Making dinner in this house seems to be something I'm not very good at. You can add that to my list! I found this pretty simple dinner that I'd share and tell you what I did to make it better!
The recipe is called Chicken Enchilada Puffs and I found it on a blog called TidyMom.
The recipe calls for 6 ingredients:
1 package jumbo crescent rolls
3 oz cream cheese
1/2 cup Mexican blend shredded cheese
3/4 cup cooked chicken (diced or shredded)
1/3 cup enchilada or taco sauce
2 teaspoons enchilada or taco seasoning mix
1/4 cup Mexican shredded cheese for sprinkling
What I did to make it better (or a tad bit healthier) and CHEAPER
(meaning- STORE BRANDS BABY!) was this:
-Less/reduced fat rolls
-3 oz Neufchatel 1/3 Less Fat Cream Cheese
-2 chicken breast cutlets- so hardly any chicken
-I forgot to add the cheese till the end, so YEAH! No cheese fat in ours and it worked out just fine!
-AND I added an entire package of Kroger (store brand) Mexican Style Frozen Vegetables.
**These frozen veggie mixes are now my favorite thing to cook with. I know that there is nothing like FRESH veggies- but the fact that these are the kind of veggies one would put in a Mexican dish is AWESOME! They also have Italian Style, Asian Style, Stir Fry, and MORE! I'm so excited.
This dinner was awesome and because I added the veggies, it made it so I now have left over mix in my fridge for a taco or something tomorrow. So simple. So yummy. Grant LOVED it and Henry- well- he picked at the bread.
I don't know what to feed him............................
