The Great 2012 Cooking Extravaganza! Day 106

Hello again friends, and welcome back!  Hope your week is starting out well!!

Monday is supposed to be scout night, but William asked if we could take just this one week off, since his birthday is tomorrow, and I decided that he deserves it, he’s been an awesome kid recently.  And to be completely honest, my shoulder/neck is killing me, and I was looking for an excuse!

But, I had a productive day despite my pain in the neck! LOL!!  Four loads of laundry, cleaned up the kitchen, made some more new jewelry (maybe sitting hunched over the table working on jewelry is why my neck hurts?!),

and still managed to make a nice dinner.  I’ll admit it’s kind of a repeat, but I’m perfecting the recipe, and it was SO much better this time around!  And lots of photos, so you can follow along very easily:

Chicken Enchiladas

3 large boneless skinless chicken breasts

2 quarts water

1 packet chicken Flavor Boost by Swanson

1/2 cup Tone’s taco seasoning

1 1/2 cups salsa

2 cups salsa

1 x 4 cup package shredded cheese of choice (I used cheddar/monterey jack blend this time)

1 pkg soft flour tortillas, soft taco size (8 tortillas)

Place chicken, water, Flavor Boost and taco seasoning in crock pot, cook on LOW at least 8 hours.

Remove chicken from pot, shred and place in bowl.

Line baking pan with tin foil, spray foil with olive oil cooking spray.  Set aside.

Place 1 1/2 cups salsa in blender and LIQUIFY, add to chicken, mix well.

Set out tortillas, place 1/8th of chicken mixture on each one, top with about 1/8 cup shredded cheese, roll and place in pan.

Place 2 cups salsa in blender and LIQUIFY, pour over rolled tortillas in pan, spread with spatula so that they are all covered.  Top with all remaining cheese.

Bake at 350 degrees for 30-40 minutes, or until cheese is well melted.  Serve!  You can serve with sour cream if you have it, or drizzle over a little ranch dressing, that’s really yummy!


These go really well with a nice fresh salad, and you can follow with Tres Leche cake if you happen to have time to make one.  We just happen to have leftovers, YUM!!!

Hope you enjoy this one, I know we did!  Until tomorrow, eat well, love well, live well!!

    WOW! Sounds like a good day all around. And the dinner looks wonderful. Are you shure you don’t want to be a chef when you grow up?
