Tamales are the one thing I don't make. I keep begging my mother to teach me but it hasn't happened yet.

We make Kidney healthy chicken enchiladas.
Boil chicken with a lemon, pepper corns, a little salt, bay leaf, and a handful of garlic. Cook it until is shreds easily with a fork.

Saute diced onions, green bell peppers and red bell peppers.

Make mashed potatoes add cream cheese and cumin, oregano, powdered garlic, and a pinch of celery salt.

Mix the saute mix, potatoes and chicken together.

Heat corn tortilla's until they are flexible but not crunchy. Stuff the tortillas with the mix and place in a baking pan. Back at 350degrees until golden. If you like add enchilada sauce before backing, we like to do it after for the added crunch factor.

Sprinkle cheese on the hot enchiladas and serve. 3 or 4 per person usually is more then enough.

We also use the mix to make chicken/potato tacos. If you have too much mix for one meal, the mix will freeze beautifully and will be just as tasty when defrosted. We usually wrap all the mix and freeze in the taco so that we can just pull them out of the freezer and into the oven without even defrosting. Makes a great quick home made dinner.
