Extra Cheesy Enchiladas

I live in Southern California.  And one thing us Southern Californian’s, know, love, can’t live without if good Mexican food.  I’m talking cheese, I’m talking chilis and I’m talking topping it off with some sour cream!  Did I mention Cheese? 

A side of guac you offer?  I’m a happy girl!

I think I just drooled a little.

Why is Mexican food so good?  It’s so warm and spicy and cheesy and comforty.  Is comforty a word?  This is California comfort food.  I gotta admit, I never really got the fried chicken and mashed potatoes thing.  That’s a lie, I love mashed potatoes.  But my point is, I will take a big plate of steamy enchiladas any. day. of. the. week.

Luckily, I found these enchiladas.  These are ooey and gooey and oh so delish!  Oh and did I mention low in cals?  Say what?!?  Yup!  Dig on in ladies because these cheesy delights are low cal and bikini season ready!  Have I mentioned lately I’m ready for summer?  That’s a different story!
Oh, and check back tomorrow for these…
