A Chicken Recipe and New Blog & Etsy Design Services

It's been ages since I posted, but I wanted to share a quick recipe with you.

I love things that are easy. Who doesn't? One of my favorite recipe jumpstarts is the store bought rotisserie chicken, and it's even better when you get them half off which happens at my store after 8 pm! One chicken usually gets us at least two meals.

I just searched my pantry to come up with a great meal.

Chicken Roll-Ups



1 rotisserie chicken, shredded
1/2 cup chopped onion
1 Tbsp minced garlic
1 cup chicken broth
2 Tbsp chili powder
1/2 - 1 cup sour cream
2 cups shredded cheese (we like it cheesy around here!)
Corn tortillas (about a dozen)

Heat a small amount of olive oil in a skillet and saute onions until clear and soft. Add garlic and saute for a couple of minutes. Add shredded chicken, chili powder and chicken broth and bring to a boil. Cover and simmer on low for 20-30 minutes. Uncover, and simmer 10 more minutes, or until liquid is reduced. Remove from heat.

Wrap a stack of tortillas in a clean towel and microwave for two minutes. This will make the tortillas soft enough to roll without hardening them.

To the chicken, add the sour cream and half the shredded cheese and stir. Place a generous spoonful in the center of a tortilla and place in a 9"x12" pan, seam side down. Repeat until the pan is full.

At this point, you could cover with salsa or enchilada sauce, but I didn't have either on hand, plus I actual prefer them "dry."

Top with remaining cheese, cover loosely with foil and bake for 20 minutes. Remove foil and bake for an additional 5 minutes.

They turned out a little like taquitos, a bit crunchy on the ends. This got a thumbs up from my picky eaters, I'm sure your family will love it too!

I wish I could be spending more time here at Betty Crocker Wannabe, but my real life is taking me away from blogging more than expected. I am, however, expanding my Blog Design Shop. Have an Etsy shop in need of a new design? In the market for a new business card? Just need to freshen up your blog design? Stop by Simply Klassic Designs and see what's new!

Glad to 'see' you again. This looks great. We like it cheesy too so 2 cups sounds so good to me.

I can't wait to hear all about your new addition :)

Yum! Have you tried the new Philadelphia cooking creme? Sante Fe blend is incredible. How's little sister?

Sounds like a great recipe, Kristin. I'm going to have to try this one. My oldest likes anything that involves a tortilla.

I love this recipe ! Reminds me of you making soap at home, Mom.
And it's fun to see photos of your house there and see
Dad in that comfy chair we sat in when we visited,
attempting to use the slow internet :)

I can't wait to hear how the soap turned out in terms
of using it. Does it smell different since it is made with
animal fat? Any other differences from vegetable-based soap?

Love you!
