What's Cooking Thursdays? Chicken Enchilada Pasta

Welcome to What's Cooking Thursday! A place for you to link up whatever it is you've been cooking at your house! Not a blogger? Leave your recipe in the comment section. Look for a featured recipe next week. Feel free to link up as many recipes as you'd like, all I ask is that you link back to What's Cooking Thursday!



I love chicken and pasta and enchiladas. So when I saw this recipe on the Santa Fe Cooking Creme, I knew I had to try it. It was a hit! Everyone loved it. Hubby ate it with tortilla chips which was as good as eating it "plain".

You'll need :
1 lb chicken
1 bag frozen corn
1 can diced tomatoes
1 container Kraft Santa Fe Cooking Creme
1/2 box pasta - bowties, penne, whatever :)
8 oz shredded cheese

Cook chicken in skillet. Meanwhile, boil pasta. When done, set aside. When chicken is thoroughly cooked, add tomatoes, corn and cooking creme; simmer for 3 min. Add pasta and 1/2 cup shredded cheese, stir to coat.  Top with remaining shredded cheese. Remove from heat. Cover & let stand until cheese is melted. Serve.

I really need to set a timer or something so I know that it's Wednesday night and I need to get this posted. :(

I've been working on recipes that will get the most out of my ingredients. And I want to use up what I have. The other night, I had some leftover veggies and some leftover turkey. Plus I have a gazillion cream of soups. I added in some stuffing and had a wonderful filling meal for dinner.
1 cup leftover turkey or chicken
2 cups leftover veggies (chopped)
2 cans cream of chicken soup
1 box of stuffing mix

Prepare stuffing as directed on package. Meanwhile, combine other ingredients in a casserole dish. Spread prepared stuffing overtop. Bake at 400 degrees for 30 minutes. Serve!

Meal Plan 11/13

As it nears closer to Thanksgiving, the family and I are craving Thanksgiving foods. Pumpkin pie, stuffing, and gravy have all been requested lately. I'm not wanting to do an all out turkey dinner yet so I'm thinking I might make some sort of casserole. Kind of an after Thanksgiving meal before Thanksgiving. :) We're also wanting soups and rolls. Something to keep us warm and full after a day of working hard.

On the menu this week is :

Porkchops
Subs
Grilled Cheeseburgers
Chicken & Rice
Leftovers
Ham & Potatoes
Chicken & Stuffing Bake

Meal Plan 11/6

I finally created a monthly meal plan, and I don't stick to it! Last week, we had steamers and pizza and a bunch of other stuff that wasn't on the menu. That's the beauty of being flexible with my menu though. I don't mind if we go off course and have a completely different week than what I have planned. At least we're eating!
This week we're supposed to eat:

Tacos
Pork Roast
Cheeseburger Soup
Leftovers
Ham
Cheeseburger Flatmelts *new*
Turkey Pot Pie

I lost track of the days again... I honestly thought today was Wednesday until we showed up for storytime and the librarian polietly told me that it was held yesterday...

Today's recipe is Drunken Porkchops and I thought it was really good. It was really easy to prepare and the kids enjoyed it!


4 or 5 pork chops
1/2 onion, chopped
1/2 bottle of beer
1/2 cup brown sugar
1/3 cup ketchup
1 T flour
1/4 water

Place porkchop and onion in slowcooker. Combine beer, brown sugar and ketchup. Pour over porkchops and onion. Cook on low 6-8 hours or until porkchops are done. Drain sauce into a saucepan. Add flour and water and stir to thicken. Serve over rice, potatoes or noodles.
