I know I'm posting late...sorry about that. Kiddo comes first! =) Remember the brown rice and black beans I posted Friday? They were the side dish to these awesome Chicken Enchiladas...again from Annie's Eats.
I have been wanting to make enchiladas for a very long time. I love Mexican food, but I have never ordered a chicken enchilada. I always get the beef. But, my husband LOVES chicken...I mean L.O.V.E.S. He could eat grilled chicken every day for the rest of his life, and be okay with it. But me, I can't eat it the same way every day. So this was a great way to change it up a bit. Enchiladas are a lot easier that I thought they would be. Though they do take some time, but the homemade enchilada sauce is totally worth the time and all the dishes it dirties. I promise. No use for that canned or bottled stuff anymore. Way too easy not to make. Everything was fine except for one thing...which honestly, if you're not OCD like me, wouldn't matter. I don't know if I didn't warm up the tortillas enough or not but, they were cracking on me. Not when I rolled them up and put them in the pan, but when they came out of the oven the first time, a couple of them had come open on top. Nothing a little enchilada sauce and cheese can't fix. Right? I really hope y'all try this dish out. It is REALLY good. Even lil man loved it. (I cut the spicy stuff in half so he could have some, and it was perfect.) Hubby said to add it to the recipe book. Sounds like a winner in my book. Enjoy!!
