Tasty and fast

We had green chile chicken enchiladas for dinner last night. They're so easy and very tasty. The recipe is on the side of the can of Old El Paso green chile enchilada sauce, and the basic ingredients are chicken, cream cheese, a can of the green chile sauce, and soft flour tortillas. You cook the chicken in a skillet, then add the cream cheese and most of the sauce and cook until bubbly, and then fill the tortillas and place them in a casserole dish, pour the remaining sauce on top, sprinkle with some cheese, and bake half an hour. I've made these several times lately because I love Mexican food and it's so easy. I've also been experimenting with black beans, corn, and rice lately. I cook the rice, add it to the beans and corn, and use the mixture along with cheese and salsa to stuff some tortillas. I've been on a big black bean kick for months. I love them.

If I cooked, I'd totally cook that. But, I only have a kitchen because it came with the house.

Yum! That sounds good. I made an enchilada casserole tonight using a box kit lol and beef. It was deeeeeelicious! Like a Mexican lasagna.

Hey I think our kids are the same ages. I've got one turning 2 in April and one turning 4 in May.

Yes, they're the same ages, Elisa. We're prepping for a big birthday party for Baby Boy. The enchilada casserole with beef sounds good too. We're big beef eaters here.
