WELCOME to CAROLINA PANACHE! I believe our homes should be a haven, a place of beauty and peace that reflect who we are and what's important to us. I'm on a journey to add personality and panache to every corner of my house. For me, good design evolves, grows and changes with the needs of one's lifestyle. I want my home to be creative, to be stylish, to be entertaining, to be real. I hope you will join me on my journey. It's always more fun to travel together.
This blog is all about bringing style and elegance to the home. The art of dressing your home goes beyond hanging a few items on the wall and arranging furniture. Much like a fabulous set of earrings or a new stylish handbag may take your little black dress from fine to fabulous, home accesories and key furnishings can take your rooms from ho-hum to singing the Halleluiah Chorus! Join with me as we discover new ways to add panache to every room of the house.

The Cook's Corner - Mexican Flava

Welcome to The Cook's Corner! Finding something that everyone in my family likes to eat is a pretty hard task especially when my 9-year old seems to prefer Happy Meals over home-cooked meals. Luckily, we do have a few recipes that please the whole crowd. Today I will share another SIMPLE SUPPER idea that you can prepare in less than 45 min. and is sure to be a tasty Tex-Mex dish the whole family will love. I love recipes that have 10 or less ingredients and this one has 7. Let's take a look.
CHEESY CHICKEN ENCHILADAS
1 pound skinless boneless chicken breast
2 tablespoons of butter
1 8-ounce container of salsa or picante sauce
(I prefer Garden Fresh Gourmet - Jack's Special Salsa - Medium)
1 can cream of chicken soup
1/2 cup milk
1 cup cheddar cheese, shredded
1 package of 8 tortillas (I use whole wheat but you can use flour tortillas)
6-ounces sour cream

First, dice chicken then saute' the bite-sized chicken pieces in butter until done.
Add salsa or picante sauce to fully cooked chicken and mix thoroughly, set aside.

Oops! I didn't rotate my picture. Sorry. Just tilt your head a bit. LOL! :-)
Next, In a saucepan over medium heat, combine sour cream, cream of chicken soup and milk.
Whisk as it heats, till creamy. Remove from heat and set aside.

Then take your chicken mixture and spoon 1/8 of the mixture in tortilla, roll and place seam side down in baking dish. Repeat until all 8 tortillas are filled and placed in dish.

Pour sour cream sauce over the filled tortillas and sprinkle with shredded cheddar cheese.
You can also substitute Monterrey Colby Jack cheese for the cheddar.
Bake at 350 degrees for 20 minutes. The last 5-10 minutes broil the top till brown and crispy around the edges.
Serve with Mexican Rice and crispy White Tortilla Chips and salsa. Enjoy!
Tomorrow is Tablescape Thursday. I will be sharing a special "Thank You" luncheon table I've set for a special group of volunteers. Until then,
Happy Cooking!

Looks so tasty! We love mexican food.
I went back a post and saw your "new" chest in the foyer. It turned out great. I love the black on the red wall.
