say Whaaaaa… !
Yup, I love enchiladas but lets face it, they are a lot of work to put together and then before you know it they are gone… and eating them second time around just isn’t as good. I’m a big fan of leftovers so making a meal that really only tastes it’s best the first time seems like a waste of my time.
I made these the other night out of desperation in the heat. I hate eating the token salads on a hot night. We have had heat for weeks now so I’ve started getting creative with our meals.
I Pre-cooked a bunch of chicken the other night, when it had cooled down for the evening, and shredded it to be used in dinners for the next few nights.
What you need:
2C Shredded Chicken (Or cooked and cubed or sliced or whatever)
1C Sour Cream
1/2 Package of Taco seasoning (if you have bulk taco seasoning about 2T)
mix sour cream and taco seasoning together, add salsa and mix with chicken. Let set in fridge till dinner! (if you are impatient like me just use right away, but it will taste better the longer it has to soak together)
Scoop on to taco shells and sprinkle cheese and or lettuce and Voila!
I kid you not, these taste A LOT like traditional enchiladas, just cold. And the beauty is the longer the chicken sits in the mixture the stronger the taste is, so it’s even better second day around.
