When we were first married the vegetables we ate literally came out of our little garden and also from day old section of indoor ranch market.
Even then, I loved the challenge to cook what we had. I read Edith Schaefer books and was inspired by the way she has always lived her life...accepted challenges to make do with what she had.
One dish I would make was Swiss Chard Enchiladas. I really did just make it up back then. I used big cans of Tomato Juice for sauce...it would go far. I can't seem to find it anymore so now I use Tomato Sauce. I always roll the chard inside softened corn tortillas.
Here we go!
Swiss Chard....It is so pretty!
It is cut up and being cleaned.
Put the ends cut up in our compost pitcher to feed our worm compost.
I softened corn tortillas in microwave and then pull them through the hot sauce to soften them more. (be careful to not burn your fingers)
Before rolling them up, I add Shredded Part Skim Mozarella Cheese on top of chard.
So, I do fill and roll them one by one in the baking dish.
I sprinkle rest of shredded cheese on top,......
.....and ready to eat!
we still love to eat these Swiss Chard Enchiladas......
