Kid Friendly Enchilada Recipes

I had no thought when I became a mother that one of my greatest challenges would be cooking for my children. I have always heard how picky kids are about what they eat but I didn’t realize what “picky” really meant until my son reached 4-years-ancient and simply refused to eat anything that wasn’t chicken fingers or fruit snacks!

I frequently search for recipes and make them my own by changing the ingredients to include what I know my kids will eat.
Both of my kids like Mexican food and therefore I make the following two recipes quite often.

Simple Creamy Chicken Enchiladas

Ingredients:

2 cans cream of chicken soup, undiluted
1 package of sour cream mix
1 can of cubed cooked chicken
4 oz. can of diced green chilies
8 corn tortillas
1 cup of shredded cheddar cheese

Directions:

1. In a medium saucepan, mix all ingredients together and cook over medium heat for 15 minutes. Stir constantly.

2. Spoon some of the mixture into each tortilla and roll the tortillas.

3. In a 13-in.x 9-in.x 2-in. casserole dish, place the tortillas in a row.

4. Pour the remaining mixture over the tortillas.

5. Top with shredded cheese.

6. Bake uncovered at 350F for 20-25 minutes and the cheese on top is melted.

Serves 4.

Enchilada Pie

Ingredients:

1 lb. hamburger
8-10 corn tortillas
10 oz. can enchilada sauce
8 oz. can tomato sauce
4 oz. can chopped green chilies
8 oz. shredded cheddar cheese
¼ cup water

Directions:

1. Cover bottom of 12×12 (or similar size) baking dish with torn tortillas.

2. Brown hamburger and drain.

3. Mix hamburger with enchilada sauce, tomato sauce, chilies, and water.

4. Pour half of the meat mixture in dish on top of the torn tortillas and top with cheese.

5. Repeat layer by adding torn tortillas, meat mixture and top with cheese.

6. Bake uncovered at 350F for 20-30 minutes.

Serves 4.

Both of these enchilada recipes taste fantastic with a green salad and my recipe for crunchies, which my family likes.

To make crunchies you will need:

6-10 corn tortillas
Frank’s Hot Sauce
shredded cheddar cheese

Directions:

1. Tear the tortillas into bite sized pieces or desired size and place on a cookie sheet.

2. Top each piece of tortilla with shredded cheese and drizzle with hot sauce.

3. Broil tortillas at 400F until cheese is melted and the tortillas are crispy.

Please note: Carefully watch the crispies while they are baking because they cook very quick and will burn. Due to the variations in ovens, you may need to adjust the broil temperature on your oven to cook the crispies correctly. I would suggest baking a sample batch to help you learn the best temperature to use and required baking time.
