May’s Meal: Chicken Enchiladas

Chicken enchiladas have nothing to do with 19th-century British literature. But we’ve never concerned ourselves with matching our dinners to our books. Our dinner rotations work like this: the person who picks the book also hosts the dinner and discussion. The remaining members divide up the rest of the meal among them: usually, someone brings alcohol, someone brings an appetizer or salad, and someone brings dessert. For our Tenant discussion, I made chicken enchiladas, thedarklady made margaritas, marionevans brought chips and salsa, and talesfromthebookshelf made a chocolate tart.

The enchiladas refused to roll properly, so in frustration I created something that was more like an enchilada casserole: I layered the tortillas and filling like I would in a lasagna. I also omitted the jalapenos and only used 2 chipotles. It was pleasantly spicy still. I also made some Uncle Ben’s Fiesta rice as a side dish. Our margaritas and chips and salsa were great, and we all managed to save enough room for some of the heavenly chocolate tart. We’re getting this down to a science now.
