How Can 1 Chicken Breast Feed An Entire Family? Make Enchiladas!


Feeding three teenagers and a husband on one meager income isn't easy so my creativity in the kitchen helps out immensely! If you have a small crowd to feed and need something filling but you are low on meat/ingredients this week, let me ask; Do you have one chicken breast? Let's make enchiladas!

If you aren't familiar with my other site - my recipe site - then let me tell you what is the most important rule in the kitchen: Have fun! Don't feel like you have to follow the recipe precisely, as a matter of fact I'll like you better if you don't!!! Contrary to what you've heard, cooking is not a science, it's not even an art. Its.... fun! Add more of what you like, less of what you don't and take a chance on new things. In the mean time here is a budget friendly meal that, paired with some spanish rice and beans is a filling meal that is shhhh... incredibly cheap frugal.


Chicken Enchiladas



1 chicken breast - cooked and cooled and diced
1 can cream of chicken soup
1/2 c sour cream
1 t dried minced onion
1 t minced fresh garlic
1/2 c chopped green pepper
1 t chili powder
1 t cumin
3 oz. cream cheese
2 c shredded cheddar cheese
1 package flour tortillas


Mix everything down to the cheese. Only use 1 cup, and reserve the second to sprinkle over top. Fill each tortilla with the filling (I usually get 8 out of this). Sprinkle the reserved cheddar on top. Cover with foil and bake at 350 for 35 minutes until heated through. Can remove foil for 5 minutes to turn the top golden brown.

Serve with sour cream and salsa.
