What do you get when you mix the renewed energy of your second trimester and a life of still being on quarantine because of Pandemic 2020?
A lot of time in the kitchen.
While we are missing our friends and our outing spots something fierce, it's been fun experimenting with recipes I've had in the back of my mind for a long time now.
We needed something hearty and filling for dinner last night after a day spent hiking and playing in the sun, so I whipped up these Green Chile Chicken Enchiladas and they were a hit with the WHOLE family.
Even my preschooler asked for seconds!
With everything having been closed for so long (and with so much still closed), my little guy and I took to a nearby small hike early in the morning before the heat really kicked in and it was exactly what our hearts, souls and bodies needed. We had so much fun and it made him feel so proud to lead the way and make it all the way to the top.
After a morning hike and lunch smoothies, we played in the sprinklers and sunshine until almost dinner time when I started to prep the enchiladas.
These are so simple to make and I believe my total time in the kitchen was around 40 minutes. We came in around 4 and we were seated and eating by 5. So nice.
You can serve these alone (we did, with just a side of sliced avocado) - or to make a bigger meal you can add in some jalapeno cornbread, Mexican corn, taco salad or a nice Spanish rice.
They are also delicious re-heated! We enjoyed them for lunch the next day as well with a nice sparkling water.
