Chicken Ranch Enchiladas

Julie's Eats & Treats ~ Ranch Chicken Enchiladas ~ Enchiladas with a twist!

Say what? A actually main dish post? I know you thought I’d never ever post a main dish again. But here it is. I know I know I got all caught up in the fact that it was Christmas and posted a little to many goodies. Trust me. My pants know it too. Did anyone else gain weight over the holidays? Like to the tune of 5+ lbs? Ouch. Well I’m back to counting calories and trying to lost that and the rest of the baby weight. Wish me luck. Don’t worry I don’t go all crazy and still treat myself so there really won’t be many changes to the blog. My favorite phrase is , “Everything in moderation” otherwise I’d go freakin’ CRAZY!

I’m a big lover of all things with Ranch and Chicken and Bacon. It’s a true story. For example I’ve made Chicken Bacon Ranch Taquitos,  Grilled Chicken Bacon Ranch Sandwich, Chicken Bacon Crescents etc. See my obvious obsession. So when I saw these I knew I had to give them a whirl because they also combine my love of Mexican food in there.

I was not disappointed. They are such a fun twist on a regular old enchilada like my Creamy Chicken Enchiladas, which are also good but hey I like to live on the edge! If you are looking for a recipe to put a little zest in your boring old menu here it is!

    In the past week, I have made two of your recipes. I made the Cherry Pie Bars (but used strawberry instead) and they were yummy! Last night, I made the Green bean, potato, chicken dish….I only used 1 stick of butter and it was very good. Every last morsel got devoured! Thanks for finding and trying all of these great recipes!

    it looks amazing, but it does not specify if we cover the dish, nor do i see where we add the ranch powder dressing……

    • Julie

    The cleanest and most economical type of affordable renewable energy
    is personal wind power. While checking out with different electricity suppliers, you would find that they would
    have different tariffs and prices. Wave energy
    has great potential as Mother nature provides a large supply of renewable wave energy every day.
