Cheesy goodness is what this meal has going on! YUM-ME! It's full of flavor and we made the enchilada sauce instead of buying it.

This way we could also make these a skillet meal instead of an oven meal. In Arizona it's just... Read more →

Simple meal that tastes great! We used Thrive freeze dried seasoned chicken slices for this one since we wanted larger chicken pieces than the Thrive chopped chicken.
