Chicken Enchiladas the Quick and Easy Way

Quick Chicken Enchiladas

Super Easy, Super Quick, Super Delicious, and Gourmet too! Chicken Enchiladas in half an hour! This is another in my series of Quick Gourmet recipes for busy people.

As an alternative to the Tomato-Chili version of Enchiladas, this is a different flavor combination: Cheese-White Sauce. It is a staple at our house. We like it spicy hot, so we add Chili Powder to the Sauce.

If you are vegetarian, it is delicious using just Mushroom soup instead of Chicken soup...on Meatless Mondays that is what we do.

Easy, delicious, fast, inexpensive, what more can I say? Enjoy your Quick Chicken Enchiladas!

2 cans of Cream of Chicken Soup
or 2 cans of Cream of Mushroom
or 1 can of each
2 cups of Shredded Monterey Jack Cheese
8 oz. Sour Cream
Half cup finely chopped Onion
Chopped Chicken, optional
1 can chopped Green Chilies
Salt, Pepper, Cumin
10-12 Tortillas

Directions for Quick Chicken Enchiladas

Mix all ingredients except Tortillas in a bowl. Add Salt, Pepper and a little Cumin to taste.

Spread 2-3 Tablespoons of this filling in each Tortilla. 

Roll up and place in a flat casserole dish. 

Reserve a little of the filling to drizzle over the top, and sprinkle with  some shredded Cheese also.

Bake at 350 degrees for 20 minutes or until hot and bubbly.


Optional: Turn it into a Casserole.

Instead of Tortillas, prepare 6 oz. Noodles, drain and mix with Sauce. Bake. Wonderful!

Also, extra Chicken is not necessary!

What Goes With Chicken Enchiladas?
(Besides Margaritas)

Serve with Rice and Beans, and a fresh Salad, or instead, add some Guacamole and Chips. Or any combination of those.

For Dessert, serve something cold, as a contrast...like Ice Cream or Sherbet... drizzled with Fruit Sauce or even a few fresh Strawberries or Kiwi slices...and while you're thinking of something refreshing to counterbalance the hotness of the Enchiladas, how about a Margarita? Even the non-alcoholic ones taste great, or so I am told!

Information About Dolphins

Wikipedia Has a Few Things to Say About Dolphins:

Dolphins are marine mammals that are closely related to Whales and Porpoises. There are almost forty species of Dolphin in 17 genera. 

They vary in size from 1.2 m (4 ft) and 40 kg (90 lb) (Maui’s Dolphin), up to 9.5 m (30 ft) and 10 tonnes (9.8 long tons; 11 short tons) (the Orca or Killer Whale). 

They are found worldwide, mostly in the shallower seas of the continental shelves, and are carnivores, mostly eating fish and squid.

The family Delphinidae is the largest in the Cetacean order, and evolved relatively recently, about ten million years ago, during the Miocene. 

Dolphins are among the most intelligent animals, and their often friendly appearance and seemingly playful attitude have made them popular in human culture.

Dolphins are often regarded as one of Earth’s most intelligent animals, though it is hard to say just how intelligent. Comparing species’ relative intelligence is complicated by differences in sensory apparatus, response modes, and nature of cognition. 

Furthermore, the difficulty and expense of experimental work with large aquatic animals has so far prevented some tests and limited sample size and rigor in others. Compared to many other species, however, Dolphin behavior has been studied extensively, both in captivity and in the wild.

Dolphins are social, living in pods of up to a dozen individuals. In places with a high abundance of food, pods can merge temporarily, forming a superpod; such groupings may exceed 1,000 Dolphins. 

Individuals communicate using a variety of clicks, whistles and other vocalizations. They make ultrasonic sounds for echolocation. Membership in pods is not rigid; interchange is common. 

However, Dolphins can establish strong social bonds; they will stay with injured or ill individuals, even helping them to breathe by bringing them to the surface if needed.

This altruism does not appear to be limited to their own species however. The Dolphin Moko in New Zealand has been observed guiding a female Pygmy Sperm Whale together with her calf out of shallow water where they had stranded several times. 

They have also been seen protecting swimmers from sharks by swimming circles around the swimmers or charging the sharks to make them go away.

Dolphins also display culture, something long believed to be unique to humans (and possibly other primate species). In May 2005, a discovery in Australia found Indo-Pacific bottlenose Dolphins (Tursiops aduncus) teaching their young to use tools. They cover their snouts with sponges to protect them while foraging. 

This knowledge is mostly transferred by mothers to daughters, unlike simian primates, where knowledge is generally passed on to both sexes. Using sponges as mouth protection is a learned behavior. 

Another learned behavior was discovered among River Dolphins in Brazil, where some male Dolphins use weeds and sticks as part of a sexual display.

Dolphins engage in acts of aggression towards each other. The older a male Dolphin is, the more likely his body is to be covered with bite scars. 

Male Dolphins engage in such acts of aggression apparently for the same reasons as humans: disputes between companions and competition for females. 

Acts of aggression can become so intense that targeted Dolphins sometimes go into exile as a result of losing a fight.
