    chicken enchiladas! we always eat mexican food on thursday nites (when they dont go visit their dad). we watch ugly betty and eat chalupas, tacos, or enchiladas. today i'm making sour cream enchiladas!

    cook chicken breast in your fave mexican seasonings. then i shred it in a bowl. let cool. then heat tortillas in a microwave to "soften". dont let them get rubbery. then roll each tortilla with monterrey jack cheese, and spicy shredded chicken. place them in a backing dish that has been "greased" with sour cream. then top with the remaining sour cream. bake for 360/ 30 min. before you take out, sprinkle a bit of cheese for last 10 min. it is yummy and healthy. i always use fat free sour cream and corn tortillas are far less fattening than flour!

Dip chicken in egg, then in crumbs and fry in oil until brown on each side (10 – 15 min each side). Pour spaghetti sauce over chicken and sprinkle with cheese, cover so cheese melts and serve.

    Something really good is get some angel hair pasta, a jar of alfredo sauce (I buy mushroom alfredo) and a thing of fresh mushrooms saute the mushrooms in a little olive oil, and garlic butter. (if you have chicken breast or shrimp on hand add that too). When that sauted (done) add the jar of sauce and a small can of evaporated milk, and lots of pepper and some salt. It's really tasty alone or jazz it up with bread and a salad.

    Ok....here's what you'll need! Salmon.....red bell peppers....fresh garlic....butter...parsley....lemon....and of course salt and pepper!

    1. preheat oven to about 375 degrees.

    2. line a baking dish with foil and rub butter on the foil...

    3. cut your lemon into thin circular slices....(depending on how many pieces of salmon you use....that's how many circles you want!) place the lemon on the foil and place the salmon directly ontop of the lemon. Squeeze a little lemon juice on top of the fish as well!

    4. mince the garlic, and dice the red bell pepper....and pour them ontop of the salmon.

    5. place small sprigs of parsley between the pieces of salmon....and finally add the salt and pepper!

    6. Wrap the salmon and place it in the oven for about 40-45 minutes....but check on it continuosly....

    THEN ENJOY!!!!!

    by the way, a good side dish for this is some white rice and a good salad!!! Let me know it you like it or if you have questions! this is a very healthy dish!!!
