Recipes

As promised, here are a few of our favorites!

Chicken Enchiladas
4-6 chicken breasts (boneless skinless)
1 onion, chopped
1 clove garlic, minced
1 small can green chilies
16 oz tomato sauce
1 pound Monterey jack cheese, grated
12 flour tortillas (or as many as it takes)
1 pint whipping cream
Optional toppings:
Sour cream, salsa, guacamole, sliced olives, refried beans
*Boil chicken and cut into bite size pieces or shred. In separate pan, sauté onion, garlic, and chilies in oil. Add tomato sauce and chicken to onion mixture. Simmer 15 minutes. Dip flour tortillas in whipping cream (I pour it in a pie tin and dip tortillas in that) Fill with chicken mixture and top with cheese. Roll up and place in 9x13 pan. Pour remaining cream on top and sprinkle with leftover cheese. Bake at 350 for 30 minutes or until brown and bubbly.
