One Of My Favorites

Hello There! D-Licious here to report on our last cook n critique. So, did you guess what we would be making with "mayo" in it? I told you that you'd never's "Cinco de Mayo" or as we called it Festive de Mayo since we didn't actually get together on May 5th.

This month's theme was mexican food. I was super excited because I love it so much. I was looking forward to what each dish would be since I'm used to the usual enchiladas, salsas and the like. We had a variety of foods and I enjoyed each one.

Now on to my dish. I got to use my all time favorite cookbook: The All New Ultimate Southern Living Cookbook. If I haven't told you, I LOVE this cookbook. There are so many neat things in it besides recipes. If you don't have a copy, I highly recommend getting one.

So, I made Smothered Enchiladas. I must admit I have made these many times before but the other ladies were kind enough to let me make it again for them to try. These enchiladas are so tasty and so easy! They're perfect for a quick weeknight meal or even to serve for dinner guests as I have done many times.

Here is the recipe:

2 pounds ground beef

1 (1 1/4 oz) pkg mild taco seasoning
1 (4.5 oz) can chopped green chiles, divided

2 (10 1/4 oz) cans cream of chicken soup
1 (16 oz) container sour cream
8 (8 inch) tortillas
2 cups (8 oz) shredded cheddar cheese
Garnishes: salsa, sour cream, green onion curls, chopped fresh cilantro

Cook ground beef in a large skillet, stirring until it crumbles and is no longer pink; drain. Stir in taco seasoning mix and half of chopped green chiles; set aside. (I usually skip the chiles since my husband doesn't like them. It doesn't affect the flavor at all) Stir together remaining green chiles, soup, and sour cream. Pour half of sour cream mixture into a lightly greased 13-x 9-in baking dish.

Spoon beef mixture evenly down center of each tortilla; roll up.

Place tortillas, seam sides down, over sour cream mixture in baking dish; top with remaining sour cream mixture and cheese.

 Bake, uncovered, at 350 degrees for 25 minutes or until thoroughly heated. Garnish, if desired. Yield: 8 servings.
And there you have it. Now what are you waiting for...go try it! I promise you will not be disappointed! Oh, and on a side note, if you love salsa you have to try the salsa recipe on page 45 of this book. It's fantastic! But, you'll have to buy the cookbook!

I would love to hear from you if you try this recipe out and what you think of it. Just post a comment!

Until next time....happy cooking!
