TTC & Mexican Recipes

I don't think I've mentioned it before but I am an elite member of the TTC, best known as the Taco Tuesday Club! What is it you ask? A few proud people who love and are willing to meet once a month for tacos and beer on Tuesdays. last Saturday was our first ever (belated) Secret Santa/ Potluck party and boy was it fun!

Not only did we get to open presents!

We played fun games like "Just Dance" and "Catch Phrase"

And we enjoyed a smorgasbord of savory delights like Kenny's Chili Cream Cheese Queso and Nurse Bestie's Shrimp Dip. I made Mango Salsa and Chicken Enchiladas. Here are the recipes:

Mango Salsa

2 ripe Mangos, pitted, peeled and diced
1/2 medium red onion, finely chopped
1 red bell pepper, finely chopped
1 habanero pepper, finely chopped
Cilantro, use your best judgement, I like a lot
1 lime squeezed

Mix together in a bowl, keep in fridge for 30 minutes and serve with tortilla chips. YUM! 

Tex Mex Chicken Enchiladas

Yield: 8 servings.
2 cups of pre-cooked rotisserie chicken
1 8 ounce package cream cheese, cubed
1/2 cup sour cream
1 tablespoon finely chopped onion
1/2 teaspoon chili powder
1/2 teaspoon cumin
1 1/2 cups shredded cheddar cheese, shredded
1 4 ounce can green chilies
8 to 10 flour tortillas 
1 20 ounce can red enchilada sauce
Preheat oven to 350 degrees. De-bone chicken, and shred chicken into small pieces, if you don’t have a rotisserie chicken you can use 3 to 4 cooked chicken breasts. In a large skillet, combine chicken, cream cheese cubes, sour cream, chilies, chopped onion, seasonings, and 3/4 cup cheddar cheese. Heat until the cheeses are completely melted. Coat baking pan with cooking spray. Scoop a heaping spoonful of chicken mixture onto tortilla, roll and place into pan with seam side down, repeat until all of the filling is used. Pour enchilada sauce over the rolled tortillas. Sprinkle remaining cheese on top of enchiladas and bake at 350 uncovered for 20-25 minutes.
