Enchiladas Anyone?

I got this recipe several years ago from my friend Melinda. We were helping with a baby shower and several of us were asked to bring this recipe for enchiladas. I made them and I was hooked. I love to make this for dinner guest.

I make this recipe using chicken most of the time, but I have also done it with hamburger meat and with boiled shrimp. They are all good. My favorite is the shrimp. You could just fill them with shredded cheese and use no meat at all.

3 chicken breasts-boil and shred or chop them.
Then mix the following ingredients in a large sauce pan:

1 lb sharp cheddar cheese shredded
1 can cream of mushroom soup
3 cans cream of chicken soup
8 oz. sour cream
3 Tbs salsa
1 can chopped green chilis
garlic salt and pepper to taste

Just warm all this. DO NOT let it boil.
Use a large baking dish (9x13) sprayed with cooking spray. Fill about 8 flour tortillas with chicken first and then sauce mixture. You will have LOTS of sauce left over. Pour all of this over the tortillas and bake at 350 for 40 minutes.

Several years ago I made this for a friend. She asked me for the recipe several months later. I gave it to her over the phone. Keep in mind she is not too much of a cook. She called me one day and told me the enchiladas were a big disaster and they could not eat them. She went on to say that she had to use a whole bag of tortillas and 4 baking dishes. She missed the part about pouring the left over sauce on top of it all. She said that they were so hard and dry that they nearly broke their teeth. Just keep that in mind! I think of her every time I make this recipe.
I hope you will enjoy this.
Some have asked me to post the roast recipe again. It can be found in my November 9th post titled "Something Good to Eat"


The roast recipe was fabulous! We had it Christmas day!
I can't wait to try this one.
I've tried 2 new recipes this week that have bombed...maybe the 3rd times the charm?

The "Mississippi Roast" recipe is going around here in my little world like wild-fire. Oh yes, I have facebook friends in Canada and in Portland, OR and sundry places who are also hooked. I told them they MUST refer to it as "Mississippi Roast". ha ha.

Now, Arkansas enchiladas?

Jennifer said…
I have made the roast twice and we have loved it both times! I can't wait to make these enchiladas.
Michelle said…
Yum, this sounds similiar to my "Chicken Durango" I make often, only instead of salsa and sour cream, you add Rotel tomatoes (and layer sauce, meat, cheese, and tortillas like a lasagna)- it's scrumptious! LOVE your idea for adding shrimp instead. This will be the next meal I prepare! Thank you. :)

I made it last night it was yummy!

I am so behind in getting back to this post to leave a comment.

I have to tell you that the very day you posted this, I was having some serious cravings for enchiladas. Serious cravings! I read it late in the afternoon, about the time I needed to be starting dinner. When I realized that I had EVERYTHING I needed to make your enchiladas, I got right to work getting them made and in the oven.

These were absolutely delicious!!! I am so, so thankful you posted this recipe. Thank you!!!

Maybe I am wrong, but I don't remember life being so complicated when I was in middle school. Everything is so competitive now.  Maybe it was back then and I just didn't realize it. Sarah Kate started playing city league softball a couple of weeks ago.   We've been encouraged to get her private batting lessons. When I was in third grade I started playing softball and I just did it for fun!  No stress at all, as far as I can remember!  I just played.  I wasn't very good, but I liked it! Ha! Emily started band this year!  Before school started, I got a letter from the school district strongly encouraging "your band student to take instrument lessons."  WHAT?  I bought into it and got Emily private clarinet lessons (which she really enjoys)! But, what happened to learning as you go?  I never thought about taking private trumpet lessons when I started band. It seems like most parents are striving for their child to be THE BEST.  I guess that's a go

Something Good to Eat

Ever since Steve and I started dating, when we would go to Mississippi, his aunt would make the BEST ROAST IN THE WORLD!!!!!!!!!!! Steve's Dad's side of the family gets together at his Granny's house for lunch every Sunday after church. The food is always sooo good!!!!!!!!!!!! I have always taken a liking to his Aunt Judy's roast. It really is the best roast I have ever had. When we were there on Labor Day weekend, my sister in law asked Aunt Judy for the recipe. Aunt Judy began naming all the ingredients. She said Ranch Dressing mix, and I bugged my eyes out and nearly chocked. I HATE RANCH DRESSING. I don't even like to be in the room with it. I had to focus on the word MIX....not the mayo and butter milk and sour cream that you add to it. Just typing those words makes me shudder. The recipe sounded awful as she rattled off the ingredients, but I promise, you have got to make this if you like a good roast. Trust me on this. Here it is: Get a tender chuck

Life in Pictures!

Emily is enjoying her first year in band.  I am very impressed with her playing skill! Sarah Kate was recently awarded the empathy award at her school.  She is very deserving of this! Here we are before the Cotillion Holly Ball.
