I had a few cups of enchilada seasoned shredded chicken in the fridge to use up and wanted some chicken and dumplings. I figured that I would just go with the "southwest" theme, and ended up with a dish that we all love. For more spice, just choose a hot salsa.
My family really likes these. Sometimes I will triple the recipe and put away lots of them in the freezer for quick meals later. You can vary the ingredients using different cheese or ground beef, etc. It makes about 8-10 chimichangas.
I adopted this recipe from the Recipezaar account as I am always on the look out for make ahead recipes. I think these will freeze well and I look forward to trying that. This is the original introduction: "I needed to use up some cooked chicken and also wanted something quick, so, this is what I came up with. It was a hit at my house, I hope it is at yours too!(:" (thanks cbw)
This recipe appears by special request. Creamy chicken and green chilies I use the regular sized tortillas.. not the large ones.I overlap the tortillas to make the layer. I make it up in an oblong serving dish, I think it is about a 9 1/2 inch by 11 inch pan. But any size you would put 1 full cake mix into will work well . I love this recipe.
My college roommate and I came up with this one years ago, and it is still a hit today. The family will love it, and it is great for left-overs the next day. Serve with some spanish rice or refried beans. YUMMY!
i used to make this all the time when i lived by myself, it's one of the first meals i used to make when i just starting out on my own. it makes a great authentic tasting mexican dish. it is orginally from the Better Homes and Gardens Cookbook, with a few variations. i had to refer back to it, because i am more of a "dump" cook, and nolonger use the measurements when preparing this.
A mild but flavorful soup I created after my local store stopped carrying the enjoyable Cugino's "Ridiculously Delicious! Chicken Enchilada Soup!" You can simmer the soup for less time, but the flavors need time to meld together.
These burrito's are unlike any other!! I was feeling really creative one day, and I got all of these ingredients in my head and decided to try it out. Oh my goodness! I have created a monster!! You can add a lot more things if you wish (Corn, Peas, Cilantro, beans, etc). This is just the basic recipe. Hope you like them as much as we did!
Had just a few things in the fridge the other night and came up with this. Surprisingly, it was really good and even my DSs ate every bit on their plates. I used more than 2 cups of cheese however, because in my house, everything goes better with cheese! I topped this with guacomole, more sour cream, more cheese, lettuce, chopped tomatoes and onions. I also served it with refried beans to round it out. Hope you enjoy it as much as we did!
