Cheesy Chicken Enchiladas



Today, I am sharing one of my family's favorite recipes.

Cheesy Chicken Enchiladas

Here is what you will need:

For  the Enchiladas
3 cups chopped Cooked Chicken, I use my Salsa Chicken
2 cups shredded Monterey Jack Cheese
1/2 cup Sour Cream
1/4 cup chopped Pickled Jalapenos
1 pack Frozen Spinach, thawed and drained
8 flour tortillas

For the Sauce
8oz Sour Cream
8oz Green Salsa

Stir together the first five ingredients.  Spoon mixture into the tortillas.
Roll them up and place them into a greased 9x13 dish. Bake at 350* for 35 to 40 minutes.  Take out of the oven and mix sauce, pour over the top, and enjoy.

Easy Dinner Prep Ideas ~ episode 1

I don't know about you but I love to cook....except for at 4:30 each night.  By that time of day I am tired and my brain is mush.  Because of this I try everything in my power to do things before this time of day.  Normally I will do some prep for dinner each morning, it helps keep me from the afternoon panic of having NOTHING thawed to eat!  But one of my best tips ~by far~ is to cook lots of meat recipes ahead of time and freeze them.  I am going to share a few ideas here.

Our all time favorite and easiest ever is what we call 
Salsa Chicken
Are you ready for the easiest recipe ever?

Here is what you will need:

Crock pot
8-10 Chicken Breast
2 jars (16 oz) of your favorite Salsa

Rinse and dry your chicken, place in crock pot, pour over 1 jar of salsa, cook on low 8 hours.  Remove chicken breast, shred using two forks, place in a mixing bowl, pour over second jar of salsa, mix, separate into freezer bags freeze. I told you it was easy!!!!  We use this in pasta, Cheesy Chicken Enchiladas, and over rice.  It is as yummy as it is easy!


Recipe number two is just as easy.

BBQ Chicken

Here is what you will need:


Crock pot
8-10 Chicken Breast
2 jars (16 oz) of your BBQ Sauce

Rinse and dry your chicken, place in crock pot, pour over 1 jar of BBQ sauce, cook on low 8 hours.  Remove chicken breast, shred using two forks, place in a mixing bowl, pour over second jar of BBQ sauce, mix, separate into freezer bags freeze.  We use this for BBQ sandwiches and in Brunswick stew.



I do this same idea with 

Taco Meat

I just brown my Ground beef, drain, season, separate, and freeze.


Do you make any thing ahead of time to help make dinner time easier?

The Year Of Travel ~ episode 1

This past year has been one of many adventures and in hopes to remember I am going to try to write some post about them.  There will be lots of pictures and a few words along the way.  Hope you enjoy!

Last October I had the GREAT pleasure of boarding a plane with one of my sweet friends, Megan, and flying to Texas to go stay with another one of my friends, April, and attend a conference.
Well, if you know me - you know - I HATE to fly….something about my controlling nature!  But I shimmied up my BIG GIRL PANTIES and got on the plane.  From Atlanta to Dallas should have been an easy flight. 
 NO SUCH LUCK. 
We were about an hour in when the plane had never leveled out, imagine the rocky feeling of turbulence with no an air problem.  The captain came over the intercom to tell us we would be making an emergency landing in Mississippi.  I sent a quick text to my friend watching my girls and to my husband.  Then I went to holding my breath and praying.  I did not panic.  I would have told you that I would panic in that situation if you had ever asked me about it before. 
THERE IS POWER IN PRAYER! 
 Once we landed we got to hangout in the international side of the Mississippi airport.  If you have never been to this part of the Mississippi airport let me tell you it is not very big…tiny to be exact with only a newsstand and one set of bathrooms.  We were not allowed to leave this area and we were not told for sure what the plan was for us.  There was talk of us getting back on the same airplane….they were CRAZY if they thought that was happening and then they also said they might send us back to Atlanta and have us start over on another plane….If I made it back to Atlanta I was going home!
With all the confusion of what the plan was and the confined space, people started to get annoyed which worried me even more.  Who was going to let their CRAZY out first???

Stacks of pizzas and armed men solve everything, right?
This clearly was not their first rodeo…stranded group of people.

Thankfully, once our bellies were full and vouchers for free meals to be used at another airport (the other airport would not accept them but that is another story) were passed out it seemed they had a plan for us.  We would board a new plane and finish our trip.  We were still about an hour away from the new plane being ready but it is amazing what a plan will do to lift peoples spirits.
I had notice when we boarded the first plane a large scratch in the paint beside the door.  I was now thankful for that knowledge and that I would be able to tell if there were trying to pass the same plane off on us, ha!!! They were not so I boarded, still with hesitation but I did get on.  The rest of the flight went off without a hitch!  We arrived just in time for my friend April to pick us up and us all go straight to the conference.

Overall the conference was just okay.  I love meeting and chatting with Michelle Duggar.  She is as genuine, kind, and heartfelt as you would want her to be.  Her session during the conference was very good and she share some practical and encouraging advice on being a godly wife and mother.
We shared late nights talking and much needed fellowship and then it was time to pack up and head back home.





I knew I would be back to Texas,
Charity
