Sour Cream Chicken Enchiladas

Hey everyone! It’s Madison from The Wetherills Say I Do again. I’m back with another one of our favorite recipes. Growing up in New Mexico, I’m used to having green chile on everything. If you’re wondering what I’m talking about, check out my green chile mac & cheese post from a while back. Okay, you back?

I love traditional enchiladas, you know, corn tortillas and that red enchilada sauce? In New Mexico, we do things a little differently and in my house, we do them even more different. I have always preferred flour tortillas to corn tortillas, so I really wanted to create a recipe that captured the heart and soul of enchiladas but with flour tortillas. Start with some shredded chicken, add sour cream and a bit of cream of chicken, top with green chile and shredded cheese and there you go!

This recipe is super easy to make. I almost always make shredded chicken using my crock pot. It’s so easy to throw everything in the pot before work and it’s all ready to go once you get home. I love it! You can also bake or boil your chicken and then shred, whatever is easiest for you. Because of the mixture of sour cream and cream of chicken soup, you wind up with a creamy and delicious combination to mix with your chicken.

Biscuits & Sausage Gravy

Hey y’all, its Madison from Wetherills Say I Do!  You can check out some of my older posts on My Cooking Spot here and here. I’d love for you to stop by my blog and check it out. I talk about things like marriage & weddings, recipes and DIY projects I love, and lessons learned in general.
What is your favorite meal of the day? Hands down mine is breakfast. I sometimes have a difficult time with breakfast though, because I don’t really eat eggs. When I was younger they made me sick to my stomach, so I’ve never really developed a taste for them. So when I stumble upon an amazing recipe for breakfast, I cherish it! 
This recipe originally comes from Steven’s dad. I posted a recipe for a Strawberry Jam Loaf from Steven’s aunt earlier, what can I say, I love family recipes! Steven’s dad made this recipe for us a few years ago. Before he made this recipe for us I had never really tried biscuits and gravy before. But man, I’m hooked now. One of the biggest benefits to this recipe is that it makes quite a bit, but sausage gravy freezes incredibly well, so you’re able to have it for a long time.

Green Chile Broccoli Mac & Cheese

Some might say it’s a little sad… but I really do love mac & cheese. I used to be all about the boxed stuff, but within the last few years, I’ve really taken to finding some delicious and creative recipes that take mac & cheese to a whole ‘nother level.

Just to give you an idea of how good this mac and cheese is, I made this pan full on Monday night, it was gone by Wednesday at lunch. And there were only two of us eating it. It’s still mac and cheese so I won’t go promising that it’s completely healthy, but you can at least feel good about knowing exactly what you’re eating, which is something you can’t say about the boxed stuff.

 

Alright, you might be thinking, broccoli and cheese, I get that. But green chile? Let me back up. I’m from New Mexico, where we put green chile on everything. I’m not talking about chili you see at a cook off or chili peppers from the produce section, I’m talking about THE New Mexico state vegetable. It’s a type of pepper only grown in New Mexico because of the extreme dessert climate. It can be used similarly to jalapeños or more like a salsa that goes on top of different food. New Mexicans eat it on everything, from breakfast eggs to chicken enchiladas at dinner. I’ve had green chile mac and cheese many a time at a local restaurant.

The broccoli, green chile, and bread crumb topping add so much complexity to a relatively simple dish! Each bite has a totally different consistency, based on whichever combination of ingredients you get. Green chiles are known to be spicy, although I didn’t find the canned green chiles to be spicy at all. If you aren’t crazy about spice, you might skip the green chiles. But if you love it, I might recommend two cans of the chiles, so there is enough for the whole dish.

Strawberry Jam Loaf

With Valentine’s Day right around the corner, now is a perfect time for all things sweet! This Strawberry Jam Loaf is just that and with hints of pink and red, it’s a perfect Valentine’s Day treat. You could make this recipe as mini muffins for your little ones or send a dozen of these off to a neighbor or coworker.

I love a fresh loaf of bread out of the oven and I am always trying to find new variations. I found this recipe in my mother-in-law’s recipe box and it sounded too good not to try! The recipe originally comes from my husband’s aunt. Trying new recipes is so fun, especially when you know they are family favorites!

The ingredients for this recipe are so simple and you probably have most of them in your house already! The only things I had to get from the store were cream of tartar and strawberry preservatives. I’m not a huge nut fan, so I didn’t use the optional pecans. [Read more…]
