Betty's "Simply the Best" Chicken Enchiladas

Betty's Kitchen, YouTube,  Oct 27, 2015

Betty demonstrates how to make Chicken Enchiladas. These enchiladas are made of flour tortillas stuffed with chicken and cheese and topped with a spicy sour cream-jalapeno sauce. 


10 small flour tortillas 

2 cups cooked, shredded chicken 

2 cups shredded Monterey Jack cheese 

3 tablespoons butter 

2 tablespoons cornstarch 

2 cups chicken broth 

1 clove garlic, minced 

½ teaspoon salt 

½ teaspoon black pepper 

1 cup sour cream 

1 teaspoon onion powder 

1 teaspoon garlic powder 

1 teaspoon ground cumin 

1 jalapeno pepper, seeded and finely chopped 

1 teaspoon lime juice


Preheat oven to 350 degrees (F). 

Grease a 9 x 13 pan. 

In a medium-sized bowl, mix chicken, 1 cup of cheese, and garlic. 

Place 1/10 of mixture onto a tortilla and roll. 

Place rolled tortilla in pan, seam side down. 

In a medium-sized saucepan, melt butter. 

Stir in cornstarch and cook for one minute. 

Add chicken broth and whisk until smooth. 

Cook over medium heat until mixture is bubbly and thickened. 

Stir in sour cream, jalapenos, lime, cumin, onion powder, garlic powder, salt, and pepper. 

Heat through, but do not boil. 

Pour mixture over enchiladas and top with the remaining cup of cheese. 

Bake for 20 to 25 minutes, until bubbly and cheese is beginning to brown. 

Serve while hot. 

Enjoy! --Betty :) ♥♥♥♥

Thanksgiving week Open thread

Thanksgiving pumpkins with fruits and falling leaves

Our week is upon us.  Ingredients are being shopped for and the final guest list polished.  You might get a surprise visit by a family relative who you had not seen for a long time.  Someone that does a lot which is the least they could do in their antics.  Some glad to be seen, and some glad when they go, but our hearts go with them and maybe a prayer.

Since we live in the South,  we have the southern version of Thanksgiving. But my family is from the North, so we are used to stuffing not dressing from the turkey and green bean casserole, sweet potato soufflΓ© with marshmallows on top. There is nothing like them.  

Of course we mix with the southern flare here.  Creamed corn, fried okra, or broccoli salad.  Both sides of our families like the jellied canned cranberries, while some like the whole berries sweetened with some sugar.

Add the pies to cookies for desert.  Cheese cake, pumpkin pie, blueberry or cherry pie?  Cookies, bring on the baking for the little ones that like to help out.

A quick easy way to make wreaths to have people complimenting that you bought them, but generates more conversation and awe that you made this, and not hard at all. Just follow the video and make your own variations, string up battery powered mini lights if you want for an ambience whereever you put the wreath.   The supplies for this wreath is $10, but you can make it like it is worth $25 or more.  Most of all, have fun!!

And don't forget our furry children enjoy it hoping
for a bit of morsel yumminess.

        And there's still time to catch up on the current project, whether it's pages to put words on, to a canvas and a loaded palette of colors with a brush. What will it be?  Abstract?  Realistic?  Modern flare?
