How to tell when you are getting old? Something like a new garage door really excites you. Seriously. I was so excited to pick out a new door. The one that was on when we moved in was white, rusty, and the lift had finally died earlier this winter so I was stuck parking my car in the driveway and not in the garage. Now I can park back in the garage and not get wet or cold! It is the little things in life that make us happy sometimes. Next year we are planning the year of the door to the back deck. We don’t have one now and one is needed. Little by little….
We cooked the chicken for this dish two days before in the slow cooker. Knowing that we had some busy days ahead we planned on making the enchiladas one of the next few days. I love this dish because you can customize them as you like. Add green chiles, black olives, leave out the corn and beans. Make them as you would like them!
These are a very mild enchilada depending on the sauce and extras you add. My daughter likes NO heat and these were perfect for her. My son on the other hand loves spice so he can add hot sauce, hot chiles, and some cumin if he wants. Mark them with toothpicks to know the difference if you make a couple “special ones.”
I doubled the recipe but forgot to double the sauce. These were good but just not as saucy as usual. You can adjust everything to your liking.
Add a green side salad to complete the meal.
