Chicken Enchiladas

Chicken EnchiladasMy husband’s birthday was this past week, and to celebrate, I’m sharing one of his favorite dishes- Chicken Enchiladas! Last weekend was a busy one, and between working, church, a bridal shower and grad parties, we couldn’t find time to go out for his birthday. I asked him what he’d like to do for his birthday, thinking we might bail on a grad party to have a nice birthday meal. Luke had two requests: 1. Spend time with his wife and 2. Eat enchiladas. Definitely a request I could accommodate!

Happy Birthday, Luke!
Meet Luke. He loves superheroes, long hikes, taking selfies with turtle statues, and enchiladas. Especially enchiladas.

These enchiladas are one of Luke’s favorites, with melty cheese, flavorful sauce and plenty of chicken and vegetables to make a hearty meal. I usually keep enchilada sauce on hand because Luke requests enchiladas at least once a month! They are easy to prepare, whether you’re making a quiet meal at home or serving a small army, the recipe is simple to double (or triple!) and enchiladas are such a crowd pleaser. Serve with chips and guac, or enjoy them on their own!

Chicken and Spinach Flautas

chicken spinach flautasDelightfully crispy, and packed with flavor, I find flautas impossible to resist. My husband will tell you I order them at restaurants at almost every opportunity I get. As much as I love flautas, the nutritional information is hard to stomach. Deep fried and greasy, these tasty and crispy tacos contain an inordinate amount of fat. I was so excited to find this healthy alternative. These chicken and spinach flautas are still perfectly crispy, but they are baked instead of fried. We were skeptical about the spinach filling, but it is delicious.

These flautas are great for dinner, but can also be served as an appetizer or snack. Enjoy these flavorful flautas without the grease of deep fried versions. Trust me, you’ll fall in love.
