Chicken & Spinach Enchiladas

Every once in a while, I get ambitious and want to try a new recipe. I pulled this Chicken Enchiladas recipe out of a magazine, but the night I tried to make it, I didn’t have all the ingredients! I made a few substitutions (see below the recipe), and it turned out delicious. Yum! If you need your enchiladas to be gluten-free, make sure your corn tortillas and shredded cheese contain no gluten.

Chicken & Spinach Enchiladas
adapted from this recipe

2 boneless, skinless chicken breasts
1 Tbsp olive oil
1 onion, chopped
1 cup fresh spinach, thinly sliced
1 cup frozen corn
1/4 cup lowfat sour cream
1 1/2 tsp coriander
1 cup shredded Mexican cheese
8 6-inch corn tortillas
1 cup salsa verde

Heat over to 450 degrees. The recipe called for cooking the chicken in boiling water, then letting it cool and shredding it. I used leftover shredded chicken from a crockpot meal earlier in the week.

Heat the oil in a large skillet over medium heat. Add the onion and 1/4 tsp each salt and pepper; cook, stirring occasionally, until tender, 5-6 minutes. Add the corn and spinach and continue to saute. Stir in the sour cream, then fold in the shredded chicken, coriander, and 1/2 cup of the cheese.

Spread 1/2 cup of the salsa in an 9 x 13-in. baking dish. Prepare your tortillas (I tried using damp paper towels in the microwave, but it didn’t work!). Roll the chicken mixture in the tortillas (about 1/2 cup per tortilla), and place seam-side down in the dish. Top with the remaining salsa and cheese. Bake until beginning to brown, 8-10 minutes.

The original recipe called for poblano or green peppers, but I didn’t have any. I wanted some extra veggies, though, so I added the spinach, and it went over well with the whole family. I also didn’t have fresh cilantro, so I just used dried coriander. And as for my failure with the rolled tortillas–my Facebook Friends gave me a lot of suggestions to try next time.

This was the first new recipe in a while where all five of us loved it. One of the girls gave me “18 thumbs up,” and although I doubled the recipe so we’d have leftovers, there weren’t any!

Giveaway: Dunkin Donuts Gift Cards

Do you eat breakfast out? It’s one of the things I miss most since I’ve gone gluten-free. Back in February, I was invited to a DC-area blogger event for Dunkin Donuts, and I was pleased to sample some of their new breakfast menu. I was also excited to meet up with my friends, the NoVA Grocery Deals bloggers:

Dunkin Donuts put on a great display of their new coffee and tea flavors (I liked the Peach Iced Tea and the Mocha Latte), and talked about their DDSmart Menu. I loved the Eggwhite Flatbread and Turkey Sausage Breakfast Sandwiches (I skipped the bread and stayed gluten-free, even surrounded by all those donuts!). I was surprised that there was such a healthy option at Dunkin Donuts. Each sandwich is less than 300 calories, and the eggwhite “patty” is filled with chopped vegetables. Yum!

Another cute thing we saw was the Donut Decorating Kit, a set of hats, spreaders, frosting and sprinkles to be used with a dozen glazed donuts. It’s like an instant birthday party in a box! This would make a fun breakfast after a slumber party, don’t you think?

Speaking of fun…I have a giveaway for you!

Meal Plan Monday: Using it Up

One of the grocery-saving strategies I shared with you in my March vlog series was to “use it up.” Often, between sales and stockpiling, you end up with a lot of ingredients in your pantry or freezer. Once in a while, you need to brainstorm your meal plan around those items, and use them up! I took a look at what we had, made my list, and shopped only for the groceries I’d need to fill in the blanks:

    Meatless Monday!  Feta & Spinach Omelets, Rosemary Potatoes, fresh fruit
    Tuesday  Easy Baked Tilapia, quinoa, broccoli
    Wednesday Slow Cooker Asian Braised Pork, brown rice
    Thursday Sausage & Pesto Pita Pizzas, salad
    Friday Garlic Lime Chicken, asparagus, rice
    Saturday  Chicken & Spinach Enchiladas, black beans

    Help Japan with your Swagbucks!

    As I’ve mentioned before, you can help Japan’s earthquake relief by donating your Swagbucks. Many of you have done so, and Swagbucks is reporting that they’ve raised the equivalent of $20,000 so far! Take a moment and donate some Swagbucks to the Japan Earthquake and Tsunami Relief Fund. It’s an easy way to donate to help Japan for FREE.

    If you haven’t signed up for Swagbucks yet, now is a great time, because you’ll start off with 80 Swagbucks in your account. Just use my referral link and code HelpJapan for 50 bonus Swagbucks plus the regular 30 you get for signing up (this code is valid for new members only and expires May 2nd).

    Search & WinI talk about Swagbucks often because it’s one of the easiest ways to earn FREE stuff like Amazon gift cards and Paypal cash just by using the Swagbucks search engine to search the internet.

    There are SO many ways to earn Swagbucks:

    • Install the Swagbucks toolbar to your internet browser; you get Swagbucks daily for using it and get bonus Swagbucks when you search. I earn the most this way.
    • Take the Swagbucks daily poll. You get 1 Swagbuck each day for that simple click.
    • Refer others to sign up with your Swagbucks referral. You can invite friends and family directly or add your link to the signature you use on forums and email. Everyone likes to earn FREE money.
    • Every Friday is Mega Swagbucks Day, where the Swagbucks awarded for regular internet searching are much higher than usual. I save my research tasks (for blog posts) for that day.
    • Subscribe to the Swagbucks Blog, where they offer extra codes.
    • Join Swagbucks on Facebook and on Twitter, where they have contests for Swagbucks and offer bonus codes a few times a week.
    • Use their portal for online shopping and earn Swagbucks for your online purchases. You can even earn bonus Swagbucks for purchases on Groupon and other daily deal sites.

    I prefer to redeem my Swagbucks for FREE Amazon gift cards. It only takes 450 Swagbucks to get a $5 credit at Amazon, and it’s the best ratio of Swagbucks-to-money that I’ve found. You can use your Amazon GCs to buy everything from holiday gifts to specialty groceries to carseats!

     What have you earned with your Swagbucks?
