Want to go South of the Border?

If anyone of you out there are mexican food lovers like me, you must try this recipe for chicken enchiladas!

These chicken enchiladas was a taste of mexico without going south of the border. The chicken was juicy and cooked perfectly. But I must say my favorite part of this dish was the sauce poured on top of the enchiladas. It was not very spicy or over powering any one flavor. The enchiladas also make great leftovers, so don’t be afraid to make plenty!

This pinterest recipe was suggested to me by a friends. It does require a little more time to prepare than my other post, but worth the effort. For a recipe like this though, I suggest doing it with someone else. I think cooking with your friends, roommates or boyfriends is a great way to have fun in the kitchen. If you have fun making your food you will enjoy eating it even more!

Below is the recipe and directions! Enjoy!

  1. Hi Anne, thanks for your sweet comment on my blog! (I tried writing you an email but it bounced back.)

    I just visited your blog and what a great idea for a new blog. Congrats! I
    thought I would mention a couple of things. I notice you’re reviewing
    others’ recipes from pinterest and it’s good etiquette to link to the
    original source (the blogger) and mention the blog. Also, if you’re going
    to post pictures from their blog, it’s usually nice to not repost the
    entire recipe. If you do post the recipe, it’s better to post your own
    pictures and to rewrite the instructions in your own words.

    Here’s a great article all about that:

    Good luck on your new blog!

    Sincerely,
    ~Julie~
