Tuna Jalapeno Enchiladas


Is it just me, or do you get way less work done on your day off?

I had my first day off today in.. I can't even say how long, and all I was doing was browsing ebay and amazon, making impulse buys. And half of them weren't even Christmas presents!

I had all of these grand plans for what to do with the day. Maybe go to the gym. Get my hair cut. Work on some lesson plans and create tests for next week. But suddenly, it was dinner time and I was hungry and was wondering where the time has gone.

Turns out, even on my days off, I want a quick and easy meal to make for dinner. And I am sick to death of pasta every night.

Enchiladas might just be my new go-to easy weeknight meal! Just stuff a tortilla with whatever you have on hand, top it with cheese and sauce (or in my case, salsa), and boom! Instant dinner!

If you don't like things too spicy, maybe use a mild salsa, or opt out of the jalapenos. But since me and my boyfriend adore spicy food, we put salsa and jalapenos on everything. Biscuitspretzelsquinoa and my personal favorite, pizza! Putting it in enchiladas is only natural!

And now I have something to bring for lunch tomorrow. Score!

  1. I think it is true—we are less efficient on our free day when we have a lot of time. It's like going through the drive through—we wait the longest when the restaurant is empty. I like my canned tuna. These quick and easy enchiladas are a perfect fuss-frees meal!
