It All Started with a Pantry Cleaning
Last week, I embarked on the ultimate pantry cleanup mission. As I emptied our pantry with the help of my 16-year-old, I was astounded by the number of cans we had accumulated. Among them, I discovered a whopping ten cans of enchilada sauce. It was evident that I had a habit of buying more than I needed and then losing track of it in the disorganized mess. But instead of feeling overwhelmed, a burst of inspiration hit me. It was time to explore the potential of enchilada sauce beyond traditional enchiladas.
