Enchiladas Suizas

Enchiladas Suizas

Mexican food. I crave it.

But so many of the Mexican restaurants around here just don’t cut it. There’s one in particular, well-known by college students for their Margarita specials, that I dread going to with friends because it means a $12 plate of sub-par enchiladas suizas (my favorite) next to a sad pile of rice and brown blob of refried beans.

Give me better Mexican food! For $7 in California, I can get amazing enchiladas suizas with the best rice and beans you’ve ever had.

Don’t tolerate bad Mexican food!

Make your own.

Black Bean, Tomatillo and Poblano Soup

Some people pair food with wine. Others pair it with a perfectly complementary table setting. I pair food with music. I’m constantly seeking out new flavors in food, and I’m on a parallel journey to discover new sounds in music.

I’ve decided to share music pairings with each recipe. A song whose spirit captures the spirit of the dish. This song by Cayucas is sunny, etherial, bright, and poppy. It feels like lazy days in the beachy sunshine, eating tacos from a street vendor. This hearty Mexican soup is like a winter remedy for missing that moment of summertime.
