Freakin Awesome Enchiladas

So, last night, Camaron had a late class (til 10pm. grosssss) and I was missing him, so I decided I would make us dinner for when he arrived home. This isn't anything new, I usually cook dinner or have something for him when he gets home late like this, but this time...

I wanted to make it freakin awesome.

So I texted my soon-to-be-a-new-mommy-former-roommate-friend, Katie, for her amazzzazzing enchilada recipe. My mouth just watered. She would make these when we were up at school together. Let's just say, she used to work at Cafe Rumba, and she obviously took notes. They're different than most enchiladas you've had (in a good way).

And because you (yes, you) are just so great, I decided to share this recipe with you today

Katie's Enchiladas (so so good)
If I had taken a photo, it would have looked as good as this. via

Ingredients 
1 lb cooked and shredded chicken
1 1/2 - 2 cups shredded mozzarella cheese
1 big can of green enchilada sauce
1 lime
1/4 cup cut-up cilantro
2 garlic cloves
6 medium flour tortillas

Directions
First, combine the chicken, half the can of sauce, and half of the cheese in a bowl. Then add cilantro, minced-up garlic, and lime juice to taste. I didn't have garlic, so I used garlic salt. And I squeezed in the whole lime 
Next put this filling in each tortilla, roll, then place in 9x13 baking pan, with the seams of each roll facing down. Now, pour the remaining sauce and sprinkle remaining cheese over the whole pan evenly.
Bake at 350 for 20 minutes
Go to heaven

For extra heavenliness, you can top finished product with sour cream or guac (or guac mixed with pico-de-gallo, as I did. It is most yummy)

  11. Thanks for the comment on my blog the other day! It's fun to meet new blogger friends out there. Your blog is so cute and this post just made my stomach GROWL. No joke! I was also just reading your and your husband's story... did you guys know each other all your lives? Fun that your families live so close. That's how mine and my husband's families were until mine moved to UT a year ago. But now they're close to us and we have on-call babysitters that love our child :)
