El Pato /The Duck, enchilada sauce is one of my favorites that comes from a can.

Last night I had chili on tamales with cheese and one whole giant red onion chopped and put on top.
It was what turned out the be the worlds hottest red onion.
I mean this thing was hot big time but I ate it anyway with watery eyes and runny nose.
I was feeling down in the dumps yesterday (cold coming on) and after I ate this nasty sulfuric thing I went to bed.
This morning I feel much better.
I think it was the onion that made me feel better and warded off what ever was about to hit me.
Cant prove it but it is what I choose to believe.

Yep, enchiladas are authentic Mexican as a tortilla wrapped around some other food. I had shrimp enchiladas in cheese sauce for lunch today. My wife had egg filled soft tacos. Enchiladas are so authentic, TexMex couldn't exist without them. We gringo's must maintain some sense of authenticity.


Red Onions! I used to think they are mild and sweet. At least I was told they are. I've grown them in my garden. Some of them bring tears to my eyes and I don't mean as I am cutting them. Those "dudes" can be hot. I love them.

Your first ever enchiladas, Nan? Glad you enjoyed them. Growing up in So Cal, they were pretty much a staple. I just made pork enchiladas a few days ago with leftover meat from the night before. Topped them with green enchilada sauce which we prefer over red. I love just plain cheese and onion enchiladas with lots of rice on the side.

I just did a rough calculation of how many pounds of onions I eat a year.
It averages about 300 pounds for one person.
I buy about 6 pounds a week in the three pound bags.
I just looked it up and the average person per year eats 13.67 pounds across the world per year.
The US is 20.3 pounds dried and fresh per person.
And here I am at 300 pounds.
America isn't eating enough onions by a long shot.

Enchiladas are wonderful, you can put almost anything in them and they are good! Rob and I always preferred the green sauce more than red, and not the sweet enchiladas that were in vogue for a time. Cheese and onion enchiladas are the bomb!

Sam's club has started selling large bags of real bacon bits. The "bits" are fairly large pieces of real, cooked bacon. They are not the processed soy bean bacon bit's that have been around for many years as a salad topping. They taste like bacon taken from the fry pan only a few minutes earlier.


The real bacon bits with some scrambled egg, cheddar cheese, chopped onion, and possibly a little salsa wrapped in a tortilla are delicious.

I had some Indian Fry Bread with pickled jalapenos and honey for lunch. We went to a Powwow today at Trader's Village.

Yes, breakfast tacos are good too. Had a guilty pleasure for supper, a Wendy's Jr bacon burger.
