Do you ever have that meal that reminds you of family? For me that is remembering breakfast at Grandma’s table. Growing up, my family and I, along with all my aunts, uncles and cousins spent countless hours at my grandparents’ house. Without fail we got together at their house after church on Sunday’s every week. Mi abuela always had an apron on and was at the stove turning tortillas or making some amazing dish for the entire family.
My love for cooking definitely comes from her because cooking for family makes me happy. This Dia de los Muertos, I will be honoring all my departed loved ones by making this Sweet Potato, Queso Fresco and Black Bean Enchiladas and sitting around with the family reminiscing on all the great times we had. I know my grandma and grandpa would have sat down at the kitchen table, tried this dish and loved it. Especially with the addition of an egg on top. My fondest memories of them are sitting at the kitchen table eating breakfast while looking out over their back yard.
I’ve used all of my favorite ingredients in this dish that can easily be made for breakfast, lunch or dinner. The addition of Cacique® Queso Fresco to the enchiladas both inside the filling and on top gives it a nice creaminess. You can never have too much of that creamy cheese! The Cacique® Crema pairs nicely with the avocado to give the enchiladas a little unexpected flavor drizzled over the top.
