    2Bleu's Note:

    Sittin around the campfire one night, RickyMac of the McDaniel gang told us a story of how one day Johnny went down to the swimmin hole and was having fun all day swingin from the rope tree into the water, cowboy boots and all!. Well, that last dip he come up from the water with the strangest look on his face. He yelled "There's a snake in my boot!" He jumped outta them boots and took off runnin like a chicken. He run so fast, he run right through a field of cilantro. When he came into a clearing, feeling safe at last, he stopped, looked down at his feet, and said "Look!, I got Cilan-toes! Hence: This Chicken with Cilan-toes recipe was born!

      This was very enjoyable and nice that it came together quickly. I liked the zing from the extra jalapeno, which added to the already-spicy sauce I used made us reach for the beers! It was a little too creamy for me - I might reduce the cream cheese/sour cream just a bit next time, but overall very satisfying.

      Great tasting enchiladas. My favorite herb cilantro added just the right flavor for this dish. I think 30 minutes may be enough cooking time if your oven temp is accurate.

      DS made these, one pan with jalapenos and one pan without for the sensitive-tongued one in our family. The family chowed down on the zippy ones, which are absolutely delicious, creamy in the middle, fork-soft and cheesy. Made for PRMR and thoroughly enjoyed.
