Wow...Had To Share

So, since Don and I have become empty nesters, my cooking has become less than exciting. I would put it in the "what can I find to throw together" category. Don doesn't enjoy food. That man actually just eats to survive. I don't get it! I think that there are days that I survive to eat, but that's a whole post in and of itself.

Anyway, yesterday I was browsing through some of the wonderful blogs that I bookmark and save until I can get back to them, and one really caught my eye. The name of the blog is "Pink Parsley", and it's written by a woman named Josie. I'm not kidding when I say that her recipes and accompanying photos are gorgeous!

The recipe that caught my eye yesterday was for Chicken Enchiladas. I have actually never made them. To be honest with you, I've never had an enchilada. I always order burritos when we go out to eat, but the photo that accompanied the recipe was so mouth watering gorgeous that I had to give it a try. The ingredient list was pretty basic. The only things I didn't have on hand were fresh jalapenos, and the corn tortillas. Fresh jalapenos still scare me a little bit, so I opted to use a small can of chopped green chilies that I found in the "Mexican" food aisle, but other than that, I followed the recipe exactly as
Josie had made them.

The drum roll.....they were great!! I made my husband taste them first, and he actually said they were good. The more he ate, the more he seemed to like them. There were twelve in the pan. I had two, and there were only two left, so that tells you how much he liked them! I served them with a little sour cream, and I bought some little packets of guacamole, since I'm the only one that likes it, and they were yummy.

I'm going to make them again when my kids are home next weekend, and I think that I will try them in flour tortillas to see how they taste. The corn tortillas tend to mush together, which isn't all bad, but I think that this filling and sauce would be just as amazing in a flour tortilla.

So Josie over at Pink Parsley....Thank you!! I had to share this one!

I'm not going to type the recipe here, because I really want you to pop over and see all of the wonderful recipes that Josie has to offer. I have attached a link to each Pink Parsley, and it's also listed below. Let me know if you try this recipe!!!
