Slow Cooked Chicken Enchiladas

anything made with a slow cooker is awesome and will normally last 2-3 more meals. i made these with the chicken breasts i had in my freezer, which happened to have bones… a lot of them. i just had to pick them out when i shredded the chicken

this makes a lot of enchiladas (roughly 10), so you can save the mix in a tupperware and store it in the fridge for a day or two

Ingredients

  • Boneless/Skinless Chicken Breast
  • 30 oz (big can) of Enchilada Sauce
  • 4 oz (little can) of Diced Green Chilies
  • 15 oz (regular-sized can) Black Beans
  • 15 oz (regular-sized can) Sweet Corn
  • Shredded Mexican Cheese
  • Cotija Cheese
  • Cilantro
  • Sour Cream

  • Olive oil
  • Salt & Pepper

The Most Hipster Strawberry Shortcake Dessert You’ll Ever Eat

this is super simple to make — it consists of 4 ingredients:

  • angel food cake (pre-made and cubed)
  • cool hwip (spelled correctly)
  • sliced strawberries (mixed with strawberry glaze)

grab a mason jar and layer your ingredients in each one: cake, cool hwip, strawberry/glaze mix, cake, cool hwip, strawberry/glaze mix, etc.

looks can be deceiving — the cake and cool whip are practically air so go ahead and stuff the jars — your guests will be very thankful later
