THIS WEEK'S CRAVINGS #27 (Mexican Dishes) and Sour Cream Enchiladas

The Theme is: Mexican Dishes
(Share your favorite dish in celebration of Cinco de Mayo!!!)

Mexican food is not loved by my entire family, but it is one of my favorite foods. If I had to pick my two favoite foods it would be Mexican and Italian. I love them both!

Our favorite is The Perfect Guacmole it would go perfect with the Chicken Enchiladas I am sharing today!

I looked up Cinco de Mayo... just to give you all a little history lesson. "While Cinco de Mayo sees limited significance in Mexico itself, the date is observed nationwide mostly in the United States as a celebration of Mexican heritage and pride."Cinco de Mayo is not a Mexican holiday—it is an American Civil War holiday, created spontaneously by Mexicans and Latinos living in California who supported the fragile cause of defending freedom and democracy during the first years of that bloody war between the states" - quoted from Wikipedia.

Cream of Chicken Enchiladas

1 can of Cream of Chicken Soup
1/2 cup of Sour Cream
1 small can of Green Chilies
1/2 tsp Cumin
3/4 cups of grated cheese
1/4 cup onions, diced
3 cups of diced chicken (we used Tyson frozen chicken breast; pre-cooked)
6 to 8 flour tortillas
1 small can of Enchilada Sauce (we use mild)

Mix the soup, sour cream, green chilies and cumin in a large mix bowl. Pour half of the mixture into a separate bowl and add in the grated cheese, onions and chicken, fold together until combined.

Prepare a square baking dish by covering the bottom of the pan with a thin layer of Enchilada Sauce. Divide the chicken mixture into 6 to 8 equal parts, then take a flour tortilla and place a scoop of the chicken mixture into the center. Tuck in both ends and fold into a square; like a burrito. Lay with seem side down into the prepared baking dish. Top the flour tortillas with the remaining Enchilada Sauce, then spread over the top the balance of the Cream of Chicken sauce along with 1/2 to 3/4 add'l cups of grated cheese.

Bake covered with foil for 25 minutes; uncover and continue baking for add'l 10 minutes. Let sit for 5 minutes, then cut and serve.
