Back to the Basics: Fall & One Pot Stacked Enchiladas

One Pot Stacked Enchiladas
I guess that the first day of fall doesn’t start until the September equinox. Who makes these rules? Well lately the lovely Colorado weather has felt different, and to me, different means fall. Fall always was my favorite season. Maybe because my birthday is in November and the changing season meant fabulous presents on the horizon. Lately I’ve been in a rut (when have I never been in one), and this crisp weather has reminded of me of things I used to enjoy doing in the fall. So I thought I’d make a list, premature though it might be.
Halloween – going door to door finding the best houses for candy while dressing up like someone else always appealed to me. I can’t imagine anything more fun.
Going to the giant corn maze
Holding on to someone in haunted houses
Carving pumpkins – I can’t say going to the pumpkin patch, because I don’t think I’ve ever done that
Playing outside, maybe in the leaves
Cuddling up against the heater with a good book, blanket, and a nice cat
Thanksgiving – always more about family than food
This whole adult life is really getting to me. I used to play, pretend. Now I feel so boring, just going through time without imagination. What do you do in the fall? I need inspiration.

Campin' Enchiladas

  1. In a pot, stack the food. Enchilada sauce, then tortilla, then beans, then cheese, then black olives. Repeat until you have many layers.
  2. Cook over medium heat until cooked all the way through.
