A change from chicken enchiladas. Be a maniac! Adjust the "maniac" ingredients to whatever you like(that's why it's called maniac); add the full cup of sour cream for creamier filling. Adults and kids love this!
This has got to be one of the simplest ways to make this yummy dish! And it's virtually mess free! These rellenos can be fried in oil or baked in the oven, depending on how you like it. If you like Mexican but don't like spicy stuff, you might like this. The canned green chilies don't tend to be very hot. Also use mild to hot salsa, depending on your family's taste. Great served with traditional refried beans and rice.
Every once in a great while, Emeril impresses me with a dish. This was one of them. This one looked SO incredibly good and rich. The cheese sauce I think was what got to me. I just can't get enough of a good cheese sauce. There are a ton of ingredients, but don't let that keep you from fixing these up. It does make quite a bit, but they'll probably go fast. Be sure to set around some salsa or pico, sour cream, jalapeños, and watch 'em disappear! NOTE: I condensed the directions down and left out the Pico recipe included. I can't eat pico, but feel free to use your favorite recipe or your favorite salsa.
I LOVE Cooks Illustrated and I buy the magazine often. This is my favorite Chicken Fajita recipe. The only change I made was doubling the marinade so I can have extra juices for the chicken and veggies to soak in after they're cooked- it makes them even juicier! Hope you like it as much as I do. I also cheat by using a George Foreman Grill, where they suggest grilling it over charcoal.
Home-made corn tortillas! Great for home-made corn chips, enchiladas, tacos, quesadillas--everything! A money-saver too, considering how much chips and store-bough tortillas can be. Prep time includes 30 minutes "sitting time."
I found that these are a great way to get a bit more fish into our diet, plus they taste great. And by not frying the fish, these are pretty healthy, depending on your toppings. I love topping them with a mango or pineapple salsa and homemade coleslaw.
Everyone loves this recipe, even those who think they don't like tofu! I tend to go a little light on the tofu and a little heavy on the cream cheese, and I put some or all of the optional cheddar cheese in the enchiladas as opposed to on top. I recommend light tofu, as it has a lighter flavor as well as being lower in fat. I also tend to process all of the tofu as opposed to half of it. Prep time is an estimate. Sauces are posted separately. From Crescent Dragonwagon's Passionate Vegetarian.
To save time, I oven-bake breaded or battered frozen fish (but if we had a deep fryer, I'd probably use it). I slice cabbage very thin, it works better for the tacos than shredded cabbage. Add your favorite tortillas, and you have an easy, crunchy, and great tasting meal. Prep time is just for making the sauce.
I have adopted this recipe as I have made it quite often, Original into: Made this up one day and it is so good I thought I would post it. I marinated my halibut for 2 hours in Mariel's Amazing Salad Dressing recipe #106449 - this is optional.
A fast and healthier way to serve Chimichangas than the traditional deep fried. These are very good, and you may dress them up to you own preference. I like to serve with green chile sauce sometimes instead of the picante sauce.
