Today I am having a birthday dinner party for a friend. She is inviting her co-workers and I got up this morning to make homemade ice cream for the ice cream sandwiches for our dessert. I also made Mexican enchiladas with the new recipe from the baby shower.
My daughter taught me a neat trick where you make them in a round pan so you can serve them as pieshaped wedges which really worked well at the shower. I layered the tortillas then the chicken Mixture, covered it with cheese and repeated these layers until the dish was full. I ended with a tortilla covered with cheese.
We also also going to have green salad and I have chips and salsa. I think it will work well.
I used canned chicken, diced green chilis and mixed them well for the chicken layer. I had never made this particular type of enchilada until the shower, but it was very tasty. I used corn tortillas and red sauce.
Yesterday one of the aides at school gave me some of her enchiladas and she used flour tortillas. I confess they are not my favorite. I like them OK, but I like corn tortillas much better.
I hope it will be a fun time.
Father, thank you for opportunities to celebrate with friends and to share special occasions with them. Amen.
