potato, mushroom, spinach enchiladas* and other stuff










this is a super easy enchilada recipe and i can slip mushrooms in and larry doesn't mind. 
here's how i make them...


i microwave a large potato and while it's cooking i saute sliced mushrooms with a bunch of spinach.  then i add the cooked, diced potatoes and season the mixture with chili powder, salt, pepper and red pepper flakes.  then i add about a cup of green enchilada sauce and let it reduce a bit.

in a separate pan i quickly heat the corn tortillas in vegetable oil one at a time.  i pour some enchilada sauce in the bottom of a baking pan and put a dollop of the mixture into each tortilla and roll them up.  after they are all lined up in the baking pan i pour the rest of the green sauce over the top and pop them into the oven until they are crunchy and brown.  this is not an exact science.  you can substitute vegetables, beans or rice, whatever you have on hand will taste good with the green sauce and baked. 
i normally garnish the top with avocado slices or guacamole but i forgot to add it before i took the picture. 

a spinach and orange salad compliments it really well.

happy cinco de mayo!

*no animals were harmed making these enchiladas




larry took this photo of me saturday before a picnic.
i was inspired by this photo...



i wonder if ron galella took this?
i just watched the movie
 smash the camera
which is all about him and his relentless stalking of jackie and other celebrities.  you can love him or hate him but without him we wouldn't have many of the gorgeous photos of jackie that we all love.
the movie is available on netflix instant watch.
i thought it was fascinating.

 





in case you were wondering...





the roses are still doing their thang.

  8. I thought we'd eat outside on the porch tonight - the enchiladas would be the perfect meal. You're the only one I know who could photograph an enchilada so well! :)

    You got the Jackie thing going on anyway...no wonder you were inspired. Jackie in a rose cottage...xo

  10. I'm going to call this a "postpourri" today. A little bit of everything.

    The enchiladas sound great. I think sweet potato would be great too. I think I'll make them for dinner tomorrow night for friends....and a little sangria.

    Gracias, Janita!

  17. Hi Janet,

    The enchiladas look very tasty and your look is very chic. What is it about white jeans? I must make sure I wear mine more this spring.

    I married my 1st husband twenty-seven years ago today. (and no we didn't plan it that way on purpose) Every year I am reminded of a marriage that probably shouldn't have happened! But at least I got my daughter out of that union and my 2nd marriage more than made up for the 1st one. :)

  21. So few women look slim and stylish a pair of white pants/jeans, myself being one such woman who does not. You wear them so well!

    What shoes did you end up wearing? Black loafers? Red sandals?

  22. A couple days ago it was chilly here for a spring day, so I wore a pair of white jeans and a black cotton turtleneck. Felt perfectly wonderful--And if I looked HALF as good as you that day, I would be extremely pleased.
    Just threw together my own version of the enchilada dish--had to sub a few things--but am looking forward to dinner now!
    Oh, how I love The Gardener's Cottage--Always a treat--Tabitha posted perfectly--You've got the ART OF LIVING DOWNPAT. :-)

  24. Blogger wouldn't let me comment before....i was rather cranky.

    All I did was suggest you come on over in that iconic outfit with a couple of plates of enchiladas and a few roses from your garden. And it wouldn't let me post.

    Am I banned?
    Were these not good suggestions?

  39. It is always fun to read your posts. Black and white looks as good on you as it does in your house! Love the roses. We're just getting tulips here in the Midwest, and are they a sight for sore eyes!

    I've been thinking of enchiladas lately, and this sounds easy and delicious enough to be the one I make... Have a wonderful Mother's Day.
