Recipes of the week: Chicken Enchiladas & 7-layer dip

Mmmm... one of my favorite dinners! Here's my recipe for Chicken Enchiladas:

Before you begin, decide how you'd like to warm up the corn tortillas. If they are not warm, they will break! I wrap the 12 corn torillas in plastic wrap and warm them in the microwave. If you prefer to warm them slowly, wrap them in foil and place them in a 350 degree oven for about 10 minutes.

For the sauce, cook together:
2 T. margarine or butter
1/2 c. chopped onion (I use my dehydrated onions)
1/2 t. garlic salt
Cook until onion is soft and tender.

Stir 3 T. all-purpose flour into 8 oz. carton sour cream. Add this mixture to the onion/butter mixture.

Next, stir in 2 c. chicken broth and 1 4 oz. can diced green chili peppers all at once. Cook and stir this sauce until it is thick and bubbly. Remove from heat and add 1/2 c. cheese (I prefer Monterey Jack.)

Next, stir 1 c. of this sauce into 3 c. chopped chicken or turkey. Place about 1/4 c. filling inside each tortilla like so:
Place your rolled tortillas into a greased pan:
Top with the remaining sauce.
Bake, covered, at 350 degrees for 35 minutes. **OR place these in the freezer for a quick meal later! I often make double and have one for later. Sprinkle with 1/2 c. cheese during the last 5 minutes. Let stand for about 10 minutes before serving. Top with olives and tomatoes, if desired. I like to serve mine with salad and spanish rice as seen in the top picture.
And... for a special treat- 7 layer bean dip! My husband and I get this all to ourselves when I make it- no one else in the family likes it!
For my seven layers, I use:
Layer 1- Refried Beans + Salsa mixed (The amount depends on how spicy you like it! I usually add 1/2 c. salsa to 1 can of refried beans)
Layer 2- Guacamole or mashed avocados
Layer 3- Sour cream
Layer 4- Shredded cheese
Layer 5- Lettuce (I tear it into teeny-tiny pieces.)
Layer 6- Chopped tomatoes
Layer 7- Chopped olives
I hope you enjoy these yummy recipes!

Don't miss out!

My Story- Part 3

This is the conclusion to my 3 part story! If you missed the other 2 parts, you can read them all here.

Last winter, I liked to watch Brigham Young University's Entrepreneurial Classes on BYUTV. They have special guests who are successful entrepreneurs come and teach the class to the University students. My favorite class was the one taught by Mary Krafts of Culinary Creations. She is a successful caterer and businesswoman here in Utah. If you have ever seen her cooking shows on TV, she acts very different when teaching an entrepreneurial class. Her ideas and message were very inspirational.

One of the things she said that stuck with me, was "Do not live in scarcity. Even when you have nothing, you can live in abundance." She also told stories of being generous to others, even when you feel like you don't have enough.

This is what using coupons and starting this blog has done for me. Like I've said before, I had to look at what I CAN do in this period of unemployment for our family. Another thing I have been able to do during these last 7 months is spend less than $100 for groceries and other supplies! We have drawn on our storage and just bought the essentials. It's been amazing to me how cheaply we have been able to do this and still provide what we need for our family.

We still have such an abundance of things that I am able to go teach coupon classes every week or so and give away 15-20 items completely FREE from my very own storage! Even I can afford to give things away!

Like I said, I'll keep you posted on the status of our family and employment. We're hoping for some really great news any day now! Thanks again for your support of Savvy Sister Shops!
