy week. I hope everyone has a great night :)
