Wooden Nickels sings “Chicken enchilaaaaadas” (to the tune of nah-nah-nah-nah-boo-boo) whenever it’s on the menu.
Thanks to the Pioneer Woman, I have a chicken enchilada recipe that I adore. That I take time to make, and enjoy slowly over a complete dinner. Rice, guacamole, salad, Corona. The whole, you know, enchilada. It holds a place in my heart.
Due to their monochromatic appearance, you might be tempted to think they bland, but dear readers, they are anything but. The filling for these little guys is packed with veggies, cilantro, and salsa verde.
The recipe comes by way of Meg Duerksen, of Whatever fame. It’s her family’s recipe, and it appears, in it’s well-loved glory, on her recipe page. I’m such a sucker from recipes out of small-town cookbooks. And casseroles. I can’t pass up a good casserole. I’m going to make you click over there for the recipe, because it’s important to see how well-loved it is. All family recipes should look like this.
