Thursday Night Dinner

Dinner tonight was a new recipe I tried out from All for Easy Chicken Enchiladas. Here is the link to the recipe: Easy Chicken Enchiladas

The reason I wanted to use this recipe was because it called for cream cheese, and I still had some leftover from Christmas that I wanted to finish using.

Today, I decided to search online for a recipe using what I had on hand, and this recipe fit the bill. I'm glad I decided to try it, because this was a very easy, simple recipe. 

My daughter and I both enjoyed it, and so this one is a keeper and will be going into our regular dinner menus for any time I can find cream cheese at a reasonable price or on sale.

Here is the recipe:

Easy Chicken Enchiladas


1 (8 ounce) package cream cheese
1 cup salsa
2 cups chopped cooked chicken breast meat
1 (15.5 ounce) can pinto beans, drained
6 (6 inch) flour tortillas
2 cups shredded Colby-Jack cheese


Preheat the oven to 350 degrees.
Lightly grease a 9x13 inch baking dish.
In a small saucepan over medium heat, combine the cream cheese and salsa.
Cook, stirring until melted and well blended.
Stir in chicken and pinto beans.
Fill tortillas with the mixture, roll and place into the prepared baking dish.
Spread cheese over the top.
Cover with aluminum foil.
Bake for 30 minutes, or until heated through.
Garnish with your favorite toppings such as lettuce and tomatoes, or sour cream.


  1. Those look really good. My turkey-black bean enchilladas got pushed last week. I am thinking Sat lunch now. Tomorrow is fish night.

  2. They were really good, Carol. Definitely a keeper. :)

    Speaking of fish night, I've got salmon I want to make some salmon patties with soon.

  3. I didn't realize the link to the recipe was broken, but I've fixed it now. Sorry about that.

  4. Those look delicious! I've gotta give thanks to the internet--anyone can do a search for recipes using only the ingredients they have onhand and get some very creative (and delicious) dishes. I am going to have to try this dish!

  5. I agree Pamela. Love the Internet for doing searches for that reason. :)
