White Chicken Enchiladas

This is one of mine and my family's favorite Pinterest Recipes. I have tried many recipes, some have failed, some have turned out ok, but this one is by far the best in our books!!! Its hard to find something that we will all eat and all really enjoy. I always make a batch of these along with homemade salsa and guacamole with chips. Hope you enjoy it as much as we do!
White Chicken Enchiladas
10 soft taco shells

2 cups cooked, shredded chicken (We love cheese, so I add lots more)

2 cups shredded Monterey Jack cheese

3 Tbsp. butter

3 Tbsp. flour

2 cups chicken broth

1 cup sour cream

1 (4 oz) can diced green chillies
I also use tooth picks if the shells are not staying rolled tightly.

1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Grease a 9x13 pan

2. Mix chicken and 1 cup cheese. Roll up in tortillas and place in pan.

3. In a sauce pan, melt butter, stir in flour and cook 1 minute. Add broth and whisk until smooth. Heat over medium heat until thick and bubbly.

4. Stir in sour cream and chilies. Do not bring to boil, you don't want curdled sour cream.

5. Pour over enchiladas and top with remaining cheese.

6. Bake 22 min and then under high broil for 3 min to brown the cheese.

DIY Cupcake Stand

DIY Cupcake Stand
My Easy $6 cupcake stand
Supplies: All came from D.G.
1. 3 plates
2. 3 glasses. I used Margarita glasses for the top 2 and a regular cup upside down for the base.
3. Glue gun/glue sticks
All plates and cups were $1 a piece :)
I played around with the design to make sure I found the way I like it most.
Then just heat gun and glue!!!
So easy and super cheap, now we have a pretty Springy cupcake stand for our Easter cupcakes!
Ive made cupcake stands in the past, I used glass plates and glass candle stick holders all from The Dollar Store. But I'am really liking the plastic better since I have 5 kids. This makes me feel safer when I have lots of little hands rushing to grab cupcakes lol.
Here's a pic of the different designs I tried before picking the one above.
