Monday evening is Bytes turn to cook.  He’s developed his own repertoire of recipes that are quick, easy and tasty.   He offered to share some of them with you because — goodness knows — we all can use a quick and easy dinner that is super yummy. Nothing fancy – just a meal that is quick to prepare and clean up and move on to the evening’s activity.  Without further ado,  here is the first in a (sort of random) series titled “Bytes Bites”

Psssst — It’s our little secret – but this tastes way better than the meatloaf I used to make!

Creamy Chicken Enchiladas

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.

BLT Ranch Burger

 BLT Ranch Burger A Pinch of Joy

First time I made ranch burgers, I used ranch dressing out of the bottle.  Oh, don’t do that!  They were moist – just like I thought they would be.  That was a good thing.  But they were so moist they came apart and slid down into the barbecue flames.  Not a good thing.  And they were so soft that it was impossible to slide a spatula under them to lift them off the grill.  Really not a good thing!  This recipe gives the taste and tenderness without the falling apart mess.  Save the bottled ranch dressing to replace or supplement you ketchup allotment.  Works much better! 

Adding the BLT takes a good sandwich up a notch.  Or maybe it’s the other way around – adding a burger to your BLT takes a good sandwich up a notch!  Either way marrying two good sandwiches will be a tasty thing.
