White chicken enchiladas are my favorite.  Years ago I found a great recipe for them in my Better Homes and Gardens Cook Book (this cookbook has been around since 1930!)  The recipe has one ingredient in it that I thought was a little odd. Maybe I just don’t know enchilada recipes very well but I had never seen one with almonds before.  They add a little something special to the flavor and texture of these delicious enchiladas.

Ingredients

1/4 Cup slivered almonds
1/4 Cup chopped onions
2 Tbsp butter or margarine
1 4oz can diced green chile peppers, drained
1 3 oz package cream cheese, softened
1 Tbsp milk
1/4 tsp ground cumin
2 Cups chopped cooked chicken
12 7 inch flour tortillas or 6 inch corn tortillas
1 10 3/4 ounce can condensed cream of chicken or cream of mushroom soup
1 8oz carton of sour cream
1 cup milk
3/4 Cup shredded Monterey Jack or Cheddar Cheese (3 oz)

Directions

  1.  In a frying pan, cook the almonds, butter and onion over medium heat until the onion is tender and the nuts are lightly toasted.  Remove from heat and add 2 T. green chile peppers.  Reserve the remaining chile peppers for the sauce.chicken enchiladas
  2. In a medium bowl, combine cream cheese, 1T milk and ground cumin.  Add nut mixture and chicken.  Stir until combined.  Spoon about 3 T. of the mixture onto each tortilla and roll up.  Place seam side down in a greased rectangular baking dish.  Set aside.chicken enchiladas
  3. For sauce, combine remaining chile peppers, soup, sour cream and 1 cup milk.  Pour evenly over the tortillas.  Cover dish with foil and bake in preheated oven at 350 degrees for  about 35 minutes or until heated through.  Remove foil, sprinkle with cheese and return to oven to make for 5 minutes more or until cheese melts.chicken enchiladas

 

 

Sometimes I used a cooked rotisserie chicken from the grocery store instead of cooking my own chicken.  Just pull the meat off and shred it!  Otherwise I boil the chicken until cooked through then shred it.  Both are very easy methods!  These enchiladas are very mild and kid-friendly!  Every time I’ve served them to guests, I’ve gotten compliments.  It’s a perfect recipe for fall so give it a try and let me know what you think!

fruigees flavors
I hear some parents say “Oh, my Mathew LOVES vegetables!”  Humph.  I’m not one of those parents.  My kids like many others don’t enjoy eating veggies.  I have to get a little more creative to get my kids to consume vegetables and to be honest, it can be kind of exhausting.  That’s where Fruigees come in.  David Czinn, a 26 year old entrepreneur and his cousin Josh created a fruit snack in a squeeze pack that is fun to eat and tastes good too.  Yes, it’s a fruit snack, but each pack also contains vegetables.  In fact each one is made with 1/2 cup of fruits and veggies.
Fruigees is a unique product with the consistency similar to pudding.  It’s organic, vegan and non-GMO certified.  Flavors include 24 Carrot Orange (Orange-Carrot), Nothing Beets Cherry (Cherry-Beet) and Kalefornia Grape (Grape-Kale).  Each 3.5 oz fat-free squeeze pack contains only 70 calories and 100% of your daily value of Vitamin C.
I have to admit, I was skeptical of these at first.  They just didn’t sound good to me.  My kids, on the other hand think anything in a squeeze pouch HAS to be good.  And so far they’ve been right!  I never got a whole pouch to myself but I did try each of them, shared somewhat unwillingly by my children — and they were good!  I especially liked the 24 Carrot Orange Flavor.  My kids didn’t seem to have a preference and liked them all equally.  They begged to have one everyday until they were gone.  They made great snacks for after or before sports practices!  They could just grab them and eat them in the car with no mess!
These guys are genius!  You can find out more at www. fruigees.com.
