Chicken enchiladas

So, I've been craving chicken enchiladas for the past few days, and finally broke down and made some. I really like them, but I was a bit worried about how Erin would react. I shouldn't have been.

She ate TWO WHOLE enchiladas! Well, minus the two bites you can see still on her tray. She's been a piglet today. Maybe a growth spurt is coming on?

Anyway, here's the recipe if you're interested:
1 can chicken breast meat
sour cream
grated cheddar cheese
sliced olives
enchilada sauce

Mix the chicken with enough sour cream to make it the consistency you like. Add cheddar cheese and sliced olives to the amount you want. Spread the bottom of a 13x9 inch baking pan with a thin layer of enchilada sauce. Spread a thin layer of enchilada sauce on a tortilla. Put some filling on one end of tortilla (sauce side) and roll. Place in pan. Repeat until you run out of room or filling (about 10 enchiladas). Spread the remaining sauce on top of enchiladas. Cover with aluminum foil and bake at 350* for 20 minutes. Remove aluminum foil, top with more grated cheese, and place back in the oven until cheese is melted.

(if you don't like sour cream, you can use cream of chicken soup)

Enjoy! We did!

The next time you make them, add a can of mild chilies into the enchilada mix. A few months ago, I didn't have any olives, so I threw in a can of chilies instead and we loved it! They were even better with the olives and chilies. It just gives it an extra flavor that we really like. Anyway, just thought I'd pass that along!

In that comment where I said your smile looked like your sister, I was actually talking about Adrienne (again, fairly certain I'm butchering that spelling) You guys look a lot more alike than I think you even realize...

Oh yeah... a meme is like, in infectious blog game. Someone posts something (like my memory game, or my "Like Mother, Like Daughter" post) and usually "tags" specific bloggers. When you're "tagged" you have to fill it out on your blog and tag other people. Now, both of those memes that I posted were non-tag memes... just general "if ya wanna do it, do it!" type memes. So... you left me a memory, but no post of your own! Hurry up and copy, paste, post and I'll give you my memory back :-)
