Chicken Enchiladas: New Gluten Free Recipe

I took this recipe from Pinterest.  Thanks to the Budgetsavvydiva, I found a winning recipe with some minor alterations.

They are called The Best Chicken Enchiladas. I would have to agree with her on that! 🙂

Grocery list:
10 soft corn tortilla shells (warmed up slightly in the microwave so they are pliable to wrap up)
2 cups cooked, shredded chicken
2 cups shredded cheese (I omitted the cheese because I am not a cheese fan and Aaron didn’t want additional cheese without him adding it himself)
3 Tbsp. butter
2 Tbsp. Corn Starch (I used about 3 times this much to get it really thick)
2 cups chicken broth
1 Clove of Minced Garlic
1/2 Teaspoon of Salt and Pepper
1 cup sour cream Fat free plain Chobani greek yogurt (my healthified alteration)
1 teaspoon Garlic Powder
1 Teaspoon of lime juice
1 bag of spinach
 
Get busy:
Preheat oven to 350 degrees.  Grease a 9×13 pan.

In a sauce pan – melt the butter and stir in corn starch and cook for one minute. Add broth and whisk until smooth. Keep over heat until it bubbles and becomes thick. Stir in greek yogurt, garlic powder, lime, salt and pepper. Do not let it boil.
Pour a little bit of sauce on the bottom of the pan to keep the shells from getting hard when cooked.
Fill tortilla shells with shredded chicken (I also added some spinach leaves to each wrap to get some greens in)
I just added some spinach on top of mine since I didn’t know how well Aaron would receive spinach in his Mexican food. Also put the leftover chicken on top of his side, (hence the chunks).
Pour the rest of the mixture over enchiladas.
Top with any cheese you might want
Bake for 25 min or until the insides are warm.
Yes, I might have dipped out a little sample while waiting on Aaron to get home from delivering sheep 😉

Portobello Mushrooms PIZZA: New Gluten Free Recipe

Utilizing some inspiration from Pinterest we made some awesome Portobello mushroom pizzas. We both love the mushrooms in just about anything and have not had pizza in ages. At least this girl has not since the honeymoon. So I was pretty stoked to be able to have something like pizza!!! YAY!!!!!!!!!!!!!! 🙂

Grocery list:

Portobello Mushrooms (we bought a large container of them at Sam’s which had 5-6 in them)

Red Gold Tomato Paste

Italian Seasonings

Ricotta Cheese

Meat toppings (I used cooked hamburger and the hubby used pepporoni)

GET BUSY:

We ended up washing the mushrooms with some water and finger grease (I just rubbed off anything that look questionable, with my finger). Then we placed them on a baking sheet to bake for 15-20 minutes at 375 degrees.  I looked at some different recipes and some just had you put toppings on and warm up and some had you bake beforehand. We were glad we did bake them beforehand also so that when we went to eat the mushrooms they were soft and easy to eat.

After you bake them for 15-20 minutes remove them from the oven and drain off any liquid. Then spread on tomato paste and sprinkle with desired Italian Seasonings. Add some cheese of choice (ricotta was mine) and the meat toppings.

Sorry for the awful picture, I promise to start using my Canon Rebel instead of just snapping them with my iPhone!

Bake for another 10-15 minutes or until everything is nice and melty warm.

ENJOY!

Reader Recipe: Mediterranean Nachos

I received an e-mail with a tested gluten free recipe. The whole family thought it was delicious and the young lady who sent it to me said it was very easy and a welcomed gluten free meal! Thanks for the suggestion, I am excited to try it soon!

Mediterranean Nachos

Grocery list:

Restaurant style corn chips (tortilla chips)

Feta cheese 

Sun dried tomatoes

Roma tomato

Green onion

Black olives

*black beans

*Italian Style Turkey meatballs

*These were not in the recipe, but she added them

 Get Busy:

Dice the sun dried tomatoes, Roma tomatoes, green onions and black olives and mix in a bowl.

Preheat the meatball and beans and add them in the mix in the bowl.

Crumble the cheese on the chips and microwave until the cheese melts and bubbles.

Put mix from the bowl on the chips and enjoy.

Doesn’t this sound delicious? I have yet to try making them… something about being too busy to be home and actually fix a meal in forever 😉 Can you tell this girl is ready for a slow down, but not getting one for the next 6 weeks it looks like. Next time I fix a meal I will probably be an old married woman  married, my wedding is in a month and a day!

 For now I am working away at school while it is getting up to 100 degrees outside EEK!

Hope you all have a happy Wednesday!
