Megan’s family always has enchiladas on the Thanksgiving table.

The recipe holds a special place in her heart because it was her late Grandma Rachel’s.

Megan got together with her “two best girlfriends,” her mom and grandma, to make this signature dish.

Megan’s daughter, Lola Rae — who is named after Grandma Lola and Grandma Rachel — did the honor of topping the enchiladas with cilantro.

Four generations were in the kitchen to enjoy this delicious Thanksgiving dish.
