(aka: Bueller? Bueller? *tap tap* Is this thing on?)

In what could rightly be an addendum to yesterday's post, I'm going to talk about my dinner last night. Lately I've had the biggest craving for enchiladas. Chicken enchiladas. Like the ones my mom used to make. So I got her to send me the recipe, then fiddled with the recipe a bit, and wha-la!

Chicken Enchiladas a la Megan (& Megan's Mommy)!

2 good sized chicken breasts (boneless, skinless)
3 - 4 scallions or green onions, chopped
grated cheese to taste*
1 tbsp chilli powder or 1/2 tsp A Taste of Thai, Red Curry Paste (which I had left from another meal, and is so good and flavorful)
1 tsp garlic powder
pepper to taste

1 can cream of chicken soup
1 cup (give or take) sour cream
1 handful grated cheese*
1 tsp garlic powder
1 tsp. chilli powder
pepper to taste

* I used one bag of grated cheddar for this recipe, between the insides, outsides, etc of the enchiladas.

1. Preheat oven to somewhere between 375 and 400.
2. Mix all sauce ingrediants in a bowl until combined.
[Note: I left the chilli powder out last night because I wasn't sure about the heat from the curry paste on the chicken. It was good without, but next time I'll definitely add it.]
3. Spread a thin layer of sauce on the bottom of a 9” x 13” baking pan (glass pan is best).
4. Cut up chicken into small strips, add chilli powder/paste, garlic powder, and pepper. Cook until all pink is gone. Shread chicken with two forks.
5. Place chicken in flour tortilla. Sprinkle with cheeses and some scallions.

6. Fold sides in and then roll. Place seam down in pan.
7. Repeat until pan is filled with rolled enchiladas. Pour remaining sauce over top of pan. Add rest of cheese.

8. Bake at 400 degrees for about 20 minutes until bubbly and hot in the center. Sprinkle top with last of scallions and enjoy!

And just to demonstrate this dishes versatility... here is how Trav likes his:
(from left to right - sour cream, hot sauce, and salsa)

And how I like to enjoy mine:
(Straight from the oven!!) So dang good.

Well, I'm off and not sure when I'll be back... before, during, or after the weekend. We have an event tomorrow, and then events Monday - Wednesday of next week. Plus this weekend is my big walk weekend: 18 miles Saturday and 15 Sunday! On top of that we want to paint, and we're going to the Eagles vs Steelers game on Sunday. It will be a busy 6 days to say the least. I'll try to stop by with pictures and reports at some point... and in the meantime, feel free to leave me some comments (*hint, hint*) on any of my recent entries.

Well, off I go.
Later ya'll!
