Food definitely contributes to abundant family living and we love to eat.  I'll tell you up front that I'm not a great cook.  I've never really enjoyed it, but I'm learning to like it more and more now that our kids are all grown up and I have more time to spend in the kitchen.  The recipes I'll be sharing with you on this blog will be recipes that are easy to prepare with common ingredients. 

Easy Chicken Enchiladas


Here is what you will need:
1 10.5oz. can of condenses cream of chicken soup
1 cup of sour cream
1/2 cup of picante sauce
1/2 cup of salsa

Pam cooking spray
4 cups of chopped cooked chicken (I cheated and used 2 bags of frozen grilled chicken.)
2 cups of Mexican blend shredded cheese 
Salt and pepper to taste
9 large soft tortillas

Instructions:
1.  Heat your oven to 350 degrees.
