Chicken Enchilada Soup

We are in major count down mode at our house.  We’re not counting down the days until Christmas but rather counting down the days until the kids arrive home!!  The first one arrives home tomorrow and by Saturday evening they will all be home.  I’m just a little excited. One of my goals is to have as much Christmas prep and blog work down before they get home as I can so that I can really enjoy my time with them and have as few distractions as possible.  So that [Continue Reading…]

  True Confessions: Some nights I just don’t feel like cooking! Yes, even food bloggers get tired of cooking. Life gets busy, I don’t plan very well and people get hungry at my house!

Today I am excited to share a recipe and a product with you that helps solve all of my problems mentioned above. I love to [Continue Reading…]

Chicken Enchiladas and Enchilada Sauce

Chicken Enchiladas

Today’s recipe is the fourth in the series of recipes I promised you that make quick and easy summer meals because they start with a rotisserie chicken.  You can pick one up at Costco or your local grocery store and dinner is halfway made.

The first step is to use the chicken from your rotisserie chicken and combine [Continue Reading…]

Tomorrow is Cinco de Mayo – the 5th of May!  The holiday celebrates the Mexican army’s unlikely victory over French forces at the Battle of Puebla on May 5, 1862.

Enchiladas are my favorite Mexican food but sometimes you want the flavor of an enchilada but not the work of filling and rolling them – that’s when an enchilada casserole comes in handy! I am not much of a casserole girl but this enchilada [Continue Reading…]

Beef Enchiladas

I think my favorite ethnic food group is Mexican.  It is usually my food of choice when I get to pick where we go out to eat.

When I was in college I would save up my food money and treat myself to a cheese enchilada in the BYU Cougareat once a week! And still, when we go out for Mexican food, my choice is always the same – cheese enchiladas! I am not [Continue Reading…]
