What's For Dinner Wednesday
My plan of attack with any crockpot meal is to get at least two meals out of it. If I'm lucky, I can get three or four. Like tonight's.
Anyone who knows us can tell you we LOVE Tex-Mex. I got so excited to hear that our favorite local chain, Tijuana Flats, is opening in Lakeland soon. Of course, I heard this and started thinking of all the things on their menu that I enjoy-tacos, enchiladas, and flautas.
The meal ideas swirling in my head, I made a batch of Tex Mex shredded Chicken. This is one of my own concoctions that is a base for many different meals in that genre. Tonight, it made Enchiladas:
They were tricky little suckers! As far as I'm concerned, they HAVE to be made with corn tortillas. Problem is, you have to handle them with care-I didn't. We had some that were broken heading into the oven, which you can see above.
However, once you add a lot of sauce and cheese, then bake for a half hour, it really doesn't matter.
Then, it becomes a huge mess on the plate. That's okay, because some of the tastiest meals are the messy ones.
Now I'm wondering if the leftovers are making more enchiladas or a big batch of flautas...
(Oh, and you'll want to head over to MomDot for the recipe tomorrow if you're in the mood for Tex Mex, too!)
