 Creamy, Cheesy Chicken Enchiladas


It’s May already!  Time just seems to fly by, doesn’t it?

No matter how you feel, it’s time for Americans to celebrate Cinco de Mayo, which by now, I hope most of you realize is not even celebrated in Mexico!  Just another great reason to party, have a great time, and enjoy great Mexican food here in the States!

OK, so I know that these are not Italian recipes, but my husband and I love Mexican food!  So I’m sharing the few and far between, delicious Mexican recipes that I consider in my family to be some of the best Cinco de Mayo recipes that I make over and over again by request of those in my Italian family that love Mexican food just as much as we do!  Hey, even native Italians enjoy eating American hamburgers once in awhile!

What you see here on this post is just about all of the Mexican recipes that I’ve prepared .  .  . those of you have followed me over the years know that we eat out to satisfy our need for our Mexican food ‘fix’.  Because we have some awesome Mexican eateries in town, I just can’t rival them in my home kitchen!  We’re even known by our first name in these places.  And if we don’t show up once a week for our weekly Mexican food fix, they ask “where the heck have you been?”

Now here are our favorite ‘at home’ Mexican recipes that I hope that you enjoy and let me know what you and your family and/or guests enjoyed!
