Yeah, the white stuff is sour cream. Sorry for its lack of beauty (sour cream in the oven never makes for a pretty presentation- see my Deep-Dish Taco Squares) but it sure rubs ya right when you take a bite!
Okay i KNOW this recipe is not the most thigh-friendly (I'm still working on finding a a guilt-free enchilada recipe), but I did have an excuse to make it.
A) It was Fast Sunday.
B) My family was coming over for dinner! Forrest and I were in charge of making dinner and dessert. (I made the cheesecake for dessert that I posted about earlier this week)
C) It is my mother-in-law's recipe who is a FABULOUS cook. She gave me a cookbook with Pratt family recipes in it for my bridal shower and I am so excited about it.
Therefore, I was completely justified in making a delicious, cheesy, fatty, delectable Mexican dish!
