So as I was deciding on my meal plan for the week I asked Trace if he wanted Beef Enchiladas, he then replied I really like your mom's chicken enchiladas better than your beef ones. So instead of hitting him in the head I tried to remember the chicken enchiladas recipes. I'm not 100% sure if this is her exact recipe so I'm going to check with her but these turned out pretty good.
2 to 3 Chicken Breasts (Boiled and Shredded)
Garlic to taste
1 Can Chopped Green Chilies
8 oz Cream Cheese
8 to 10 Tortillas
1 Pint Heavy Whipping Cream
2 Cups Cheddar Jack Cheese Blend (Shredded)
Saute onions, green chilies, and garlic
Add Chicken and Cream Cheese. Stir on low heat until cheese melts and is blended.
Divide meat mixture into tortillas and place in pan. Cover with shredded cheese and slowly pour heavy cream covering the entire dish.
Bake at 375 for 30 mins
This turned out really good and made a ton! We actually had leftovers for lunch tomorrow.
I love trying new recipes especially the ones I find on other cooking blogs. I like seeing real pictures of the recipes that people have cooked and not pictures of what a cook book has manipulated different things to show you what it should look like. One of my favorite cooking blogs is Plain Chicken she has lots of recipes I want to try out so you will see me linking to her a lot. My first attempt at one of her recipes is a pretty simple one. It's an easy biscuit recipe. I think this is the first recipe I've tried were I actually already had all the ingredients on hand! I was so excited about that.
1/4 cup unsalted butter
1 & 1/4 cup flour
2 tsp sugar
2 tsp baking powder
1 tsp kosher salt
2/3 to 1 cup buttermilk or milk
Preheat your oven to 450 degrees. Cut the butter into small pieces and place them in a 8-inch square microwave safe baking dish. Put the dish in the microwave to melt the butter.
While the butter is melting mix the dry ingredients together then stir in 2/3 cup of milk and mix together to form a loose dough. You can add more milk up to 1 cup as needed. Remove dish from microwave and press dough over the melted butter. Using a knife cut the biscuits into 9 or 12 pieces.
There is nothing like walking in the door after a long day at work and having a nice warm home cooked meal waiting for you. One of our favorite meals to have during these cold winter months is Roast beef with potatoes and carrots. It is also a very easy meal to throw in your slow cooker before you head out to work.
Roast (1.5 to 2 lbs)
1 Packet of Dry Onion Soup Mix
1 to 2 cans of Beef Broth ( I use one can of broth and one can of water)
I spray my slow cooker with non-stick cooking spray and then place the roast in the bottom of the pan. I top that with the dry onion soup mix and carrots. Then wash the potatoes and cut them in halves or fourths depending on the size and place them on top. Cover with broth and/or water and cook on low for 8 to 10 hours.
