Modifications: None, actually.
Time to table: 15 minutes prep, 6 hours cook time
Servings: 5 adults
Notes: This was made way easier by the fact that we had shredded chicken in the freezer leftover from a previous meal, so I literally woke up and dumped everything in the crock pot (I chopped the veggies the night before). Crock pot meals are obviously handy on weekdays, and this one worked out great. Annie particularly enjoyed crushing chips into her soup.

Modifications: None, actually. Well, we forgot the cilantro I guess.
Time to table: 60 minutes
Servings: 9 good sized enchiladas
Notes: These were excellent! They didn’t have any sauce on the inside of the enchilada as we’re accustomed to but I put in plenty of cheese. Not having sauce inside saves time on assembling them as well. I loved using salsa verde as the sauce too, instead of red enchilada sauce. Definitely going to be making these again!
My mom was over, and she is not a cilantro fan

Modifications: Used regular milk, an egg (not egg substitute) and a can of regular (not creamed) corn. May have used slightly more than 8oz of corn muffin mix since I eyeballed it. Used chicken thighs instead of breasts. Used cheddar cheese. Forgot to add taco seasoning to the chicken. Did I even make this recipe?? Ha, I still think it was pretty similar at least!
Time to table: About an hour in total, would go faster if you had the chicken ready in advance. 20 minutes is to bake the corn mix.
Servings: Exactly served 4 adults and 1 toddler.
Notes: Probably due to my “modifications”, the corn crust was a little more done than she indicates in the original post, but I liked it that way.
Time to table: 45 minutes
Modifications: I had some diced up bell pepper in the fridge that we added in with the onions, and and I also added a few cloves of garlic.
Servings: 4 adult meals, 1 toddler
Notes: We made this for Annie’s 1st birthday party earlier this year and I’m SO glad that Erin reminded me of it, because it’s awesome. I was a little sad that there weren’t more leftovers, Erin and I both took it for lunch the next day and that was the end of it. Annie has not been eating well lately, so while I say “like”, take that with a grain of salt It really just means she ate something, as opposed to nothing at all. She had a few good bites and picked out a lot of the chicken and beans.
This was probably right before she spilled this all over herself by messing around with the spoon and hitting her milk. Fun!
