    Thank you for your time & effort I really appreciate your hard work keep it up:).
    The recipes are great & easy to implement & your advice & explanation are very helpful.
    I appreciate the variety of recipes & the website is amazing & well organized.

  2. This was a great recipe! I like to keep things simple and as such, I don’t keep enchilada sauce on hand. I was excited to see this seasoning recipe that I could make and add to tomato sauce when I want to make enchiladas. And it uses spices that I already have in my pantry! Thanks for this recipe and I can’t wait to try some of your other recipes!

  3. This was great and so easy. I had some leftover lentils, very bland, knew they needed some “help” before I used them to make enchiladas. I first toasted (a portion of) your spice blend and then added the lentils, stirring them around to get them covered and delicious. I took a small bite just to see, but then I wanted to take more bites it was so yummy. (I didn’t — just for inside the enchiladas.)

    Thank you!
