Our Chicken Enchiladas
Since this is the first post of the blog, I thought I'd start with a nostalgic one. This is the first meal that Seth ever cooked for me so whenever I think about these enchiladas, I smile. When Seth and I had first started dating, he suggested that he would come over and we could cook dinner together. This chicken enchilada recipe is one of the ways he stole my heart. I was so impressed by how thoughtful he was to go to the store and get all the ingredients and then of course, I thought it was kinda sexy the way he took charge in the kitchen. I hope you enjoy!
Seth's "First Date" Chicken Enchiladas Recipe
2 chicken breasts, shredded and chilled
1 12 oz. botttle of Trader Joes red enchilada sauce
1 pkg. Blue corn tortillas
1 c. sharp cheddar cheese, shredded
1/2 c. scallions, chopped
In a 9x13 casserole dish, layer the bottom of the dish with enchilada sauce.
Place a small handful of chicken into each tortilla and roll them up, place them in the pan with the seam facing down.
Pour enchilada sauce over top of the rolled tortillas and sprinkle with cheese
Bake in the oven at 350 degrees for 20-25 minutes, uncovered.
