A Little Bubbly

Wanted to share this random meal that I made over the weekend…

Bubble Up Enchiladas!

Apparently these were all over Pinterest at one point or another, but I stumbled upon them on a little blog, but I cannot for the life of me remember where…

If sweet, cinnamonny monkey bread were to have a savory cousin, I think this would be it.

Again, completely random, but they were yummy. I added some sautéed onions, red peppers and garlic to the ground turkey to get some veggies in there.

Just brown a package of ground turkey along with some chopped onion, peppers and garlic {if you wish}. Once the meat is browned, add an 8 ounce can of tomato sauce and a 10 ounce can of enchilada sauce. Cut your biscuits {10 buttermilk ~ I couldn’t find reduced fat ones, but Ralphs brand buttermilk biscuits are like 2 grams of fat for 3 biscuits so I was good with that} into quarters so you have 40 little bits o biscuit and throw it in with the meat/veggie/sauce mixture. At this point I added 3/4 cup of grated low fat Mexican blend cheese and reserved the other 3/4 cup for the top which I added the last 10 minutes of baking. Mix the biscuits and cheese thoroughly with the meat and then pour into a casserole dish sprayed with PAM or the equivalent and back at 350* for 25 minutes ~ remove, add the other 3/4 cup cheese and put back in the oven for 10 minutes. Serve with a small green salad, additional veggie or fruit.

Makes 6 servings. Believe it or not, this is a Weight Watcher recipe. I believe it’s 8 points/serving on the new point system, but don’t quote me on this.

I’m going to try a {Bubble Up Pizza} but substitute the ground turkey with turkey pepperoni, replace the enchilada sauce with pizza sauce, use low fat grated mozzarella and add lots of veggies like mushrooms, onions, peppers.

Should be interesting, but I will report back….

Hope your Monday is {bubbling} with good things!


The Whole Enchilada

Enchiladas are something that I’ve never made much in the past. I am not a huge fan of the traditional red sauce variety. Since I’ve never met a white sauce that I haven’t loved, I’ve tended to lean towards this version and have found a couple recipes that I love…one being here.

Then, I recently came across a recipe that is a nice combination of the red and white sauces ~ like a creamy, spicy red sauce…the best of both worlds!

Cheesy Chicken Enchiladas

For this recipe I used 2 cups of chopped rotisserie chicken and added some chopped cilantro to the mix and topped with sliced jalapeños, too! I also used my new fave peach-pineapple salsa instead of the Pace. I decided to use light sour cream and light cheese and nothing was sacrificed ~ I promise!

Sorry, I don’t have a pic because these things flew out of the pan at our last minute backyard soireé with the neighbors this weekend! But I can tell you that they did look like the photo above!

So, if you’re at a loss of what to make on Wednesday for Cinco De Mayo, may I suggest these.

They’re muy, muy delicioso!

Happy Monday!


Enchiladas And Olympics And Wine…Oh My

Last night we had a nice, relaxing Friday evening with the female half of the Sullivan family ~ our friends who live 2 doors down.

I found these scrumptous looking enchiladas on one of my favorite blogs and decided it was the perfect night to make them. I’m going to rename them “You had me at cilantro” chicken enchiladas, though.

I LOVE me some cilantro. Forget the chicken, cheese, sour cream, tortillas…..I made these for the cilantro! This flavorful herb runs throughout this recipe and I was chompin’ at the bit to try these.

Here is the line up:

Two ingredients are missing from this pic…the ginormous bunch of cilantro is covering up the little sour cream tub and I also used some jarred roasted red peppers which didn’t make the photo shoot.

The meat from one whole rotisserie chicken made eight HUGE enchiladas.

And here is the final product:

They were SUPER DUPER yummy, but I was expecting them to be a little spicier…we added some jalapeño rings and then they were absolute perfection on a plate!

These paired with Gramma K, good friends, a couple bottles of wine and the Olympic Opening Ceremonies was the perfect way to wrap up the week and welcome Valentine’s Day weekend.

So, if you don’t know what to make for your special Valentine, may I suggest these…spicy, creamy, cheesy, cilantro(y)!
