Chicken Enchiladas are creamy and cheesy. The other day I cooked a turkey breast and I had some left over. So tonight when I got home from work, I hurried and put these chicken enchiladas together. I love how fast I had dinner on the table. They were so quick and easy.
I put a salad with them and dinner was perfect. I also have a recipe that you can add some salsa if you wanted to make it just a little spicier. I think that the jalapenos make them just right.

So I decided to work as a school days mom at a amusement park that is close to me so that I could get some passes to play this summer. The first thing that I discovered was that it wasn’t as easy as it was 10 years ago and the other thing is that I do not know where the days go.
It seems like I get up, go to work, come home, eat, and go to bed. I really don’t know how I use to have 5 kids at home and work. I do know that I use to get more done than I do now though. But it has been fun working with some other women who are doing the same thing. We are busy and when we go home we are good and tired!
What is an Enchilada?
- An enchilada is a corn tortilla rolled around a filling and covered with a savory sauce.
- Enchiladas can be filled with a variety of ingredients, including various meats, cheese, beans, potatoes, and vegetables.
I get to work in a place called Swig, and we sell pop with different flavors that you can add. We also sell cookies. Let me tell you those cookies sure look good. But I am not going to buy any because as soon as I do, I would want one every day. That is not a good idea. I did try one of the pops that had Sprite, peach flavoring and some coconut cream. Now that was good.
Also they are making a new candy shop and I got to go fill candy bins today. That was a lot of fun, and I am glad that I am not working there or my dentist bill would be very high!!!
What is the Difference Between Flour and Corn Tortillas?
So if you ask me if I am going to do it again next year? I will tell you the answer is no!! I keep telling myself that I am 30 years old, but my body keeps telling me that I am not telling the truth. Ha ha.
I read a saying that “having an imagination is more important than knowledge”. I say good, I will keep trying to have a better imagination, and one of these days when I wake up I will be able to jump out of bed instead of roll out. That is because I will keep imagining it! How about you try it and let me know if your imagination is better than mine.
Now imagine making these delicious chicken enchiladas. I know that you will be glad that you did, and your family will love you for it too. That is if they stick around long enough to eat it. I made mine and by the time I was finished, two of them had gotten away. Well, I guess they know what they are eating for dinner tomorrow. Ha ha. Have a wonderful day.
