Ingredients

  • 1 tablespoon butter
  • 6 skinless, boneless chicken breast halves
  • 1 cup onion chopped
  • 1 green bell pepper, chopped
  • 1 red bell pepper, chopped
  • 2 cups shredded Cheddar cheese
  • 1 cup green salsa
  • 1 (4 ounce) can diced green chile peppers
  • 1 cup chopped fresh cilantro
  • 4 teaspoons ground cumin
  • 2 chipotle peppers in adobo sauce, chopped
  • salt and ground black pepper to taste
  • 12 (7 inch) flour tortillas
  • 10 ounces shredded Monterey Jack cheese
  • 1 cup whipping cream
  • 1/2 cup chicken broth

Preparation

Take a pot of lightly salted water to a rapid boil over medium-high heat. Add the chicken to the boiling water; cover. Cook for about 15 to 20 minutes. Drain and set aside. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C). Lightly grease a 10×15 baking dish.

Melt the butter in a skillet over medium heat. Cook the onion, green bell pepper, and red bell pepper in the melted butter until just soft, 5 to 8 minutes; transfer to a large bowl. Add the chicken, Cheddar cheese, green chile peppers, salsa, cilantro, cumin, and chipotle peppers to the bowl. Season with salt and pepper; mix.

Place about 1/3 cup of the chicken mixture along the edge of a tortilla; roll tightly into a tube. Place the enchilada, seam-side down, into the prepared baking dish. Repeat until all the chicken mixture is used. Sprinkle Monterrey Jack cheese over the enchiladas. Whisk together the whipping cream and chicken broth in a small bowl; pour over the enchiladas. Cover the dish with aluminum foil.

Bake in preheated oven 30 minutes. Remove foil and continue baking until cheese is completely melted, about 10 minutes.

Lets make some extra delicious ‘crust’ Macaroni and Cheese.

Ingredients

  • 2 cups elbow macaroni
  • 1 small onion, chopped
  • 1/4 cup butter, divided
  • 1 1/2 cups milk
  • 2 tablespoons all-purpose flour
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 1 teaspoon white pepper
  • 1 teaspoon Worcestershire sauce
  • 1/4 teaspoon hot pepper sauce
  • 1 teaspoon prepared yellow mustard
  • 2 cups shredded Cheddar cheese
  • 1/4 cup grated Parmesan cheese
  • 1 cup shredded Cheddar cheese
  • 1/4 cup grated Parmesan cheese
  • 1 cup dry bread crumbs

Preparation

Preheat an oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C). Grease a 9×13 inch glass baking dish. Fill a large pot with lightly salted water and bring to a rolling boil over high heat. Once the water is boiling, stir in the macaroni, and return to a boil. Cook the pasta uncovered, stirring occasionally, until the pasta has cooked through, but is still firm to the bite, about 8 minutes. Drain and mix with half of the butter.

While the macaroni is boiling, melt the remaining butter in a saucepan over medium heat. Stir in the onions, and cook until the onions begin to soften, about 3 minutes. Stir in the flour, and cook 5 minutes longer. Add the milk and bring to a simmer, stirring frequently.

Cook and stir until the milk has thickened, about 10 minutes. Once thick and smooth, stir in the salt, white pepper, Worcestershire sauce, hot pepper sauce, mustard, 2 cups of Cheddar cheese, and 1/4 cup of Parmesan cheese. Stir until the cheeses have melted, then stir in the macaroni until evenly coated. Scrape into the prepared baking dish, and smooth the top.

Toss the remaining 1 cup Cheddar cheese and 1/4 cup Parmesan cheese with the dry bread crumbs in a mixing bowl. Sprinkle evenly over the top of the macaroni. Bake in the preheated oven until the macaroni is hot and the crust is golden brown, about 30 minutes.

Add the mushrooms, and cook and stir until they are tender and have released their liquid, about 10 minutes. Season with salt and black pepper, then stir in the Marsala wine and chicken stock.

Transfer the chicken back to the skillet, and spoon sauce over chicken pieces. Increase heat to medium-high, and bring to a boil. Cover, reduce heat to medium-low, and simmer until the the sauce is thickened, about 5 minutes more. Serve the chicken and sauce over the cooked rice.
