Pinterest - White Chicken Enchiladas

I have not posted in a long time - life has been very busy as I have been working full-time and still taking a few college classes.
Well I took pictures of this when I made it a while back, but now they have disappeared.  So 'll just post the picture from the site I found it on. Joyful Momma's Kitchen - White Chicken Enchiladas

and yes I originally found it on Pinterest.  I really liked this recipe and much less messy than the ones I usually make.  I'm always worried that they will be dry, so I dip the tortillas in the sauce and then insert insides and roll enchiladas up, but I did these exactly as described and loved them.  Be sure and shred your chicken in your KitchenAid, it's the only way to go.

Chicken enchiladas with green chili sour cream sauce
*These are seriously so so good*
10 soft taco shells
2 cups cooked, shredded chicken
2 cups shredded Monterey Jack cheese
3 Tbsp. butter
3 Tbsp. flour
2 cups chicken broth
1 cup sour cream
1 (4 oz) can diced green chillies
1.  Preheat oven to 350 degrees.  Grease a 9x13 pan
2. Mix chicken and 1 cup cheese.  Roll up in tortillas and place in pan.
3. In a sauce pan, melt butter, stir in flour and cook 1 minute.  Add broth and whisk until smooth.  Heat over medium heat until thick and bubbly.  
4. Stir in sour cream and chilies.  Do not bring to boil, you don't want curdled sour cream.
5. Pour over enchiladas and top with remaining cheese.
6. Bake 22 min and then under high broil for 3 min to brown the cheese.

Pinterest: Philly Cheesesteak Sloppy Joes

Well, I will admit that I am not doing as well as posting as I was hoping. We started house hunting the first week of February, and needless to say, it has consumed my life. Everyone says it is a great time to buy, the rates are great. But in Colorado...... well, financially it might be great, but market wise it is not. Inventory is the lowest it has been 25 years (basically, my lifetime!). It has been a roller coaster ride for us for sure!

Anyways, on to the food. I have made this recipe numerous times, but haven't had a chance to take pictures, so hopefully you will accept my "borrowed" pictures. :) I really love this recipe. I have to say, I am a Sloppy Joes kind of girl. I don't know why, but I love them. I also love a good Cheesesteak Sandwich. So when I came across this recipe, I knew I had to make it. And it did not disappoint!

This recipe is from the wonderful ladies over at Six Sisters' Stuff. It is a great recipe from some recipe inspiration. Check out their site. AND make this. I actually want one right now just thinking about it. Yum!

Philly Cheesesteak Sloppy Joes
From: Six Sisters' Stuff
Serves: 6-8
Time: About 30 minutes

1 lb. ground beef/sirloin
1 onion, chopped
1/4 c. steak sauce
1 c. beef stock
1 green pepper, chopped
1 pkg. sliced mushrooms
Provolone cheese, cut into slices or pre-sliced
Salt & Pepper to taste 

Preheat broiler.

In large skillet over medium-high heat brown the ground beef/sirloin, about 5-6 minutes. Add the onion, green pepper and mushrooms and cook another 3-4 minutes, until they start to get tender. Stir in the steak sauce and beef stock, season with salt and pepper, bring up to a bubble and cook about 2 minutes. 

Split open rolls, place one slice of cheese on one side and toast under broiler, keep your eye on them so they don't burn! 

Place a scoopful of the meat on the bottom half of the bun, drizzle with additional steak sauce and place cheesy bun on top! Delish!
