Recipe Exchange

Here is the lo-down:

Recipe Regatta - Mandy's house - AKA: SERIOUS MEXICAN FIESTA!

Each month women from my community get together and meet at someone's home. Eight people bring a recipe prepared and the ingredients to pass along. The rest of us enjoy gathering new ideas for family dinners and get away from the daily groove for an hour. It turned out great ... Here were a few of the recipes that changed my life:

Chicken Enchilada Casserole - Jessica Banks
(The picture didn't do is justice ... this was AWESOME!)

2 cups cooked chicken diced
1 can cream of chicken soup
1 can milk (use soup can to measure)
1 cup of favorite chunky salsa

grated cheese (cheddar or cheddar jack combo

Spray 13" x 9" casserole dish with Pam. Cut up tortillas into fairly small pieces. Arrange half in bottom of casserole dish. Combine chicken, soup, milk, & salsa. Pour half of mixture over first layer of cut up tortillas. Generously sprinkel with grated cheese. Repeat layers. Bake for 20 minutes at 350 degrees. Top with lettuce & tomatoes if desired.
