Sour Cream Chicken Enchiladas

This is a Sponsored post written by me on behalf of McCormick & Company for SocialSpark. All opinions are 100% mine.

Family dinner time is sacred around our home. We sit up to dinner every single night together. Sometimes it’s rushed, rarely it’s out to eat, on the occasional Friday we make a picnic with pizza for our movie night.  Around the dinner table is the only set time that we have to be together as a family–engaging in conversation that includes everyone. I aim to make meals around my kids pickiness because I want dinner time to be pleasant for all involved. I’ve got a few tricks up my sleeve to bring out conversation, but it’s mostly a happy time. As a momma, that’s all I want–happy.

I’ve been trying to expand my cooking repertoire lately. The past three months we’ve had my husbands’ sister and her little family living with us. In exchange for room and board, she cooks dinner every other night, and it’s taken the monotony out of cooking for me. It’s been nice to have that little break, and I get more excited to experiment a little with new recipes.

Enchiladas were a staple a round my house growing up. I shared a month or so ago our family favorite Quick and Easy Beef Enchiladas, which my kids currently love. I had a friend in high school whose mom made the most delicious creamy chicken enchiladas. I thought I’d try my hand at them for a little change.  I got the recipe from the McCormick site, and used their recipe with the enchilada sauce mix packet.  I’ve been compensated for this post  to try out this recipe, but all opinions are my own. Sour Cream Chicken Enchiladas Using the McCormick seasoning really makes the recipe quick and painless. I had some issues with photographing this recipe, but they were REALLY delicious! I was worried my kids wouldn’t go for the green chili’s inside, but they weren’t detected–yipee!!

  2. Enchiladas are true comfort food for me. My mother use to make them all the time when we were growing up. They remind me of home!

    I love the favors of McCormick seasoning. I’ve used the Encililada one for years. In fact, I brought a whole boxful of assorted favorings -including spaghetti, taco, enchilada, stroganoff and A’joux mix so I’d have familiar spices while I’m in Africa. I’m still a big fan of beef enchiladas with red sauce! I’d like to try sweet & smoky pulled chicken. Will they send the gift set to Africa?

  5. honestly it is almost 50/50 but I probably lean more toward a red sauce and beef

  6. I’d love to try the Cuban Grilled Chicken with Salsa Fresca. We’ll be trying this recipe out soon.

  7. Enchiladas are hands down our family’s favorite. I’ll have to give this recipe a try. Yum!
