So, the truth is that I have been slacking on my organized method of menu planning. However, I have decided that every Monday I will post a new recipe. Every Monday...just like Mickey Mouse Club (except they didn't have "What's cooking" Day). So, recipe #1. This is what's cooking at our house today. It will also be page 1 of my scrappy cookbook (that I haven't started yet, but maybe I will get to that today).
3-4 boneless chicken breasts, cooked or grilled and cut into small pieces
1 large onion, chopped
¼ C butter
3 C hot water
¼ C flour
8 oz sour cream
3 small chicken bouillon cubes
4 oz chopped green chilies
1 package dry taco seasoning
2 C shredded cheddar (or taco) cheese
20 small (or 10 large flour tortillas)
Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
In a sauce pan, melt butter. Add onion, cook until tender. Stir in flour, hot water, and bouillon (I like to use a whisk to get rid of flour lumps). Cook until it boils, stirring often. Let boil one minute. Remove from heat and stir in sour cream. Set aside.
In a large bowl, mix cooked chicken, 1 C cheese, chilies, 2 C of prepared sauce, and taco mix.
Put a scoop of this mixture in each tortilla, roll, and place in a greased 9x13 pan. Place the tortillas close together so they don’t unroll. Top with remaining sauce, then cheese. Bake uncovered for 25 minutes.
So, what is your favorite recipe? Send it to me and I'll try it. Yours could be the recipe that's cooking in my kitchen! Send it to me by Friday, 3/26 at noon cst and I will enter you in a RAK drawing.
