Chicken and Bacon Lasagna Rollups -- A Pinch of Joy

From my sister, Bee . . . a  creamy, cheesy pasta dish with chicken made over the top delicious with yummy bacon.  Sooo good.  I got to do the filling and rolling for this batch  — since I was hanging around the pan of browned bacon, I think.  She’s generous with bacon, but has this idea that everyone should have an equal chance.  :-)   I learned from her when visiting a couple years ago, that its so much easier to snip bacon into one inch pieces BEFORE browning.  Duh!  Here’s what the pan looked like right out of the oven.  Too bad you can’t scratch and sniff, because the aroma is delightful!!

Creamy Chicken Enchiladas

Creamy Chicken Enchiladas -- A Pinch of Joy
Creamy Chicken Enchiladas -- A Pinch of Joy

Creamy  chicken enchilada — just slightly spicy and comfort food filling.  Easy to make is a bonus!  This dish is always a winner and has become the go-to way for making chicken enchiladas at our house! 

We — no, it’s really me —  prefers only mildly spicy so a little extra cumin to a mild enchilada sauce is just right.  If your family likes more kick, by all means adjust and add spices if you want. Use the hot and spicy enchilada sauce!   The creamy chicken base is still there and will support what you want.  You can use frozen chicken that is already sliced or diced.  Or canned chicken will also work.  Either one will save some preparation time.   Mexican blends of shredded cheese are available, some with added spices.
