Chicken Enchiladas Supreme are on the menu because it’s fiesta time with the leftover grilled chicken.
We’re making chicken enchiladas, bathed in red sauce and topped off with shredded sharp cheddar.
What do you prepare for dinner when your to-do list is a mile long, you are multi-tasking as if it was the only Saturday of the year and the temperature is rising?
We take the cooking outdoors every chance we get and Saturday was tailor made for grill time. The choice vacillated between hamburgers, hot dogs and steak (not difficult to figure out which meat would win in that menu survey).
Or Mexican spices 🙂
We normally split the flyers in half but keeping them whole makes for longer cooking time. Less grill supervision allowed us to scratch even more items off the to-do list while cooking dinner. How’s that for multi-tasking?
Ever opened the fridge and have all manner of ideas pop up as side dishes? The box of cherry tomatoes (sliced in half lengthwise) were the perfect addition to a simple corn salad.
Use leftover fresh corn on the cob or two cans of drained corn (one yellow and one white for a nice color combination), sprinkled with fresh parsley and seasoned with salt, freshly cracked black pepper and a couple tablespoons of vinaigrette dressing.
Tossed and chilled until serving time, this veggie salad is great as is or sitting on a bed of crisp lettuce.
Don’t know about you but there are never enough leg portions or wings to go around so I am left with all the white meat!
And when I have lots of leftover white meat, it goes without saying that our favorite chicken enchilada supreme is going to make the menu.
For this Memorial Day weekend, we’re going south of the border. I’m preparing a variation on traditional chicken enchiladas. It is going to be fiesta time with the leftover grilled chicken for Sunday dinner and chicken enchiladas red sauce.
Margheritas too of course, along with a huge bowl of salsa and an equally large bowl of whole grain tortillas. Olé!
Quick and easy way to use leftover chicken, pulled pork or even shredded beef.
You will need an oven proof rectangular dish such as a Pyrex® dish or a ceramic baking dish large enough to hold 8 full size flour enchiladas.
We’ve also had great success preparing this same recipe for enchiladas using shaved chicken or pork. We’d love to hear how you prepare Chicken Enchiladas Supreme!
