So I gotta ask, isn’t this chicken dish pretty? Swimming in a spicy gravy, garnished with peppers and tomatoes – yum! And just feast your eyes on that gooie melted cheese. Serve this delightful chicken with a side of refried beans, some warm tortillas and maybe Peach Margaritas.
Growing up, Fried Chicken – as in real fried chicken – was a stable in our house, especially on Sundays during the summer. Dad cut up the chicken, dredged it in flour and usually fried it in two big, black cast iron skillets filled with melted shortening. I can see him now in my mind’s eye, a kitchen towel draped over one shoulder.
The first time these Chicken Enchiladas were served up for supper, Kiddo was in charge of making dinner. He knocked it out of the ballpark with just a few simple ingredients. One thing is certain, Kiddo knows how to cook.
Here’s a delicious Mexican supper that utilizes leftover Spanish Rice. If you’ve made my Authentic Spicy Spanish Rice, then you know this recipe will cook up a ton of spicy rice. The leftover rice is great to reheat as a side for so many Mexican dishes or to use in burritos. Or you could try a Rosemarie Original.
I love using my Crock Pot – especially during the summer, when you don’t necessarily want to heat up the house with the oven all day or slave over a hot stove. I especially like crock pot cooking on the weekends in the summer. Beautiful days are spent outdoors. With a crock pot, you can throw things together in the morning, then spend the day doing fun stuff, to return at the end of your adventure to a complete or nearly complete supper. Yeah, that’s always nice!
When Hubby and I first got together, he took me to a dive of a Mexican restaurant – a real hole in the wall joint with linoleum floors that slopped toward the kitchen and rickety tables. Hubby insisted they made his all-time-favorite Mexican dish – Chicken Mole. He was right, it was very good. Because I love Hubby with all my heart, and as a blushing bride, I wanted to make his favorite Mexican dish at home. Have you seen the ingredients in authentic Mole sauce?! Oh me, oh my . . . raisins, nuts, chocolate, chilies and on and on . . . hours of simmering. Oh no!
