Chicken Enchiladas

My friend Tracy made this recipe at a party I attended  several years ago, and it was delicious! She was kind enough to share it with me so I could pass it along.

This is not an authentic Mexican recipe, but a delicious Tex-Mex style dish.

And isn't this baking dish gorgeous? Well, I miss it. My wonderful hubs put it on the stove (which had a hot burner going) and it cracked in two- right down the middle.  😔I miss this dish! 

Give this recipe a  try and put some smiles on some hungry faces.


4 cups chicken (cooked and diced)
1 small red onion, chopped (optional)
1 cup shredded Mexican blend cheese
3/4 can enchilada sauce

Mix altogether and fill 8 lg. tortillas and roll up.

Put in a 13X9 baking dish.

Pour another 1 1/4 cup enchilada sauce over top. Sprinkle with mixture of

1/8 tsp. cayenne pepper
1/8 tsp. Cajun spices

Top with 1 cup of cheese.

Bake at 400 degrees for 15-18 min.

Serve warm with sour cream.

Are you ready for this? 3 ingredient Croissant Bread Pudding (a repost)

Here's a SIMPLE, yet MOTHER'S DAY Worthy recipe that even kids can make!

Yep! You heard me correctly. Only three ingredients- but tastes like you really fussed.

Mom made this the other day- just whipped it up and it was so good and so easy. Just had to share it.

She said the original recipe called for chocolate croissants, but she couldn't find them, so she went with the regular.

Of course, a traditional bread pudding from scratch can't be beat- but this is very good- especially considering it only requires 3 ingredients.

Perfect to serve as a special breakfast, or brunch or a dessert.

You will need:

4 ( 4 oz. ) Croissants
2 pkgs. ( 3oz. each) Cook and Serve Vanilla pudding and pie filling.
4 cups whole milk

Heat oven to 350 degrees. Grease 3 qt. shallow baking dish. Whisk pudding mix and milk in bowl till thoroughly blended. Cut croissants into 1 " pieces. Arrange in baking dish. Pour pudding mixture over croissants. Push bread down into liquid to make sure it is covered. Bake for 50 minutes(till bubbly around edges or knife inserted in center comes out clean).

Let cool 10 minutes before serving.
