Quick summer time lunch

So because it's getting hot here (and because I'm pregnant), I'm craving lots of cold, fresh foods. Side note, I had Jason's Deli for lunch the other day with a friend for the first time in like 10 years, and the salad bar was SO refreshing!! I'm trying to remember what all I put in my salad so that I can recreate it, because it was super delicious. Do people even go to Jason's Deli anymore? I'm okay with the free ice cream that comes with every meal....🙋

Welp, it's been awhile since I last posted a recipe (story of this blog). Sorry about that. *guilty emoji face* But I'm going to make up for my recipe absence with enchiladas. Surely, that corrects all wrongs, right??

I don't know if you all have any Christmas food traditions, but I know several people whose families eat tamales at Christmas. Mexican fiesta? Yes, please, I'm down--especially if I can top everything with avocado. My family didn't do that growing up. Instead, our traditional favorites were things like tiger butter, ham dip, and white trash. Interesting names, delicious food.

So with Christmas right around the corner, I figured you could honor your family tradition or tap into someone else's family tradition and eat Mexican food to celebrate the Christmas season. These enchiladas are filled with protein, veggies, and cheese and wrapped in a doughy tortilla <3. I used store-bought enchilada sauce, but you could definitely make your own. Also, they ended up being a bit spicy, so if you're not a big fan of heat, used a mild enchilada sauce or go easy on the sauce. You'll definitely want to top with sour cream, avocado, and some green onion and cilantro. We didn't have any green onions, hence why they aren't in the picture.

I served mine with roasted Brussels sprouts and cauliflower because roasted veggies are my jam, but these would pair nicely with some Mexican rice or chips and salsa. I'd love to hear what you all have planned for Christmas and what your favorite Christmas food tradition is!! Comment below! :-D
