White Chicken Enchiladas with Greek Yogurt and Green Chili Sauce

I am in a cooking rut. I just really haven't been in the mood lately which I don't like when I get into this mode. It is sometimes hard to get motivated which is where having the food network channel always helped me! This is one of the reasons I wanted to start this blog. As a way to reflect on past recipes I have tried and get inspiration for supper. I also wanted to be able to help my friends and family come up with new supper ideas. 

All recipes that are on this blog I have made myself and taken my own photos. {I'm working on improving my food photography skills, I just want to prove to you I did make the recipes!} I only post recipes that I thought are worth making and are ones that I would make again.

This supper was a good surprise! I was really feeling enchiladas but wanted to try something new. I had run out of sour cream so I used greek yogurt and it turned out really yummy. The sauce is quite tasty. Try this version of enchiladas to mix it up ;)

  1. Yummmy, Laura! This is a family favorite of ours:) Great idea using the Greek Yogurt. It's healthier that way, too!
