While I may not especially enjoy cooking, somehow all of these years of doing it has made me pretty good at it! As Angeline is growing up and getting ready to set out on her own after high school graduation, we are spending more and more time in the most important room in the house...the kitchen! In honor of Dia Del Nino, or "Children's Day," Angeline and I spent Sunday evening making this super easy Cheesy Spinach Enchiladas recipe using HERDEZ® Salsa Verde and Salsa Casera. It was the perfect meatless dish for my aspiring vegetarian, and a great way to get not only a dose of calcium but veggies too!
