I’ve decided to try making at least one new dish a week. This week’s new dish was enchiladas! The recipe came from Gooseberry Patch’s Comfort Foods.
I made my grocery list and headed off to the store. Produce is in the front of the store so I decided to get my onion first. There, I ran into my first problem. What’s the difference between white and yellow onions? I had no clue, so I chose a white onion. When I returned home I consulted the internet. If anyone is as clueless as I am, here’s your answer:
Yellow onions are usually used for cooking because when cooked they “add excellent flavor.” The article went on to say that when a recipe calls for an onion, it usually means yellow. …well, crud.
But wait! As I read farther the article also said, “White onions are commonly used in Mexican cuisines.” Score!
Here’s the link if you’d like to read about red onions as well.
I think the actual process of making the enchiladas still took me longer than necessary (I took forever to chop the onions. Maybe I need a slap chop.) but the outcome was good! According to the hubby it’s the best dish I’ve ever made…not that there have been many. Now on to bigger and better things!
