~A Yummy recipe!!!~

This recipe make look like a little extra work, but to my family and the visitors that have eaten it...it was well worth the work!! A friend emailed it to me from the Better Homes and Garden's cookbook. I loved the combination of the green chiles and the almonds. YUMMY! =) ENJOY! =)

CHICKEN ENCHILADAS

Prep time: 30 min. Bake: 40 min. Oven: 350* Makes: 6 servings

¼ cup slivered almonds
¼ cup chopped onion
2 Tablespoons butter or margarine
1 4-ounce can diced green chile peppers, drained
1 3-ounce package cream cheese, softened
1 Tablespoon milk
¼ teaspoon ground cumin (I didn't use this)
2 cups chopped cooked chicken
12 7-inch or 6-inch corn or Flour tortillas
1 10 ¾ ounce can cream of chicken or cream of mushroom soup
1 8-ounce carton sour cream
1 cup milk
¾ cup shredded Monterey Jack or Cheddar cheese (3 oz)
2 Tablespoons slivered almonds

1. In a medium skillet cook the ¼ cup almonds and the onion in hot butter over med. heat until onion is tender and nuts are lightly toasted. Remove from heat. Stir in 1 T. of the green chile peppers.

2. Combine cream cheese, the 1 T. milk, and cumin; add nut mixture and chicken. Stir until combined. Spoon about 3 T. of the mixture onto each tortilla near one edge; roll up. Place filled tortillas, seam down, in a greased 3 qt. rectangular baking dish. Set aside.

3. For sauce, combine the rest of the green chiles, soup, sour cream, and the milk. Pour evenly over the tortillas. Cover with foil. Bake at 350* for about 35 min or until heated through. Remove foil. Sprinkle with cheese and 2 T. almonds. Return to oven; bake about 5 min. or until cheese melts.

Hi Heather, my name is Leslie, and I am Martha Castle's cousin. I see your posts on many of the blogs I read. I've enjoyed "checking out" your blog. The life of a missionary fascinates me. Martha's family was missionaries and my other aunt and uncle were missionaries in Tawain. I love to hear stories of their experiences. My aunt has a blond hair, blue eyed girl that the chinese found very interesting. When my cousin was 2-3 years old, someone took her from their backyard to go home and play with her daughter. She wanted her child to see an American. I couldn't imagine! Your family is in my prayers!
I will be trying this recipe. It looks delicious!
