Cinco De Mayo

I realize I'm early on this post but I wanted to give you ample time to add this dish to your menu. I purchased Pioneer Woman's new cookbook recently Food From My Frontier and this recipe/photo caught my eye.

Click here to get your  copy of the best enchiladas I have ever tasted. It is kinda lengthy but as PW says its not complicated just takes some time!  " I’m happy to share my method for making creamy, dreamy, delicious, nutritious, yummy, nummy white chicken enchiladas."  Amen, sister! I will tell you it was worth every minute it took to assemble. In the cookbook she uses fresh peppers, grill or broil until skin is black then place in a ziplock to steam while starting next step. On the website she uses canned peppers. I'm glad I didn't see the canned version until after I used fresh peppers, cause I know I would have gone the easier route with canned......don't do it....peppers are so good right now, use them. Topped with pico, sour cream and a side of mexican rice, it was just perfect! I'm looking forward to leftovers!

Have a great day all and Happy Cinco De Mayo!!

They sound wonderful. I will have to do a few adjustments to the recipe so I can eat it on my alkaline diet.. Who knows, I may try the cheese and see if it bothers me. Thanks for posting this.

They look and sound delicious, Nanny! I bet the fresh roasted peppers really made a difference.
