I was looking for something fun and easy on "Movie Night" and threw this together with really yummy results. Add a salad and/or rice and you've got a meal. Note: Measurements are not exact--I just "eyeballed" the whole thing.
You know the John Wayne Chile Relleno casserole? The rich, eggy, cheesy one that everyone always loves? Well - it's yummy but it's fattening! Here's a delicious lower fat variation that yields a similar casserole with no guilt! Utilizes reduced fat cheese, sour cream and egg substitute for pretty darn good results!
The cream cheese is the star in these enchiladas... I've never met a person who didn't enjoy these and they are so simple to put together. You can cook your chicken breasts for these anyway you want... I recommend putting a chili powder/garlic rub on them and baking them. You can also boil them in water and garlic salt, but the baking produces tender, flavorful chicken! Toss in some red pepper flakes to the chicken/cheese mixture for some heat!! Can't beat it! Recently I didn't have a can of the green sauce on hand, and had a crisper full of tomatillos! I made Recipe #51630 and WOW it was super. It takes of course a little more work and effort but it was really good. If you like tomatillos, give it a try when you have some extra time on hand.
Craving Mexican? Tasty shredded chicken in sauce will leave you craving more. This recipe will make enough to leave you with leftovers! It reheats well too...in fact I think it gets better with time...
This recipe comes from Denver Fire Fighters Favorites cookbook published in 1976. This is a quick and very tasty dish and you can increase ingredients to make a larger batch, if needed. It's always been a big seller in my house.
I love this recipe. I got it from the Taste of Home web site, it was a recipe submitted to them by Diane Witmer of Spencer, Wisconsin. I added 1 extra can of green chilies, used Monterey Pepper Jack, Cheddar cheese and used 10 in flour tortillas. This was creamy, cheesy, just wonderful!
I found this recipe in a magazine a couple of years ago and it is a favorite at our house. We love cream cheese so I usually add a bit more than what the recipe calls for. The original recipe says you can double it and freeze one pan for up to 90 days. I haven't tried that but if you do, let me know how it turns out.
Having grown up with these, I didn't realize that most folks have never heard of a wet burrito. It is a meat and bean (or all meat or all bean) burrito with a spicy gravy and cheese on top. They are available here in many restaurants, and no self respecting bar would be without one on the menu, lol! Once you try them, you'll never go back to "dry" burritos again! Don't let the long list of directions scare you, these are easy!
