Chicken Enchiladas


I was cleaning out my pantry and came across some TJ’s enchilada sauce that I hadn’t used yet… so I roughly followed this recipe (substituting enchilada sauce for salsa and putting chicken and cheese inside) and topped with avocado, olives and cilantro.

Banh Mi Sandwich 

Bahn Mi Sandwich

I love this blog and I love Banh Mi, so when I saw this variation (I typically make it with meatballs), I had to jump on it!  And boy was it worth it… KILLER marinade, and I topped it with a perfectly fried egg and deliciously pickled veggies…. yum!

  2. Add 3 thinly sliced peaches, 1/2 of a thinly sliced red onion, 1 Tablespoon mined jalapeno and 2 cups cooked shredded chicken. Toss well to coat.
