I am on a quest...
a quest to use up leftovers before I have to throw them away.
I hate throwing food away! It's like throwing away cash!
Now, the first thing you need to understand is that I don't do well without a recipe. I can make just about anything if I have a recipe with real measurements.
A recipe without real measurements is a bit scary!
So, tonight's dinner was huge for me!
These are the ingredients I had on hand
white corn tortillas (left over from another recipe)
half a can of green chiles
left over grilled chicken (frozen, cut into strips)
I thawed out the chicken in the microwave, and then mixed it with the green chiles, some cheddar cheese, and some taco sauce. The chicken had already been marinated in a great marinade before grilling, so I didn't think it would need any more seasoning.
I sprayed a 9x13 pyrex dish and then put a little of the taco sauce on the bottom. I tore the tortillas into strips and placed one layer of tortillas in the pan. Next I spread out the chicken mixture, covered that with a layer of cheese, then a layer of tortilla strips, taco sauce, and topped with cheese and a few leftover chiles. (Sorry I do not have any pictures of the steps! I just wasn't thinking! And who knew how it would turn out anyway.)
I baked it for about 12 minutes at 350 degrees. Just enough to melt the cheese.
And...it actually turned out good!
Daniel even said I should make it again!
Miracles do still happen! :-)
