Chicken Enchiladas and Unemployment

You wouldn't think these two things had anything to do with each other, would ya?

They do if your strategy is to feed Surfer Dude so that he'll just rescue you from the madness and you'll never have to work again.

But I don't want to marry Surfer Dude. And those days, the days of our mothers, are long gone. Plus, I'd go crazy. Or...get crazier.

He came over yesterday after his interview with Allergan. Yep, we're both a couple of out of work losers. I made simple Green Chicken Enchiladas for lunch. They have tons of oozy sharp chedder melted over the top, with little crisp bits of cheese. No wonder I have high cholesterol.

4 chicken breasts (throw in crock pot w/ water for 4 hrs on high, or 8 on low, or just boil and drain and shred)
1 1/2 c green salsa - hot
1 small container sour cream
chopped green onions, a few. Optional: some cilantro if you're in the mood, green chilis or a chopped up jalapeno if you feel spicy. I always feel spicy...well lately.
2 cups of sharp cheddar

Mix all of that together in a bowl.

Heat corn tortillas in some oil in a frying pan to soften and fill/roll tortillas with above mixture and line them up in a lasagna pan. Pack em in.

Pour 28 oz of green enchilada sauce over the enchiladas. I like "Las Palmas" and cover with MORE grated sharp cheddar. Lots. At least another two cups. Maybe put a row of sliced olives or sliced jalapenos across the top. Bake at 350 for 30-40 minutes. Thats it. It's comfort food.

Surfer Dude asked me to live with him after lunch. These enchiladas, are that good.

So stay tuned.

My cooking makes my husband crazy, too. He wants me to move out!

You always feel spicy these days? So the hanky panky is doing you some good?

If you move in with him, can I have your apartment? Seriously.
