Easy Sinless Enchiladas

Happy Sunday everyone! This is another “Comfort Food Sunday” post and I know you’re going to love it. These enchiladas are HEALTHY! I’m also giving you the recipe for my famous salsa. Why is it famous? Because I said so. Ask anyone of my friends who have tried this salsa and they’ll tell you that it deserves a Nobel Peace Prize. If I catch you calling this recipe your own or putting other ingredients in it just to “spice it up a little”, I will tell you that you will regret your decision… and you will!

So here’s the recipe for the Enchiladas. Did I mention they’re sinless? And also vegetarian?

Cheesy No Sin Enchiladas

Ingredients

  • 8-12 low fat flour tortillas
  • 8 oz block low fat cream cheese
  • 2 cups low fat cheddar cheese, shredded
  • 1 cup sliced green onions

What you’ll need: Large mixing bowl, cooking spray, medium Pyrex casserole dish.

Directions

Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Mix cream cheese, cheddar cheese and green onions in a large bowl together. Spoon mixture onto tortilla and wrap tight. You should spoon out enough to fill enchilada. You’ll have too much left over if you don’t. Fill all tortillas and wrap them tight and lay them flat in a medium Pyrex casserole dish.

Now, here’s where the fun comes in, and also why I’m giving you my recipe for salsa…

Mekenzie’s Famous Salsa

Ingredients

  • 1 can whole peeled tomatoes
  • 1 jar sliced jalapenos
  • garlic salt

What you’ll need: Food processor and fork.

Directions

Drain all tomato juice and fill food processor with 5-6 whole peeled tomatoes. Run the food processor to chop up tomatoes. Add two fork-fulls of jalapenos. Trust me on this one. Sprinkle garlic salt over the top, enough to coat the top layer. Again, trust me on this one. Run the food processor until mixture is chunky but smooth.

When you’re done mixing the salsa, pour over the top of enchiladas. Pour enough to coat. Sprinkle remaining cheddar cheese over the top of the salsa and enchiladas. Bake in the oven for 13-15 minutes and enjoy!

WARNING: THESE ARE HIGHLY ADDICTIVE AND CAN CAUSE DELIRIOUS THOUGHTS. But, it’s worth it, because they’re SINLESS!

Enjoy, happy Sunday and HAPPY KITCHENING!

Comfort Food Sunday

Good morning friends

Today starts the first of many “Comfort Food Sundays”. I’m feeling a little under the weather today so I figured that I would post a yummy soup recipe. I mean, honestly, who gets a cold in August? Anywho, enough about me and my sickness. I want all of you to take a seat and clear your minds because this soup is out of this world. Yeah, yeah Panera Bread has potato soup, too, but it’s nothing like this one. Especially since this one isn’t loaded with calories. I call it Light Loaded Potato Soup and it goes a little something like this…

Light Loaded Potato Soup
Yield: 4 servings

  • 4  (6-ounce) red potatoes
  • 2  teaspoons olive oil (lighter flavor)
  • 1/2  cup chopped onion (yellow)
  • 1 1/4  cups lower-sodium chicken broth
  • 3  tablespoons all-purpose flour
  • 2  cups  1% low-fat milk, divided
  • 1/4  cup  reduced-fat sour cream
  • 1/2  teaspoon  salt
  • 1/4  teaspoon  freshly ground black pepper
  • 3  bacon slices, halved (turkey bacon)
  • 1/3  cup  shredded cheddar cheese
  • 4  teaspoons thinly sliced green onions
1. Pierce potatoes with a fork. Microwave on HIGH 13 minutes or until tender. Cut in half; cool slightly.
2. While potatoes cook, heat oil in a large saucepan over medium-high heat. Add onion; sauté 3 minutes. Add broth. Combine flour and 1/2 cup milk in measuring cup; add to pan then add the remaining 1 1/2 cups milk. Bring to a boil; stir often, being careful to not let the milk boil over. Cook 1 minute. Remove from heat; stir in sour cream, salt, and pepper.
3. Arrange bacon on a paper towel on a microwave-safe plate. Cover with a paper towel; microwave on HIGH for 4 minutes. Crumble bacon.
4. Scoop potato into soup and discard potato skins. Coarsely mash potatoes into soup using a potato masher (or a fork).  Ladle soup into four bowls and top with cheese, green onions, and bacon.
AND THIS IS WHAT YOU GET!!!!!!!! Yummmmm…
This recipe is “souper” easy to make. See what I did there? I hope everyone is feeling on top of their game today. And, even if you’re not feeling under the weather like me, this is also good hang-over food. Very base-y. OK, sorry, I didn’t mean to remind you of last night. Enjoy this recipe, let me know what you think of it and HAPPY KITCHENING!
