Easy Chicken & Cheese Enchiladas
This was a snappy meal to fix and the kids loved how creamy it was and it had just enough kick for me and the hubs. I love it when the recipes don't call for that many ingredients! I also took the pic, before I topped it with the ingredients. My kids were starving so I had to hurry and snap the picture quick. Hopefully next time the picture will be much better!
You'll need: -1 can cream of chicken soup $.88 (on sale at case lot) -1/2 c. sour cream $.56 -1 c. pace picante salsa (I used my own bottled salsa) $free -2 tsp. chili powder $.10 -2 c. cooked chicken, chopped (about 2 chicken breasts) $1.50 -1/2 c. monterey jack cheese $.50 (bought on sale for $1) -6 flour tortillas, warmed $.60 (again bought on sale when pkgs were $1) -1 tomato, chopped $free from garden -1 green onion, chopped $free from garden Total: $4.14
Directions: -Preheat oven to 350. -Stir the soup, sour cream, picante & chili pwd. in a bowl with the cooked chicken. Spoon it into the tortillas, then top the mix with some cheese. -Roll tortilla up and put in a 9x9 pan. -Spoon remaining mixture on top of the rolled up tortillas. Then top that with cheese. -Cover pan with tin foil. -Bake for 40 min. Top with the chopped tomato and onion. *I served this with fresh corn on the cob from the garden and some steamed squash and zucchini from the garden. We were stuffed! *This should serve about 6 very hungry people.
