Simply delicious

Here is a very easy recipe for a delicious meal. I made this last evening and it was so good.

"Creamy Chicken Enchiladas"

To make the recipe even simpler, I used canned chicken.

Creamy Chicken Enchiladas
Prep: 15 min. Cook: 25 min.

2-1/2 cups chopped cooked chicken
1 can cream of chicken soup (10-3/4oz.)
1 cup sour cream (divided)
2 cups shredded colby & monterey jack cheese (divided)
1/4 cup chopped cilantra (divided)
12 (8-inch) flour tortilllas
1-1/2 cups salsa

Mix chicken, soup, 1/2 cup sour cream, 1 cup cheese, and 3 tbsp. cilantra. Spoon about 1/4 cup chicken mixture down center of each tortilla; roll up. Place seam side down in greased 13x9 inch baking dish. Top with salsa and remaining cheese. Bake at 350 degrees for 25 min. Sprinkle with remaining cilantro, top with remaining sour cream. Makes 6 servings.

I cut the recipe in half, but I added a bit more cheese and sour cream.

I added a chopped lettuce salad on the side with a dab of sour cream and chopped cilantro on top.




And for dessert........


J-e-l-l-o




How simple can that be?

Jello brings back wonderful memories of my childhood. My mom and I would make jello and a cake every Saturday. That way we would have jello for dessert on Saturday and a cake for dessert on Sunday.

I still have one of the old jello paperback cookbooks. Jello is such a fun dessert and it's light, plain and simple.

Simply delicious!

Enjoy your day everyone!

That really looks delicious and I totally believe it tasted delicious as well.;)

Donna, this looks SO good! Yum! And jello is the original comfort food. I always liked strawberry jello, and I just LOVE congealed salads... cranberry and nuts at Christmas and tomato aspic for ladies parties. We used to have the latter all the time growing up, but I don't see it served much any more. It's a shame, too, because it's delicious!

Congratulations on your award! I've enjoyed reading your blog this morning. :-)

Sue said...

Hi Donna....I like to think of myslef as a pretty good cook and baker...I've been at it since I was a teen...My husband likes to remind me all the time that I can't make jello like his mother...How can you possible screw up jello...plus I think it's the only thing she knew how to make...

Pat @ Mille Fiori Favoriti said...

Hi Donna

Mmmmm...your enchiladas look so good!

The January Country Living magazine did a piece about old product cookbooks and said Jello ones were the most popular to collect, and got the highest prices on auction because of nostalgia, so you may have a valuable antique!

Congrats on your award -- that's a very sweet one!

Hugs, Pat

PS - My daughter is feeling a lot better and was able to go back to work - thanks!

Jenny said...

Congrats on the award, Donna!

And, omigosh! That looks amazing! Now I know what to do with that frozen chicken!!

You couldn't be more right on the Jello ... which reminds me - it's been awhile since we enjoyed that in our home.

Thanks for the great recipe and tips!

Blessings,
Jenny
