Personal Notes:
This has been a favorite with roommates, family, and friends. My favorite memory is of Zatl requesting these enchiladas with Kara’s apple crisp. He offered to buy the ingredients. When I started listing off what we would need, he threw $50 at me. I felt like a very successful “stripper.”

The famous apple crisp recipe is in the dessert section of this book
