  1. Loks really yummy! Thanks for sharing πŸ™‚

  2. That sounds delish!!! I can't wait to try it!

  3. I make something very similar (we add lots of cilatro because we're cilantro-aholics LOL) and it is so yummy. I just love the creamy sauce.

  4. I love it that you keep putting recipes on your blog! I made your Easy Beef Burritos and Spanish Rice for dinner last night and it was so yummy! I can't wait to try this one out.

  5. YUM! This looks good !

  6. We make chicken enchiladas, but I love the rice inside in yours. Yum.

  7. These look great! THey are on the menu for next week. Thanks for sharing! One small thing: green enchilada sauce is not listed in the ingredients, but it is in the instructions. It's no biggie if you read the directions before you shop, but if you don't, it could be a problem. Not trying to criticize…promise! I appreciate all you share so willingly!!Thanks!

  8. Jeanniemb1: Thanks for letting me know! I updated the ingredients list :o)

  9. Mmm – just found your site and don't have time to browse right now, but I'm gonna 'Follow' even if it's just for this recipe!I'm sure there 'll be loads more on the site too – me too being a homeschooling mum…..from Scotland, so I'll have to 'tweak' the ingredients etc.Nice to 'meet' youLove, Anne x

  10. Yumm-O! I loved the whole wheat pancakes you posted the awhile son ate them just as quickly as the ones I used to make, and these were so much healthier! Can't wait to try this recipe!

  11. We had these for dinner two nights ago, and just finished fighting over the leftovers today. πŸ™‚ Great recipe! Thanks for sharing!On a side note: I made the felt picnic Set for my youngest daughter's 3rd birthday last week and she LOVED it!! It's really a challenge to find something the youngest of four girls will like that she doesn't already have access to in the house. This was perfect!! A bonus: I am VERY good at the blanket stitch now. πŸ™‚ Again, thank you for sharing all of your creativity with us!

  12. These sound great! I love quick recipes. Do you have a place to submit recipe ideas for your monthly meal plan?

    This is the exact same picture as your Easy Beef Burritos. One of them must be wrong! πŸ™‚ Only noticed as I am looking for some new Mexican recipes and had these both open (in different tabs) at the same time.

  14. Nah, they look exactly the same, I probably did use the picture for both though.
