New Recipe, Thrifty Find & A Present for Me!!
I came across this recipe in the latest issue of BHG and had to make it. We had my husband's parents over for dinner last nigh for their anniversary so it was the perfect opportunity to try it out.
There was a lot of prep work involved but I think it was worth it and I would def make it again.
I cut the cooked chicken into small pieces.
Added the rest of the ingredients for the filling.
What I love about this recipe is that it's Mexican, but the filling goes into cooked pasta shells! So unique, but SOOOO good!
Here it is with the Doritos on top.
Everyone LOVED it and since I put everything together in advance, I was able to do all of the dishes and have no cleanup after dinner!
If you'd like to make this, I've included the recipe at the bottom of this post.
But first, I forgot to show one of my yard sale finds in my thrifty post over the weekend. I squealed when I saw these rattan chargers as I have been looking for some to have on hand. I was able to purchase 10 of them for only $3! Yippeeee!!!
While I was cooking there was a knock at the door. I opened it to find a package on my doorstep! Me LOVE getting packages!!!
I spy a label from Ballard's!
And inside, a new catalog and a note congratulating me on winning Rhoda's giveaway over at Southern Hospitality!
I won this sweet rustic lantern - perfect for my rustic family room!
Thanks again Rhoda you sweet Southern thang! I just love it and I can't thank you enough for offering this generous giveaway.
Of course I spent last night perusing my new catalog for some treats. Me thinks me gonna splurge on a gift for myself....
So I'll end this random post with the recipe mentioned above. I'd love to hear if you make it, but only if you liked it! Ha!
