Well, after about 20 years of sitting in my famous 3-ring binder “Pulitzer’s Cookbook,” I pulled out our beloved Cheese Enchilada recipe from “Country Folk” newspaper. After about two days and many trips to the grocery store, I finished them. Of course, I once again goofed on my measurements and put in 2 tablespoons of cayenne pepper instead of 2 tablespoons of chili powder. It was so hot I coughed and couldn’t take much other than a prickly sensation in my mouth. I diluted it by straining out 1/2 the sauce (preserving the onions) and then added another can of Campbell’s Tomato soup. I also substituted chicken instead of ground beef, as an effort to be healthier.
When my two girlfriends came over to indulge in these marathon creations, I forgot to serve the sour cream to help counter the hotness. Ooops.
