Recipe Crossover

I stumbled upon this while trying to throw together a meal from leftovers. Just thought I would share!

Meal #1
Pre-cooked rotisserie chicken
Rice
Side Veggie of your choice

Use 1/2 of the chicken for meal #1, then shred the remainder and store. Double your rice and store 1/2 for meal #2.

Meal #2
“Enchiladas” – Cammi Style :)

Mix together 1 can Cream of Chicken soup, 1 can milk, “1/4 cup”
(a couple of scoops) sour cream. Add onion powder, garlic powder, cumin, salt and pepper. (To be honest, I never measure the amounts. I do 1/2-1 palmful each of the onion, garlic and cumin, a few shakes of salt and a few grinds of pepper.) Heat.

Seperately, mix shredded chicken, rice, 1 can of black beans, 3/4 pack of shredded cheese, salt and pepper together. Fill tortillas with mixture and fold into 8×6 pan.

Pour sauce over tortillas and top with the remaining cheese. Cook for 25 minutes at 350 degrees.

Serve over lettuce and top with sour cream!
