The Whole Enchilada – no Jars ๐Ÿ˜‡

Chicken is on my meal plan, and as I had a pack of Aldi,s lovely Garlic Wraps to use, I thought Enchiladas would be a change.

I started with the sauce, into the Thermomix bowl, I added a peeled onion (halved) and ย  2 peeled cloves of garlic, a wiz for 3 seconds at speed 6, then scrape the bowl down and add a couple of glug of olive oil- cook for 3 minutes Varoma heat speed 1.

Meanwhile, I slice another onion, a Clove or 2 of minced garlic and chop a red pepper up.

Not out of date – frozen then defrosted๐Ÿ˜Š

I take a pack of Aldi Chicken Thighs and remove the skin and bone and chop into half to an inch pieces.

Add the veg to a hot oiled pan, then add the diced raw chicken, stir in a crushed chicken stock cube and cook till cooked through.

To construct the dish, preheat an oven to 180, and take an oven tray big enough to take the width of the wraps.

Take a wrap, add a couple of heaped spoons of the chicken mix, fold into a roll and add to the pan ‘seam’ side down – continue till you have used up all the Chicken – my quantities filled 6.

Serve with a side salad, and some nachos- maybe a cheeky beer ๐Ÿบ

Hi - I'm a 49 yo Mum to 3 kids - Jordan (23), Grace (21) and Max (19). And Wife to my lovely Husband, Dave and step mum to 4 fur babies, our cats Eric, Ernie, Cilla and Bobbie. We live on the beautiful Isle of Wight, Hubby and I were born here, and just love our home. As I hurtle towards 50, my life as a full time (working) parent is coming to an end, with my eldest 2 kids living their own lives, and my youngest who started University in September. I realised that this is not a time to be sad, but a time to take time to spend time on some of the things I enjoy doing - mainly cooking, crafting and creating Pinterest boards for said thing s :) This blog is just a way for me to record the next stages of our lives - I hope you enjoy my ramblings...
