coffee talk {all about the food}

linking up with Nat :):

1. Pancakes or waffles?
French toast.  Not huge on either pancakes OR waffles…dunno why.  Although, pancakes with whipped cream & strawberries are quite delish!

2. What is your go-to meal?
I have a lot of meals I make with regularity!  I’ve been trying to make homemade meals a lot more often lately (better for our health AND bank account lol) and my faves (as of this week haha) are lasagna and chicken enchiladas.  And I shall now share my new enchilada recipe because it is {frankly} the best food ever.  Except my lasagna. Which has no real recipe because I never use exact measurements of anything.
Chicken “Enchiladas” 
You will need:
3-4 chicken breasts, cooked & shredded (boil ‘em for like 20 minutes, throw them in the stand mixer with the paddle on for a couple minutes and you’re set!)
1 packet taco seasoning
Approx 1 cup of sour cream
Taco sauce
1 can diced green chilies (9 oz or something)
Lots of cheese.
Soft tortilla shells
Put shredded chicken with some oil in a big frying pan, with taco seasoning & water (like how you’d make taco meat if using beef).  Once mixture is thickened, put chicken in big bowl.  Add ¾ cup of sour cream (or more, to taste), some taco sauce (just pour it on in there), can of chilies, and cheese.  Mix it all up.  It will look gross.  Take reserved sour cream & remaining taco sauce and mix that up.  Then put like a tablespoon of that mix and spread it around a fajita shell.  Plop some of your chicken mix in the middle, with MORE cheese.  Roll it up like a burrito, placing folded side down on a greased 13x9 pan (this is easier if  you line the pan with tinfoil.  Spray cooking spray on it…once you’re done with the meal, you throw out the foil and have less of a mess to clean up. Win win win).  Bake in a 375 degree oven for 25-30 minutes.  Presto – friggin delish.

3. What is your "must have" snack while watching a movie/TV show?
chips & dip.  Dip = Bison French Onion dip.  If you don’t live in Western New York, you have NEVER had real chips & dip.  Sorry, but it’s true.

4. What is your guilt food(the kind where you are sad, lonely, etc. )?
Chocolate. And chips & dip.  I could pretty much eat chips & dip all day erry day.
5. What kind of food do you eat that is so disgusting to others and you are embarrassed to tell? Come on! Fess up!
Actually most food I eat is similar to what a picky five year old would eat.  I don’t like too many weird food combos…the closest to “gross” would be French fries with blue cheese dip.  (seriously, any combination of a dip is my weakness…legit) (so I say “legit” like a lot. A lot a lot.  And every time I’m like “too legit, too legit to quit”. What’s up MC Hammer??)
