Deconstructed Chicken Enchiladas

It is here again, a Mexican food craving that is. With my recent trip to El Paso to visit my boyfriend I realized we had zero Mexican food. I was having withdrawals after this realization and I got into this kick for enchiladas. I don't even order enchiladas when I go out but I wanted them! I actually had this recipe bookmarked for Hearty Chicken Enchiladas. This recipe is great because it uses a slow cooker to cook the chicken. The chicken breast was literally falling apart as I kept trying to remove it from the slow cooker. I basically followed the recipe minus making actual enchiladas. I just wanted the meat and sauce. I topped it on a delicious salad and called it a Deconstructed Chicken Enchilada. Instead of having flour tortillas on hand I picked up corn tortillas and made home made chips instead.

Not my favorite enchilada sauce, but I have to try everything at least once.

Kept falling apart as I tried to remove it from the slow cooker to shred.

Spinach, romaine, avocado, salsa, plain Greek yogurt, shredded cheese, and chicken enchilada mixture.

Homemade baked tortilla chips are the best!

Click HERE to get the recipe I followed to cook the meat for Hearty Chicken Enchiladas. This couldn't be easier to follow and it will make a lot. This lasted me for a few days. Of course it only my mother and I eating this. ;) Come back on Monday to see my beef enchiladas! I told you I have a bad craving for Mexican food! Fallon PS: I’m having a difficult time formatting my posts with blogger. I recently downloaded Windows Live Writer and I hope this will make it easier for me. I’m constantly fighting with blogger and it is so stressful lately. I want my blog to look nice, not like I put it together in less than 5 minutes. So please bare with me, while I get over this bump! Thanks.

That salad looks great and I can totally have it this month. ;) YUM

I love Mexican food so much, but it's funny because I never had any until I was in my 20s, LOL.

I have been dying to try enchiladas, which is weird because like you I don't eat them when I go out. I am excited to try yours, thanks!
