What’s For Dinner? El Paso Chicken Enchiladas

Enter to win a Kindle Fire!



Last night as I was running behind on planning dinner, I did a quick hunt through my pantry to figure out what on earth we could muster up for a meal!  I found several Old El Paso Kits in my cupboards, as well as the last bit of frozen boneless, skinless chicken breast in my freezer.  Because I didn’t want to go to the store for any big purchases, I figured surely something could be made with what we had!  All the items are on sale this week at Publix, so even if you don’t have them in your pantry, this should make a pretty frugal (yummy!) meal this week for your family too.
