Monthly Menu: Cheesy Chicken Enchiladas, Refried Beans, & Mexican Calabacitas


    Hola everyone! Tonight we dined on some yummy Mexican food!  When it comes to Mexican food, I'm pretty picky.  I like enchiladas but usually only cheesy ones on flour tortillas with no onions...like I said, picky.  Or should I just say, selective...haha.  Anyways, I found this recipe on Pinterest though looked pretty good so thought I would give it a try.  I actually made it ahead of time and froze it for a later date like today!
