For weeks, Sarah Kate has been asking me to teach her how to make tacos.
Mom teaching daughter how to cook is one of those iconic moments, but… tacos? I’ve got a binder full of great recipes and none of them are tacos. Don’t get me wrong – I love me a good taco, but that’s the kind of thing I throw together on an emergency basis because I stocked up on a kit the last time they were BOGO at Publix. 🙂
But the good thing about the taco deal? Easy.
So I decided on a compromise – something simple that doesn’t come in a boxed kit and would still have a Mexican(ish) flavor. At first I thought we’d go with one of my fave ol’ standbys – King Ranch Chicken. But food baked in muffin tins is big right now (and c’mon, people – it’s cute, too!) so I went with a similar taste in a muffin tin, Mini Cheesy Chicken Enchiladas.
The recipe is super simple, with ingredients most people probably have on hand all the time – cooked chicken, Campbell’s Cream of Chicken soup, picante sauce, sour cream, chile powder, and cheese. Toss it all in a bowl then form tortillas into a little cup in a muffin tin.
Bake them for a little while and top them with extra cheese, green onions, diced tomatoes, or whatever you like. We did cheese and green onions. The full recipe is at the bottom of the post.
I’ll be honest. I have never wanted to deal with teaching Sarah Kate to cook, because I was sure it would be a big mess, she’d probably be bored, and I’d get frustrated. Optimistic always – that’s me! The reality greatly exceeded my expectations. Just one more way that my little girl is growing up… But moving along (sniff sniff) … they were delicious! Sarah Kate was proud of her “creation” but she also loved the taste and has already asked about making them again.
