Chicken Enchiladas

Chicken Enchiladas
aka the best enchiladas ever! Thank you so much to Laura, at Tide and Thyme, for introducing me to this recipe. Seriously - they were so so good I can't even tell you. So good in fact, that the leftovers are really calling my name, and I'm trying so hard to resist.... OK so on to the recipe. I followed her recipe pretty closely, with the exception of a few minor changes. Seriously, make these ASAP! Chicken Enchiladas with Red Chile Sauceadapted from Tide and Thyme, orginally from America's Test Kitchen Combine the onion, jalapeno, 1/2 teaspoon salt, and oil in a large saucepan. cover and cook over medium-low heat, stirring often, until the onions and peppers have softened, 8-10 minutes. Nestle the chicken into the sauce. Strain the sauce through a strainer into a medium bowl, pressing the onion mixture to extract as much liquid as possible. Shred the chicken into bite-sized pieces. Lightly spray the tops of the enchiladas with cooking spray. Reduce heat to 400.

Oven Roasted Potatoes When I heard this month’s Kitchen Bootcamp Challenge was potatoes, I was pumped. Originally, I had great plans for the sweet potatoes still in my basement from last fall, but after researching and chatting with the hubby, I decided to go with Yukon Gold potatoes instead. My husband isn’t a huge fan of sweet potatoes and I wanted to make something he would enjoy too, so that’s how I settled on this oven roasted potato recipe. Yukon Golds are our favorite potato to grow in the garden and they absolutely melt in your mouth when freshly dug from the garden. But oddly enough, I’ve never actually roasted them in the oven.

Red Chile Enchiladas with Chicken and Melted Cheese I know, I know. Rick Bayless recipes are becoming the new goat cheese recipes on my blog. But, what can I say? When every recipe I’ve tried has been so simple to make and so good, how can I not keep going back to Mexican Everyday? Enchilada Lasagna This is without a doubt my husbands all time favorite dish. I got this recipe from his sister, and made just a few tiny adjustments to it. It is a very mild Mexican dish, and pretty much fail proof. I don't make it often enough though, specially if you ask my hubby. He would like to have it at least once a week.

It’s all about the side dishes Hi Everyone, they can make or break a meal. Very often, they are the most memorable things about a meal; without them, let’s just say that your meal will be average with the ham, turkey, roast pork, beef or chicken all standing alone. Lonely. Side dishes are headliners in their own right. Each holiday, whether it is Christmas, Easter, Eid, Diwali or Independence, the topic centres on food – what to cook, what traditional dishes to make and what new things to try. We get caught up in a frenzy of pre-ordering meat. Sex in a Pan Sex in a Pan – crazy name for a dessert, but it’s one of the best desserts you’ll ever have, it’s mostly a pudding dessert with a crunchy pecan bottom crust. Don’t laugh at the name of this dessert! OK, you can laugh, it is funny. I have no idea why it’s called sex in a pan, maybe because it’s so good. I remember a long time ago, before I was married, and used to live on my own, one weekend my friend came over and she introduced me to this dessert.

gooseberry mooseberry: Shrimp and Noodle Salad It's been hot. We've had an almost unbearable heatwave last week. And once again cold dishes and salads are my friends. Truth is, I don't remember much of the last month and a half of summer. Save for a few stolen moments. For they do feel like stolen. Crock Pot Chicken Taco Chili One of my most popular recipes! This is the perfect slow cooker dish because you just dump all the ingredients in, turn it on and come back to the best tasting meal! No prep, super easy, freezes well and the kids love it! We love it over rice, or served in a bowl with multi-grain chips, topped with reduced fat cheddar cheese or avocados. This makes a lot and it is even better the next day for lunch! A great freezer-friendly meal!

Caramel Apple Cheesecake Bars These Caramel Apple Cheesecake Bars are the most popular recipe on my blog and have been pinned over 1 million times. These creamy cheesecake bars start with a shortbread crust, a thick cheesecake layer, and are topped with diced cinnamon apples and a sweet streusel topping. I can’t believe it’s the end of September and I haven’t posted any apple desserts yet. For me, September is all about the apple! I’ve been making this Paula Deen recipe for a couple of years now and they’ve always been good but they always needed a little more cheesecake filling in my opinion to match the thick crust and ample streusel topping. So I increased the cheesecake filling and these are even better than I remember.

Creamy Chicken Marsala Pasta Do you ever look in your pantry and have an ingredient that you tend to use for the same dish every single time? When it comes to Marsala wine, my go to dish is naturally Chicken Marsala. I've made a few different versions but this Creamy Chicken Marsala Pasta is the most favorite of my husband. The creamy Marsala sauce with caramelized mushrooms and onions really make it even more comforting. It's a dish you can make during the week for family and it's even good enough for company... Unfettered F-U-N . . . Rainbow Jelly Shooter! Rainbow Jelly Shooter Its been a whirlwind at the test kitchen. The book is progressing (crossing fingers that it is going to press in early December!), we have been working on a little something (three little somethings, actually) for Saveur.com, and about a million more actions items cropping up here and there, many of which have not received appropriate attention and are currently housed in a bin marked "anxiety provoking". One of the highlights of our week was a lovely chat with Erin over at Tablespoon.com, who mentioned that they were hosting a Double Rainbow Week, which sounded like such fun! (And it IS - featured items include double rainbow . . . donuts!

Grilled Corn, Avocado and Tomato Salad with Honey Lime Dressing When looking for a tasty salad on the Internet I came across this one from Jehan Can Cook. It sounded perfect. I love all the ingredients and flavors used so I was really excited to try it. Quick & Cheesy Chicken Pot Pie For the longest time my quick, go-to Chicken Pot Pie recipe involved canned cream of chicken soup and a homemade biscuit topping. I’m *trying* to stay away from processed foods and to feed my family more naturally, so I came up with this recipe. Which, in my mind, tastes way better then the original anyways. I simplified it with an even easier biscuit topping, using the homemade bisquick mix that I always keep on hand in my fridge.

Kicked Up Tuna Melts Is there something in your life that comes up seemingly out of the blue, but strangely happens every year? Ash Wednesday is like that for me. I know, there’s really no excuse, but I'm surprised every year. Why the problem? Well, my meal plan the Sunday before Ash Wednesday usually looks something like this: Monday, Macaroni and Cheese; Tuesday, Tortilla Soup; Wednesday, Beef Tacos; Thursday, Chinese Chicken; Friday, Pork Chops. Garlicky Baked Fries I’m never going to make garlic potato fries any other way. These garlic fries, win hands down as the best garlic french fries I’ve ever made. Plus they are baked – so I won’t feel too guilty if I make it every time I’m craving for some potato comfort.
