enchiladas4

Happy Monday my friends!
Isn’t summer going by way too fast?!
Because I work in Education, my summer comes to a rather screeching halt come August, so I am woke up this morning in a bit of a panic…
Luckily my little jog along a country road lined with corn swaying in the wind, birds screeching in the air, and wildflowers tickling the street really gave me a little bit of zen to start my week.
And breathing in the clean, crisp, country air, certainly didn’t hurt.
I just starting jogging and I am so horrible at it-frankly I am slow as molasses, but it does make me feel good, so I will keep plugging along….
You-Keep plugging along as well
enchiladas
-and dive into this super creamy, super easy enchilada dish!
Hugs,
Bree

Here’s What You Need:  (Serves 4)
3/4 lb of chicken tenders, cut into bite size pieces
4 Wedges of Laughing Cow Queso Fresco Chipotle
1 jar of salsa verde* (about 16oz)
Tortillas (I used corn)
Shredded cheese (Cheddar or a Mexican blend)
Queso fresco (optional)
Cilantro (optional)
1/2 zucchini or yellow squash, cut into bite size pieces
Extra virgin olive oil
Taco seasoning (I like Penzey’s Bold)

Here’s What You Do:
Preheat the oven to 375. Preheat a pan over medium high heat. Add the chicken seasoned with the taco seasoning and cook for about 6 minutes, turning once. Toss in the Laughing Cow, breaking into pieces, along with the squash. Cook for two more minutes. Spread the bottom of pyrex or baking dish with about half of the salsa. Fill each tortilla with the chicken mixture and then roll tightly.

Place seamside down into the baking dish. Top with the remaining salsa and press down so that all the tortillas are covered in salsa. Sprinkle lightly with the cheese. I recommend covering it for baking until about the last 5 minutes. (Loosely so the cheese doesn’t stick). Bake for about 15 minutes.

Grate queso fresco over the top and add fresh cilantro. Serve with dollops of ff Greek plain yogurt.

*I recommend choosing a very mild salsa if you want your kids to eat the enchiladas. Otherwise, save some plain cooked chicken for your kids along with tortillas or quesadillas. These may be more kid friendly options!

Kid Tip:
Cut this into little pieces to give your kids or if you have picky ones like mine, give them pieces of chicken with tortillas on the side.
