Quick and easy…Chicken Enchilada Skillet.
The Holiday Season is here, with all of it’s crazy, busy, hustle and bustle. So, why not make dinner a snap? Chicken Enchilada Skillet is just that dinner.
Tim and I love enchiladas, but lets face it, they are kinda a pain to make……all that dipping, stuffing, and rolling……..not to mention the baking time.
So, lets deconstruct them and make it easy on ourselves, but still have the same great taste.
I have a breakfast recipe Fiesta Egg Skillet, that I got from one of those little cookbooks that are in the checkout lane at all the grocery stores. Continue reading “Chicken Enchilada Skillet”

Spring Break……….a whole week of sunshine and spring like temperatures………if you live somewhere other than Northern Illinois. Woke up this morning to, you guessed it, more snow. The wind is blowing ninety miles an hour and it actually hurts your skin………that should not be happening on March 25th………..just saying!
So, since the weather is, well what it is, I have more time to cook. Tim and I have a mild affliction to Mexican food.
When we started dating again, we frequented a Mexican restaurant called La Mex, and when we dated all those years ago……for the story check out the Poor Mans Lobster post, we went to an Irish bar called Kelly’s that is still serving the best Mexican food.
For me, I still remember with longing, two places where my Mexican food affliction began. One was a place whose name I cannot for the life of me remember, but I remember the burritos ………….they were to die for. If anyone can enlighten me on the name, it was below the Poison Apple Disco, which eventually became Waldo Stubbs. My girlfriends and I would go to the Disco early to get a table, then go downstairs to have a bite to eat before the dancing began. But, alas it closed.
Enter Mexican restaurant #2……….Vince’s Taco Inn. Awww the memories. After a night of partying, when you really needed something to eat, the Mexican food at Vince’s was just the ticket. It was a small, quaint, little hole in the wall…….you know one of those local iconic places. The food was awesome, and it was amazing how many of us could fit in one of their booths.

Well if you are a Football fan……..I am not………shhhh…don’t tell anyone. But Tim…….all I can say is if it’s about sports he’s about it. I don’t know about sports, but I do know what to serve to those who are…….Chicken Enchilada Meatballs of course. I mean it really is the best of two things that I love, Mexican food and Meatballs. With all the upcoming games you really must have those go to party foods. Bonus for these since they are made with ground chicken they are much healthier that the traditional BBQ kind.
