Sole Survivor Enchiladas

Posted on

Thursday night and whats for dinner? No need to ask friends and family that question. When the girls started into high school, dating, friends, and work I could only think of one way to get them to stay home one night a week and be a family. Survivor and enchiladas. It was OUR family night.

As the girls got older and had jobs that took them away, Chris and I still kept Thursday’s the same. Survivor is still on and so is the enchilada’s. So here is the infamous Harpole Enchilada Recipe

Sole Survivor Enchiladas

1/2 cup miracle whip or miracle whip light
1 tsp ground cumin
1/4 tsp ground red pepper
2 cups cooked leftover chicken
6 flour tortillas (6 inch)
1 jar 12 ounces salsa (I prefer pace)
1 cup Kraft Monterrey Jack Cheese (4 ounces)
1 tablespoon Chopped cilantro (optional)

*Heat oven 350 degrees
*Mix dressing, cumin and red pepper; stir in chicken
*Spoon 1/3 cup of the chicken mixture onto each tortilla; roll up. Place seam side down in 12 X 8 inch baking dish
*Pour salsa over filled tortillas; sprinkle with cheese.
*Bake 30 minutes; sprinkle with cilantro. Serve over hot cooked rice with chopped red peppers, if desired.

Makes 4 servings

These enchiladas can be low cal if you use light miracle whip or you can replace the dressing with light sour cream.


About heylaydee

An average cook, an enthusiasm for experimenting and trying new things, is the reason for this blog. That and I found myself in the “empty nest” syndrome and needed an outlet. So I picked up the camera that was collecting dust, got out the pile of recipes, contacted friends and family for their favorites and starting cooking again. What could be better than a glass of wine, a hot stove, and creativity? Come along for the ride. I will be blogging about food, family, and anything else that inspires me.

  1. I have tried other enchilada recipes before that were good. But this one is not only easy, it is so delicious. My family raves about them and was a HUGE hit.

    Wow I found your enchilada recipe, so yeah that long ranting comment I left now is meaningless.
