(A family favorite!)
Serves 8 - 10 people
Preheat oven to 350 degrees
4 or 5 skinless, boneless chicken breast halves (or even easier, a cooked chicken from the store!)
1 onion, chopped
1 clove garlic, minced or 2 tbsp of garlic from the jar
1 cup sour cream
2 cups mixed shredded cheddar & jack cheeses (or the "Mexican Blend" from the store)
1 tbsp dried cilantro or 1 bunch fresh cilantro, chopped
1/4 teaspoon ground black pepper
1 tbsp paprika
2 jars (about 3 cups) of your favorite green salsa (Target sells a good mild one by Archway Farms. Sometimes I make mine, because mild green salsa can be difficult to find, or you could use red salsa instead---but then, drop the "verde" from the name!)
1 bell pepper, chopped. (optional)
12 – 14 corn tortillas
1. In a large, non-stick skillet over medium heat, simmer chicken until no longer pink and juices run clear. (or bake or boil 20 – 30 minutes) Drain excess fat.
2. Dice or shred the chicken and return it to the skillet. Add the onion, garlic, sour cream, 1 cup of the cheese mixture, cilantro, paprika and pepper. Heat until cheese melts. Stir in ½ of the salsa and bell pepper.
3. After coating the bottom of a 9x13 inch baking dish with a little of the salsa, roll even amounts (about 1/3 of a cup) of the mixture into tortillas and arrange them in the dish (I do two columns of 6, with the last 2 wedged in between the columns.)
4. Cover with at least ½ jar of salsa (1 cup) and as much of the remaining cheese mixture as you like. (I use all of it!) Bake uncovered in the preheated oven 20 -25 minutes.
SUPER EASY German Potato Salad
(I get a lot of requests for this one!)
10 red potatoes, cut into bite-size pieces & boiled until tender
1/2 large red onion, or 1 whole small onion, chopped
2 tablespoons of dried dill
Thousand Island dressing (to taste) I like my salad "juicy" so I use 1 whole, small bottle (Usually Amy's Organic)
Mix, chill and serve!
