Annettes Enchiladas

It’s finally here!!!  

Nikki’s Sweet Southern Boy Virtual Baby Shower.  

Oh how I love this girl!  Her blog Seeded at the Table is full of love and great recipes.

It was super hard for me to decide what I would make…you see Nikki and I have many of the same tastes in food.  It’s like trying to buy my sister a birthday present there are so many things I want to get her it’s hard to choose!  Same here.  I had all sorts of recipes running around in my head…what to bring, what to bring, so hard to decide!  The theme is Sweet Southern Boy….well ya can’t get too much more southern than enchiladas can you?! ;D

At the time I received the invitation to help contribute to Nikki’s shower I was also reading the book Bread &Wine.  A book I know Nikki would love.  Bread & Wine is a collection of essays by Shauna Niequist about family relationships, friendships, and the meals that bring us together.  Shauna also shares many wonderful and comforting recipes that she makes for her family and friends, including the recipe for Annette’s Enchiladas.  After the birth of her first child Shauna’s friend Annette brought her a pan full of enchiladas and now it’s a recipe she always shares with friends after they’ve had a baby.   This recipe is some serious comfort food!

 

“It’s eat it with a fork straight out of the pan in the middle of the night comfort food.” (a quote from Bread & Wine)

 

Because I know that Nikki, like myself, has a serious penchant for Mexican food I knew Annette’s Enchiladas was the recipe I had to bring to the shower!!  This is one of the easiest dinners I have ever made, doubled with the fact that my family loves it, also freezes well making it a fabulous Meal 4 Sharing!

Heres how to throw it together:

In a bowl mix together a 28 ounce can of green enchilada sauce (Las Palmas is the best), 1 cup sour cream, and two 4 ounce cans of diced green chilies.  Set aside.

 

I’ve already started the process here but I wanted you to see how I’ve created a little assembly line with my shredded chicken (roasting chicken from grocery store), cheese, tortillas, and  sauce.  These enchiladas come together super quick.

 

Assembly: Sauce, dip tortillas in warm broth layer over sauce, then chicken, more sauce, cheese, tortillas, chicken, beans (optional), sauce, cheese, tortillas, sauce, and cheese!!!  Got that?  ;)

 

I love recipes that can be made ahead of time.  What better for a shower than a “make ahead” recipe…more time for other preparations!   Make ahead recipes are great for giving too.  After I had my babies it was alway nice to have a meal in the refrigerator that I could just pop in the oven.

 

 

 

Annette’s Enchiladas could be served with Spanish Rice, pica de gallo, guacamole, and Nikii’s famous Queso Blanco Dip with chips , and for dessert her Mexican Brownie Bottom Cheesecake!

I’d like to thank Jessica of Sunny Side Up and Kelsey from Apple a Day for hosting!  Don’t forget to stop by  their blogs to see what everyone else brought to the
Sweet Southern Boy Baby Shower!

 

Have a great weekend!  Luvya, Sheila

    Shelia- these enchiladas look amazing! Suddenly I feel like I need that hot and gooey cheese. Haha. But seriously, very smart thinking to do a freeze-ahead meal for our sweet Mommy. :) So glad to ‘meet’ you and make a new friend!
