Taste of Arizona Enchiladas

Who doesn’t love Mexican food? Living in Phoenix, it is pretty much a staple and we have access to a ton of good restaurants, but I have to say, these enchiladas rival ANY restaurant out there and everyone who has tasted them agrees!

TIP: You can swap out the red sauce for green, chicken for beef, etc. Get creative! If you really want to kick the flavor profile up a notch, combine the Taste of Arizona with either of my Cilantro Lime Blends, Taco the Town, 3 Amigos Spicy or Christy’s Chile Lime. SOOOO good!
