Top them off with a fresh avocado mango slaw and you’ve got a balanced, delicious and irresistible springtime meal. Trust me, this meal does not disappoint! Honestly, as I was rolling up the enchiladas. I had to continuously knock people’s hands out of the chorizo mixture. They just would not give up, and keeping hands out of these photos was beyond difficult. The second I took my last photo, they went in for the kill. I can’t blame them though; the smells wafting through the house were tortuous. Definitely too good to resist! The bonus is these are super simple, quick and easy to make. I used Old El Paso enchilada sauce to make them extra flavorful – and clearly lots of cheese. Because, well ... cheese makes everything so much better! Serve them up right away!
