Origins of This Recipe

My husband, Jerry, lived in Louisiana before we met. He was born in Munroe, Louisiana, but the Parker family migrated to Hart, Texas, when they were still small children. Jerry was raised on a thousand-acre farm in Texas, where his mother, Evon, learned to cook many Tex-Mex recipes.

This recipe for Sour Cream Enchiladas - Easy is from my late mother-in-law, Evon Dean Parker. After Jerry's father died, Evon moved back to the panhandle in Louisiana, to a little town called Farmerville. It seems, we learn some of the best recipes from southerners; or maybe we appreciate their recipes more because they are so different from what we are used to, here in Southern California.

This recipe is a great way to use up stale tortilla chips. Plus, it is easy to make and it tastes delicious!

"Sour Cream Enchiladas - Easy" (Click to Tweet) is a Parker Family favorite that you will have to try for your next family get-together, church function, pot-luck, or party.
