Cheesy Chicken Enchiladas — Choose gluten free enchiladas or low carb enchiladas!

cheesy-chicken-enchiladas-gluten-free-or-low-carb

Welcome to the August 23, 2015 edition of Sunday Scratchups, your weekly recipe from scratch around grocery store matchups, coupons, and sales. In last week’s Homemade Enchilada Sauce recipe I promised to bring you the actual enchiladas recipe this week — and I try to keep my word! 😉 Here I used my homemade sauce and Perdue Short Cuts for an easy pre-cooked chicken shortcut (as it were); they’re gluten free, and were on sale BOGO at Jewel earlier this week.

net-carbs-in-wraps-is-7

Two variations for you

  • To make Gluten Free Cheesy Chicken Enchiladas, use gluten free corn tortillas.
  • To make Low Carb Cheesy Chicken Enchiladas, substitute a low carb wrap such as certain varieties of Flatout (and be sure to print the current coupon to save on yours!). The kind I used had 7 net carbs per wrap.

I made some of each so that low carb MashupDad could eat with the rest of us. Important: We don’t have cross-contamination concerns in this house, so if you do in yours you clearly don’t want to bake both varieties in the same oven and make them in the same area as I show here — pick one or the other as appropriate for your own family’s needs. The low carb wraps are not gluten free, and the gluten free corn tortillas are not low carb.

Cheesy Chicken Enchiladas

cheesy-chicken-enchilada-slice-7

Ingredients

3 cups cooked chicken, shredded or diced. (I used two 9 oz packs of pre-cooked Perdue Short Cuts, which worked out to 3.5 cups.)
8 oz brick cream cheese
1/2 cup sour cream
One batch homemade enchilada sauce (or one 20 oz can; be sure to choose a gluten free brand if necessary!)
4 oz can diced green chiles
8 oz shredded cheese
One pack gluten free corn tortillas or low carb wraps. (Here I used 10 small corn tortillas and 2 large low carb wraps and made two separate dishes.)

Directions

cheesy-enchilada-filling

Cut cream cheese into chunks and stir in sour cream in large pan over medium heat until melted and combined. Stir in diced green chiles and 1/2 cup prepared enchilada sauce. Stir in chicken until nicely coated, then turn off heat.

filling-all-the-tortillas

Spray a 9×13 baking dish with cooking spray. (Note: I used two smaller baking dishes here to cook up both varieties at once: One 11×7 pan and one 9×6.) Spread a little enchilada sauce at the bottom of your pan. Spoon chicken mixture down the center of each tortilla or wrap and top with a little shredded cheese. Roll up and place seam side down in baking dish. (Note: The corn tortillas will be much more pliable and easier to roll if you first warm them in the microwave for about 20 seconds.)

cooked-enchiladas

Line filled tortillas up until you’ve used all the filling and your baking dish is full. Top with the rest of the enchilada sauce and then the rest of the shredded cheese. Bake at 350 degrees for 35 minutes, or until cheese is starting to brown. Serve with sliced avocado or guacamole, and: Enjoy!

How could anything with this much cheese be bad?

low-carb-cheesy-chicken-enchilada-8

Low carb MashupDad quite enjoyed his separate dish of enchilada goodness, since he doesn’t normally get to partake. The homemade sauce and the chiles give the enchiladas a slight kick, but the cream cheese and cheese smooth things out so they’re not overly spicy. This hearty comfort food recipe fed our family of four for two nights, and I’d suggest serving your enchiladas with something light like fruit and salad.

Homemade Enchilada Sauce — From Fresh Tomatoes

Posts on Mashup Mom may contain affiliate links. Please see disclosure and disclaimer here.

homemade-enchilada-sauce-from-fresh-tomatoes

Welcome to the August 16, 2015 edition of Sunday Scratchups — your weekly recipe from scratch around grocery store matchups, coupons, and sales. Or, say, gardening! This week’s mystery recipe ingredient is again: TOMATOES, just in case your garden is also exploding with fresh tomato goodness.

old-el-paso-sauce

A lot of the more authentic red enchilada sauce recipes just use chiles as the base rather than tomatoes, but my goal here was also to use up some of these garden tomatoes — while pleasing child palates. I’ve never been too thrilled with store-bought enchilada sauce, so I looked at the ingredient lists of some canned tomato-based red enchilada sauces (Old El Paso pictured above) and figured I could definitely scratch up something fresher and tastier! Unlike the store bought varieties I looked at, my version is also gluten, corn, and soy free.

enchilada-sauce-in-food-processor

It’s also deee-licious, if I do say so myself! Seriously eat-it-with-a-spoon good, and it made for the best homemade enchiladas I’ve ever cooked. I’m going to make another batch today to freeze for homemade enchilada goodness this winter, too.

Homemade Enchilada Sauce

a-handful-of-oregano

Ingredients

20-25 small to medium Roma tomatoes
1 small jalapeño pepper
1/2 a medium yellow onion
olive oil
Handful fresh oregano
6 roasted garlic cloves — see note if using fresh
juice of 1/2 a small lime
1 tsp cumin
1/2 tsp Kosher salt
2 tsp chili powder

Directions

roast-tomatoes

Wash tomatoes, cut off stem end, and slice in half lengthwise. Place cut side down on rimmed baking sheet. Chop onion into large chunks, add to baking sheet. Cut stem off pepper, cut into chunks, add to baking sheet. Drizzle with olive oil and bake at 400 degrees for 35 minutes, until tomatoes are wrinkled and starting to brown.

* Note: I had roasted garlic left over from another recipe that I used in the second step below. If you don’t, just add fresh garlic cloves to the baking sheet and roast along with your tomatoes.

add-to-food-processor

Add roasted tomatoes, pepper, and onion to food processor. Add all other ingredients and blend until fairly smooth. Adjust seasonings to taste, if desired, then use in your favorite enchiladas recipe.

That’s some gorgeous sauce

Onion Flowers — An Easy + Beautiful Recipe

Posts on Mashup Mom may contain affiliate links. Please see disclosure and disclaimer here.

bloomin-onion-flowers

Welcome to the July 26th edition of Sunday Scratchups, your weekly recipe from scratch around grocery store matchups, coupons, and sales. This week’s mystery sale ingredient is: Onions. Here I used red onions ($.99 for a 2-lb bag at ALDI earlier this week) for a prettier presentation in this bloomin’ onion sans all the breading and junk, but Vidalias would also be lovely (and darn tasty) or you could mix/match for variety.

onion-flowers-4

I originally saw these onion flowers at Once Upon a Cutting Board (easier to follow recipe at The Project Table) and simply had to give them a try! Aren’t they gorgeous? And amazingly easy to make for a side dish with this much of a visual punch. Check it out — you seriously only need five ingredients (including salt & pepper!) and a bit of oven roasting time to recreate these beautiful onion flowers in your own kitchen.

Onion Flowers

ingredients

Ingredients

Two large or four small red or Vidalia onions
3 Tbsp olive oil
2 Tbsp balsamic vinegar
Sea salt, to taste
Fresh ground black pepper, to taste

Directions

score-the-onions

Chop just the stem ends off of your onions so that they stand flat. Peel onions, then cut them in eighths — but not all the way through into slices, just down to about 1/2 inch up from the now-flat bottom so that they remain in one piece.

pour-on-oil

Pour 1 Tbsp of olive oil into the bottom of a glass baking dish. Place onions stem side down in dish, pour the rest of the olive oil + balsamic vinegar over onions, then roll them around gently in the bottom of the dish until nicely coated. Sit onions stem side down in baking dish and season with salt & pepper. Cover dish tightly with foil and bake covered for 30 minutes at 425 degrees.

separating-in-pan-2

Remove foil and bake uncovered for another 10 minutes for small onions, 20 minutes for large, or until onions are softening and beginning to open up on their own.

pull-apart-petals

Use large spatula to gently remove onions to plate, then carefully separate the “petals” until they look like a pretty flower.

side-of-onion-flower

Serve whole and allow people to section off pieces for individual sides. We enjoyed ours here with Bacon-Wrapped Chicken, salad, and garlic bread, but Onion Flowers are a sweet and delicious side for grilled meat and more.

Not just a pretty face

top-down-onion-flower

Onion Flowers are not only lovely on the outside, they are darn tasty on the inside. You’ll likely have leftovers, so use everywhere from hamburger toppings to veggie paninis to side dishes throughout the week.

onion-flower-closeup-2

I hope you enjoy making these as much as I enjoyed taking photos of them! 😉
