Easy Chicken Enchiladas
3 c. shredded cheddar cheese, divided
2 c. shredded Monterey Jack cheese
2 c. chopped cooked chicken (I used the chicken in a can)
2 c. sour cream
1 (10.75 oz) can condensed cream of chicken soup, undiluted
1 (4 oz) can chopped green chilies
2 tblsp. finely chopped onion
1/2 tsp. pepper
1/4 tsp. salt
10 (8 in.) flour tortillas, warmed
1. In a large bowl, combine 2 cups cheddar cheese, monterey jack cheese, chicken, sour cream, soup, chilies, onion, pepper, and salt. Spoon about 1/2 c. off center in each tortilla and roll up. Place seam side down in a greased 13 x 9 x 2 inch baking dish.
2. Cover and bake at 350 degrees for 20 minutes. Uncover; sprinkle with remaining cheddar cheese. Bake 5 minutes longer or until cheese is melted. Let stand for 10 minutes before serving.
3 avocados - peeled, pitted, and mashed
1 lime, juiced
1 tsp. salt
1/2 cup diced onion
3 tblsp chopped fresh cilantro
2 roma or plum tomatoes, diced
1 tsp. minced garlic
1 pinch ground cayenne pepper (optional)
In a medium bowl, mash together the avocados, lime juice, and salt. Mix in onion, cilantro, tomatoes, and garlic. Stir in cayenne pepper. Refrigerator 1 hour for best flavor, or serve immediately.
The girls (some of us are probably in the lady category) I work with all share recipes, challenge each other to try new foods, and so on. I've tried more new things this year than ever before. Here's the list (so far): wheatberries, quinoa, salmon, asparagus, tomatoes, brussel sprouts, and strawberries. I really hated strawberries last summer and have since acquired a love for them. As a matter of fact, I think I had strawberry shortcake every night last week. So tell me please, what are some of your family's favorite meals? Where do you go for your inspiration? Do you have a favorite cookbook? What is something new that you've tried lately.
Happy cooking and I hope you find your answer to "what's for dinner?" tonight.
