Skinny Taste Chicken Enchiladas


Mikayla and I made some Enchiladas from a recipe on skinnytaste you can click the link here ( skinnytaste skinny enchiladas) or read it below .

I’m a bit upset that we did not get a end result photo, but my memory card locked.

  • 2 garlic cloves, minced
  • 1-2 tbsp chipotle chilis in adobo sauce
  • 1-1/2 cups tomato sauce
  • 1/2 tsp chipotle chili powder
  • 1/2 tsp ground cumin
  • 3/4 cup reduced sodium chicken broth
  • kosher salt and fresh pepper to taste

For the chicken:

  • 1 tsp vegetable oil
  • 8.5 oz (2 breast halves) cooked shredded chicken breast
  • 1 cup diced onion
  • 2 large clove garlic, minced
  • 1/4 cup cilantro
  • kosher salt
  • 1 tsp cumin
  • 1/2 tsp dried oregano
  • 1 tsp chipotle chili powder
  • 1/3 cup chicken broth
  • 1/2 cup tomato sauce

For the enchilada:

  • 8 (7-inch) low-carb whole wheat flour tortillas (la tortilla factory )
  • 1 cup shredded low fat Mexican cheese
  • non-stick cooking spray
  • 2 tbsp chopped scallions or cilantro for topping


  1. In a medium saucepan, spray oil and sauté garlic. Add chipotle chiles , chili powder, cumin, chicken broth, tomato sauce, salt and pepper. Bring to a boil. Reduce the heat to low and simmer for 5-10 minutes. Set aside until ready to use.

  3. Heat the vegetable oil in a medium skillet over medium-high heat. Sauté onions and garlic on low until soft, about 2 minutes. Add chicken, salt, cilantro, cumin, oregano, chili powder, tomato sauce, chicken broth, and cook 4 to 5 minutes. Remove from heat.
  4. Spray a 13 by 9-inch glass baking dish with non-stick spray. Put 1/3 cup chicken mixture into each tortilla and roll it.
  5. Place on baking dish seam side down, top with sauce.
  6. Then top with cheese.
  7. Cover with aluminum foil and bake in the oven on the middle rack for 20-25 minutes. Top with low fat sour cream or scallions if you wish. (Extra points) Makes 8 enchiladas.

Snow Day Pup


Yesterday we had a snow day so I decided to take my Basset Hound mix out into the snow and he loved it! I hate the snow, but it makes the trees look so beautiful. Especially when the sun began to come out.

Well I hope you all have a great weekend 🙂

Sledding at Washington Park



Aw look at those love birds


Emma is a Minion deep down in her heart



Ben carrying up the tube for Eva… how sweet



They were looking for me 🙂



Up close and personal


Ben, he failed…


DSCN0349DSCN0347DSCN0346DSCN0345After we got a couple inches of snow we decided to get the group together and go sledding at Washington Park. I personally didn’t last very long because we made poor choices and put five people onto the tube and ran into some metal bleachers. I of course was the baby and went back to Eva’s house and watched movies with her mom.

After everyone got back to the house we had homemade soup  and some hot cocoa. We later had a blast playing the game Redneck Life

Hope you guys are having a great week and are enjoying the weather wherever you are 🙂
