Tara’s Tidbits®

The mild enchilada sauce and salsa in this recipe give it a traditional Mexican taste with just a touch of spice. To spice it up even more, use medium or hot enchilada sauce and salsa. You can also add a can or two of chopped green chilies. More color, more spice, and even more delicious!
