Becca made enchiladas the other night using some left-over pork we had
from earlier in the week. We like them smothered in sauce, too. Lots
of good Mexican restaurants around here, but again, the stuff Becca
makes is better. We even tried our hand at making tamales from scratch
at Christmas and they came out great.
