Tina's Enchiladas

Each week my goal is to try and make one new recipe that I have not made before.  This helps me keep my diet more diverse, since I am a creature of habit and do eat many of the same things! Plus, I hope to keep improving my cooking skills 🙂

Tonight I made Tina’s Chicken Enchiladas.  I changed it up by using lean turkey breast instead of chicken breast since that’s what I had on hand.  This morning I put the turkey in the crock pot, along with 1 can of chicken broth, and cooked on low for about 5 hours.  I then shredded the turkey with two forks.   On my lunch break, I assembled the enchiladas so that when I got home all I had to do was bake em’!  (Of course while the grub baked I snacked on some oh-so-yummy Sabra garlic hummus and crackers…I’m addicted!)

Tina’s Enchiladas

Ingredients:

  • 1 lb chicken breasts (I used turkey)
  • 1/2 – 3/4 c low fat sourcream
  • 12 oz green enchilada sauce (1/2 the big can or 1 small can)
  • 1 small can 98% fat free cream of chicken soup
  • 1 small can diced green chilies
  • 1c shredded low fat mexican or cheddar cheese
  • 10-12 corn tortillas

Directions:

Mix shredded turkey with about 1/2 c – 3/4 c sour cream.  Mix together enchilad sauce, green chilies, and cream of chicken soup, pour 1/3 of the mixture on the bottom of a baking pan and set the rest aside.

Place some of the turkey mixture in a tortilla, roll, and place in a baking pan.  Continue rolling the desired amount of enchiladas (I made 6). Top the enchiladas with the remaining sauce and sprinkle cheese on top.

Bake at 350 for about 20-25 minutes.

These enchiladas totally hit the spot tonight!

I will defintely be using this recipe again! Thanks Tina! 🙂 

My plate…with some sour cream on the side!

These bad boys were delicious and filling..but I still had room for dessert  😉 I had some chocolate Greek Yogurt (confession: I had two! haha, I think they’ve grown on me!).  While I snacked, my dogs were playin’ and wrestlin’ around the living room!

Lemme’ at  her!

**Have you tried any new recipes lately?**

  7. Wow, u have such a great blog. I found you through Lisa. You seem so much fun.
    I used to be a competitive runner a few years ago…unfortunately lots of stuff in my life have lead to me now being unable to do much. I hope that in future, if my health and energy improve, I might be able to do more again.

    Your job sounds like fun.
