Well y’all. I made it back into the kitchen fiiiiiiiinally…
However. This is not a CookinFanatic recipe.
But instead. A recipe from one of my all time favorite bloggers. And friends. And recipe creators Like ever. She is a culinary genius. But really.
Jess @ HowSweetEats.
Her recipes, which trust me, I’ve tried plenty are seriously just the.best.
Her blog. Hysterical. Most of the time (all of the time?) I just feel like she.gets.me.
So about that visit to RVA missy….?
Such as the case of the BBQ Chicken Enchiladas.
You’d think I’d seen it all when it comes to enchiladas.
Like these Butternut Squash & Chorizo Enchis that I fell in love with last year.
And these Thai Chicken Enchiladas that had me at hello (another Jess recipe!)
But now. Now we’ve got bbq sauce in the mix. And you KNOW I’m a southern girl at heart
So yea. I pretty much love this spin on the classic!
And I guarantee that if you try it. You will too.
Plus it’s not too difficult to prepare. And who can argue with easy n’ delicious?! AmIRight
Enchilada Sauce. AND. Barbeque Sauce!
Plus some unseen hot sauce too
Cooked & shredded chicken breasts. Sauce.
Shredded sharp cheddar and colby jack cheese.
Then into the oven they go.
20 minutes later….
You have some seriously awesome enchiladas on your hands! (plate?)
I followed Jess’s recipe for the most part with just a few exceptions based on what I had & what my tastebuds were feelin’:
- lil’ extra bbq sauce & didn’t use all the sauce that was mixed up (about 3/4 of it was used)
- added hot sauce in lieu of cayanne pepper
- used a whole onion sauted in olive oil
- grated half a block of each of the cheeses – guess that was close to a cup
Other than that. This recipe was just golden!!!!!!!!
So moral of the story?
Make these! They will be a super fun twist on the classic enchi. The perfect amount of spice laced in with the sweet
P.S. If you’re in the Richmond area and lookin’ for something to do Saturday afternoon and have a thing for fashion, head down to Can Can to see Heidi Story’s latest fall collection!! Yours truly will be walkin (on the bar) the runway modeling the trends around 2:30, should be a good time. I mean who doesn’t love cute clothes and afternoon vino, right?
