Pinterest...and a super yummy dinner

Well, if you haven't discovered Pinteret yet, you just don't know what you are missing.  I am completely addicted, have thousands of pins and feel lost if I don't check it once a day.  One of my favorite things to pin is yummy recipes.  I have all kinds of soup, crock pot dishes, cupcakes, drinks....Now one of my goals this year is to start using/doing some of the things I have pinned...so in that spirit I used a recipe from there to create dinner.  To start with you need to make the chicken...

Mexican Crock Pot Chicken
1 3-lb bag of frozen, boneless, skinless chicken breasts or tenderloins
1 can of corn, drained
1 can Ro-tel
1 can black beans, rinsed & drained
1 8 oz block of cream cheese

Place chicken in crock pot.  Add corn, Rotelle, beans; to with cream cheese.  low 6-8 hours.  After an hour or so I stir in the melted cream cheese & continue to stir every 2 hours.  Once done cooking, remove chicken pieces & shred; then mix back in. 

This in itself is a yummy meal, but I decided to go a step further.  Here is what I did...

I used flour tortillas, a can of enchilada sauce and a bag of shredded Mexican cheese.

I covered the bottom of a 13x9 casserole dish with a little of the enchilada sauce.  I then filled the tortillas with about 1/2 C of the chicken mixture, rolled and placed seam down in the dish.  I made 6 filled tortillas.  Once your dish is full, cover with about a cup of the enchilada sauce; top with cheese.  Place in a 350 degree oven for 20-30 minutes until heated through, bubbly on top.  Serve with sour cream on top.  Ole!

And, best part, I have half the mixture to freeze for another meal :)
