"What's so "yay" about Monday?" you may ask. Well, I have an absolutely yummy, lick your plate clean dinner recipe to share with you. Oh, I forgot to mention, it's easy to make too!
One day I was foraging through my cupboards and fridge to answer the "What are we going to have for dinner?" question. I found a little bit of this and a little bit of that and then a light bulb moment came. I could make a quasi enchilada/Mexican bake. So I put on the counter top everything we had and made some culinary deductions. The results were a keeper!
So here is what we had:
A partially used bag of corn tortillas
Can of diced green chiles
The remains of a triple cheddar cheese mix
Can of chicken cheese enchilada flavor soup (which I bought intentionally one day to use to make enchiladas)
Bird Eye frozen bag of southwest corn mixture
This is how I made it:
Sprayed the bottom of a glass casserole dish
Covered it with the corn tortillas
Sliced the raw chicken into strips (or what resembled strips) and put on top of the corn tortillas.
Sprinkled on top of the chicken garlic powder and cumin. (I'm heavy handed on the garlic so I put about 2-3 T. of garlic powder on my chicken strips. About 1-2 T. of cumin.) You want to lightly dust the chicken, not saturate them.
Then mixed together in a separate bowl the green chiles, soup, and corn mixture.
Poured the mixture over the chicken. Covered and baked for 25 mins. at 375 degrees.
While the chicken was cooking, I cooked the yellow rice according to package directions.
Then sprinkled with the cheese and baked uncovered for about 5-8 more minutes until the cheese melted.
Please make sure your chicken is fully cooked to the recommended internal temperature of 165 degrees.
I also took pictures for you because I thought you guys would appreciate seeing the stages and finished product.
Please note in one of the pictures, there is one product I did not use. It went back in the fridge. Here is your assignment, if you choose to accept it. Which item in the picture did not make it into the recipe? Send your answer to email@example.com.
This is what we called it:
Divine Mexican Concotion
(we may even add it to one of 500+ Angel Recipes our Pinterest page)
Viola, dinner's done! Happy Monday, yay ya'll!!
