Cookin' With Leo

By Andrea Heisler

Well, it seems that Grandpa's Dear Italian Fairy Godmother must be waiting and watching to see if I am worthy to share in her many cooking adventures. I sure hope she enlightens me soon. I want to make both her and Grandpa proud. Maybe someday soon, one or both of them will send down some interesting goodies for me to add to my collection. And then, of course I will share them with all of you!

I know that March is the month of St. Patrick's Day and the Irish, however this recipe is not an Irish tradition…but it is GREEN! I hope you like it!

Andrea’s Chicken Enchilada’s

  • 1 pkg cream cheese
  • 1 cup of salsa
  • 2 cans green chilies sauce
  • 8 burrito size tortillas

Here’s what you do:

Heat 2 tablespoons of oil in large skillet,
Cook chicken on all sides, and drain excess fat
Add cream cheese, mix well
Stir in salsa until mixed
