OMG this all sounds so good!

I LOVE green chile chicken enchiladas! Those are my favorite!

There was a restaurant I use to go to where I use to live and OMG they had the best enchiladas. I would eat the entire plate and for me that is a big deal. I always have left overs. I would sit and let it settle then finish it off!

I might have to make this Sunday if not one day next week. This weekend I am testing out Baddmoves stuffed mushrooms.

I really think there should be an ATS cook book with conspiracy related names!
