Day 2 Dinner – Cheese & Chicken Enchiladas

easy chicken & cheese enchiladas -

I’m a huge fan of re purposing leftovers into a completely different meal.  My kids and husband aren’t huge fans of leftovers, so when I can camouflage them, it’s a good thing.

These chicken enchiladas are cheesy and yummy, and extremely easy to put together. You can use either flour or corn tortillas, but corn seems to have a better taste with the chicken and cheese.  Corn tortillas also seem to hold up better.  They don’t get gummy when they bake in the enchilada sauce.

Easy Rice Pudding Recipe

Easy Rice Pudding recipe

I can remember my mother making rice pudding when I was a little girl. Hers involved a bunch of time and a double boiler, and I’m entirely too impatient for that. I took a few recipes and married them together to make my own twist on rice pudding. This one follows my food rules and tastes amazing.  This is great comfort food, or an amazing dessert for entertaining.  Let me know what you think.

Easy Rice Pudding Recipe


  • 3 C white rice, cooked (I make extra whenever I make rice, just so I can make pudding)
  • 3 C milk (1% works here, so does soy or almond milk - you dont need whole milk for this)
  • 1/2 C granulated sugar
  • 2 Tbsp brown sugar
  • 1 Tbsp butter
  • 1 tsp good vanilla
  • 2 tsp cinnamon, divided


  1. In a medium sized saucepan with a lid, combine cooked rice, milk, white & brown sugar and butter.
  2. Cook at a low simmer for 20-25 minutes until most of the liquid is absorbed.
  3. Remove from heat and stir in the vanilla and 1 tsp of cinnamon mix well, but gently
  4. Pour into a serving dish that can go in the fridge and sprinkle the second teaspoon of cinnamon on top as a garnish.

Spicy Mexican Cabbage Slaw Recipe

This is another fabulous Tish recipe.  I need to get her bio on this site because her stuff is AMAZING!  She has a Zucchini Carpaccio recipe that will bring down the HOUSE!

I store mine in mason jars – THIS IS NOT a canning recipe.

There is a local restaurant that makes something similar to this – but this is way better and you control the spice and the ingredients – can’t ask for anything more!
