Love Dinner For Breakfast- Enchiladas

There is something just wonderful about waking up and knowing there is something you can just warm up for breakfast that is a savory good.  The recipe below was one that as soon as dinner was over I knew I was heating a slice of this up and serving it with an egg for breakfast. It was perfect with a cup of coffee and kept me more than satisfied till I had a late lunch.

I love cooking recipes from Engine 2. I read the book last summer and while I am not going to vegetarian, I do believe that eating more vegetables is a key to better health.  I know there is a term for it Rip’s book but I can’t remember it. I do know the recipes are not only usually very easy to make and extremely tasty but they always seem to work perfect for my budget. I am for eating less meat.

I did decide to make my own enchilada sauce instead of buying a jarred sauce. I am still perfecting my sauce and will share a recipe as soon as I get it to taste just like I want but there is nothing wrong with buying a sauce. Just look for one with ingredients you know.

This goes together more like a lasagna but that makes it easy to toss together and kids can help if you got them. I also have found that Engine 2 recipes tend to feed more than they say. I think it should say something like 4-6 hungry firemen.

This recipe can be found along with other really tasty recipes that any carnivore would happily eat over at the Engine 2 Diet website along with all kinds of information. I have to  say reading Rip’s book is well worth a read. I enjoyed not only the information he shares but the way in which it is written and the look into the life of a fireman.
