Chicken, Cheese & Tomatillo Enchiladas

We enjoyed a roast chicken on Sunday. I always enjoy the various meals I can make from one organic chicken. After the roast chicken I deboned it and used the meat for tonights dinner then put all the bones in drippings into a large Dutch oven and simmered for a couple of hours. Removed the bones, strained and refrigerated it so the fat would surface, thus making it easier to skim the fat off. This made a wonderfully rich chicken stock that was so dark it looked like beef stock rather than chicken. It will make a beautiful meal down the road but for now I froze this for use later on. Tonight with the chicken that I removed I made Chicken, Cheese & Tomatillo Enchiladas. I always make a little extra tomatillo sauce for a great salsa with chips for a weekend movie. It’s a real treat and the flavor is unmatched. There’s a little zing in the tomatillos that you just don’t find in anything else. Continue reading

I think you see my point. Continue reading

Salmon is one of our favorite fishes to consume, especially wild caught sockeye. It has such a wonderful flavor, so flaky and mild.

We’ve made it with pecan coating, teriyaki and many others, however this is one of my all time favorites. Continue reading
