You would never know from the abundance of recipes on the blog containing mushrooms, that I’m a recently converted mushroom fan.

Creamy Sriracha Beef Enchilada Recipe

It’s been an entire week since my last new recipe post on the blog! Why the long wait for a delicious new recipe you ask?! Because I took my first trip to New Orleans last week with two of my best friends!

While this enchilada recipe was not inspired by my trip to New Orleans, it is a recipe I’ve been planning for a while now and I couldn’t wait to get home from my trip to whip it up!
