  • [smirking]  With
    the exception of refried beans  -  he's not there yet 
    -  the indoctrination is almost complete.  Tonight for supper
    we had Enchilada Verde Casserole (fancy name for a simple dish off the
    label of a Campbell soup can), and Dmitry absolutely loved it:

    Verde Enchilada Casserole

    1 can Campbell's Creamy Chicken Verde soup

    1/2 cup water

    1/2 teaspoon garlic powder

    2 cups cubed cooked chicken

    4 flour tortillas (8"), cut into strips

    1/2 cup shredded cheddar cheese

    Preheat oven to 350 degrees.

    Spray a 2 quart shallow baking dish with non-stick spray

    In a bowl, mix soup, water, garlic powder and chicken.

    Stir in tortillas

    Spread mixture into the baking dish and top with cheese.

    Cover and bake for 25 minutes or until hot.

    Serves 4  (I just used a dusting of garlic powder, BTW, and dumped a bit of sour cream on each serving.)

    It tastes like nachos, he exclaimed as he helped himself to
    seconds.  He now happily munches nachos, Mexican pizza, tacos,
    fajitas, and most other types of Mexican food, including the Mexican
    rice.

  • Sounds yummy, but was it green?
    =8^o

  • Well, no. No, it wasn't. There were bits of green chilies in it, which is where the "verde" comes from.

  • I bet if you got some of those spinach-infused tortillas, it would be!

    Oooh, or you could add avocados to the mix.

  • But then *I* wouldn't eat it, Kurt. =8^ o

  • Yeah, green meat is just wrong.

    Although, my daddy did one time put food coloring in our breakfast so we could eat green eggs and ham.

  • Don't like avocados? And you live in Texas?

    I think it's just a front, and you're from Minnesota or something.

  • Avocados are fine....it was the spinach tortillas that I'm rejecting.

    Tortillas aren't made of spinach. It's an abomination. >:^<

  • Kurt, dear, I'm in Virginia now.  I'm hurt, really hurt that you missed this huge change in my life.

    P.S.  I love avocados.  It was only green meat I was objecting to.

  • Ah, yes, green meat is not good. I can't think of any time that meat should be greenish. Well, maybe in some green curries...you can't knock curry!

    And, Mrs. Cumbee, I didn't forget, honest. I was replying to Anne's "I wouldn't eat it" remark.

    As far as the green tortillas go, don't knock 'em until you've gone to Freebird's and tried a Monster Burrito with a spinach tortilla. It's-a good-a!

  • Mea culpa, mea culpa, mea maxima culpa!

    (Note to self:  It's not all about you.)
