A tradition for us to use up Thanksgiving Leftovers. If possible I enjoy it even more than Thanksgiving Dinner (I always have been a sucker for casseroles). Found in Dec/Jan 2008 issue of TOH. Submitted by Mary Lou Timpson. A lot of ingredients, and slightly labor intensive, but worth the effort. If you are using leftover potatoes skip steps 3-5, and 12.
I made this recipe for my in-laws and husband who are from Mexico. I was thinking it would be too "americanized" for their tastes, but they LOVED it. They told me that it tasted just like "chilaquiles", which is a dish that they make in a skillet and serve with eggs. Of course my versoin uses more practical ingredients, it's a true Mexican flavor. I serve it with a side of mexican rice, it's YUMMY!
This comes from the Gooseberry Patch Church Suppers cookbook. It is so easy to make and most of the ingredients you may already have on hand. My family thinks it tastes like an alfredo, but there is no alfredo sauce in it! It is sure to be a crowd pleaser!
I've been on a quest to create one-bowl entrees that can easily be heated at work for lunch. I was inspired by Shannon24's lighter Fettuccine Alfredo Recipe #245737. However, while cooking this I came across Vicki in AZ's Bisquick Sour Cream Biscuits Recipe #85148 and decided to use the sour cream I bought for those instead. I opted to use cream cheese in my recipe here to replace the sour cream. Preparation time includes cutting the chicken. I have not set a separate cooking time because I cook one ingredient while prepping the next one. Plan for about 40 minutes from start until sitting down to eat.
These are fantastic..perfect for a cold night when you are in the mood for tex mex comfort and there's no decent take out near you. I got this from Wendy on the Cooking Light board but I believe originally it appeared on Epicurious. It's been lightened...no reason doing the full fat when lightened tastes so good.
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.
Save this recipe, dear Zaar people for the day after Thanksgiving when you have a good amount of turkey leftover (either regular or smoked). Yes, another copycat recipe I stole. I was destined to lead a life of culinary crime I suppose.
