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.
