I was craving Mexican food this week and thought enchiladas would make a yummy Wednesday night dinner for Awana. Of course, traditional enchiladas are not very practical for making and serving in large quantity so I decided to create an enchilada style casserole—something you might also call a Mexican lasagna. The costs were a little higher this week but still well under a dollar a serving, so I’m pretty happy with that. The casserole came out well and once again I served salad and oranges alongside with milk or apple juice to drink.
I also bought some "Fruit Fresh" this trip so I won't be using mine anymore when I have apples or pears to cut up ahead of time (it stops the fruit from turning brown). All together, I spent $80.88 this week.
I precooked the chicken by dumping it all into a pot with the taco seasoning and Neufchatel cheese. I let this cook on low for several hours, stirring occasionally, until I had a lovely creamy mixture of seasoned chicken.
