Chicken Enchiladas


So even before my mission in Arizona, I have been in love with Chicken Enchiladas but I am so picky as to what kind I like.  I had this amazing companion who spoiled me all the time by cooking these amazing chicken enchiladas.  This is my adaptation of her recipe.  Derek and I can't get enough of them.  Seriously though.  Give them a try and let me know what you think.  The great thing is that most of these ingredients will be things you most likely have in the house.


Chicken Enchilada

Ingredients:
  • 1/2 block of Cream Cheese
  • 3-4 cups of Shredded Cheese
  • 1/4 C of Chicken Broth
  • 1 10.5 oz of cream of chicken
  • Salt and Pepper to taste
  • 2-3 Boneless, Skinless Chicken breasts
  • 1 can of Herdez Salsa Verde
  • 8-10 Flour Tortilla
  • 1 4oz. can of green chiles or jalapenos if you like super spicy.
Directions:
  1. Preheat oven to 325 degrees
  2. Defrost your chicken breasts
  3. Cute your chicken into cubed pieces
  4. Cook them in frying pan until golden brown.  You can salt and pepper here if you like or just later in the mixture.
  5. While chicken is cooking/cooling you will make up your filling mixture.
  6. In a medium size mixing bowl place 1/2 block of softened cream cheese and the cream of chicken soup
  7. Mix in 2-3 cups of your favorite kind of cheese.  I love Colby Jack but anything works. The rest of the cheese you will save for the top.
  8. Now add your chicken
  9. After these three ingredients are combined add chicken broth to make a smoother consistency.  Start with a 1/4 C and add more as needed
  10. Add your can of chiles
  11. Continue to mix all your ingredients together
  12. Add salt and pepper to taste and now you have created your filling.
  13. Grease a 9x13 glass baking dish
  14. Take a flour tortilla and add a dollop of the mixture into your tortilla.  Be as generous as you want here.  I just make sure to leave enough for the whole pan.
  15. Roll the flour tortilla and place the flap downside in the 9x13.
  16. Repeat this until the whole pan is full.
  17. Pour your whole jar of Hernandez Salsa Verde on top of the tortillas.
  18. Top with the remaining 1-2 cups of shredded cheese. 
  19. Cover with foil and bake for 20-25 minutes taking the foil off the last couple of minutes to brown the cheese.
Serve with a salad, rice, beans, or corn.

P.S. Sorry is the recipe isn't written like you are used to.  I just made this up off of a combination of other recipes so it's my own take on everything.

So the past couple of days I have really been thinking about how I can reflect the true meaning of Christmas in my home. We live in a small two bedroom apartment and there isn't much room to decorate. This morning I was watching the video Wise Men Still Seek Himand felt inspired to create a printable for my home. It's a good reminder to not only seek Him this time of year but throughou…

Hazel's Birth Story

Warning: This is long and is written in detail as it's meant to be my record of her birth. 
Well it's been a long time since I've blogged. Life gets busy and it's hard to keep up. However, I found myself wanting to record the details of Hazel's birth story. She's already 4.5 months old and I am finding that I am starting to forget small things. I want to write them all down before I forget. So here I am, sharing our story, so that I can remember and share it with her someday.

Hazel Anne Power joined our family on September 3, 2017 at 8:40 pm weighing 7 lbs 5 oz and 19.5 inches long. She is my smallest baby. She's 6 oz less than Brooklyn and 1 inch shorter. She is just darling and we are so glad she's a part of our family. 
So I guess I'll start at the beginning. I found out I was pregnant right after Christmas time and was able to share the news with my family that was in town for the holidays. We return home from our trip and I start back up playin…

Big News!

So this is big news for the Power family. I know many of you know a million other people who are currently pregnant but before you roll your eyes and skip over this post completely (ha), read on and hear a little bit about our story.
I am currently 20 weeks pregnant. We just found out yesterday that we are expecting a baby girl. She is due to enter this world on January 3, 2012. So far she is healthy and growing strong. She is growing about a week ahead of schedule. Maybe she'll come early...like before the end of the year. Derek and I will celebrate our 3rd anniversary on the 16th of January...so not too long after our sweet girl is born.
A little about us:
Derek: One of the things I love most about Derek is how patiently he accepts trials in his life. He always has such a good atitude about what life has handed him. When he was 11 or 12 he was diagnosed with Type 1 diabetes. Then at age 19 he was diagnosed with Lymphoma Cancer.  He has now been in remission for 5 years. We are tr…
