Shrimp Spring Rolls with Tangy Citrus Sauce

Ingredients
Preparation time: 15 minutes
Cooking time: 5 minutes.

4 eight-inch circular spring roll skins
Warm water
2 ounces rice sticks
1 small (6-inch) cucumber
8 small shrimp (50- to 60-per-pound size), cooked and peeled
2 green onions
Handful of fresh cilantro sprigs
1/4 cup prepared duck sauce
1 teaspoon minced ginger
1 tablespoon unsweetened or fresh orange juice

Directions
Yield: 4 servings
Serving size: 1 shrimp roll with about 1 tablespoon sauce

Dipping sauce:

1 – In a large pie pan or shallow casserole dish, place 1 spring roll skin so it lies flat. Pour in enough warm water to cover the skin by at least 1/2 inch. Allow it to soften about 2 minutes. Carefully transfer the skin, allowing excess water to drip off, to a serving plate. Repeat with each skin.

2 – Fill a 2-quart saucepan three-quarters full of water, place over medium heat, and bring to a boil. Add the rice sticks and cook approximately 3–5 minutes until softened. Drain well and allow to cool. Peel cucumber and cut off 1/2 inch from each end. Cut cucumber in half horizontally. Cut each half lengthwise into strips, about 1/2 inch thick; you will need 16 cucumber strips total for the rolls. (Store any extra cucumber in refrigerator if desired or discard.) Cut each shrimp in half, lengthwise, and set aside. Remove root end from green onions with a sharp knife. Cut a 4-inch segment from the white part of each onion, and split in half lengthwise. Combine all sauce ingredients in a small bowl and mix with a fork or small whisk.

3 – To make the spring rolls, start by placing approximately 1/4 cup drained rice sticks in a column in the center of each skin. Place 2 pieces of cut cucumber on either side of the rice sticks (4 pieces total per skin). Top rice sticks with 4 halves of shrimp, equally spaced, and top with half an onion segment and 2 sprigs of fresh cilantro. Beginning at one edge, parallel to the column of filling, fold the skin over the column. Fold the top and bottom of the skin toward the middle to enclose the filling. Roll from the center toward the final edge of the skin, using your fingers to center the filling as you roll. Serve immediately at room temperature, or chill if desired. Serve with dipping sauce.

Chicken Enchiladas

Today’s Menu: Chicken Enchiladas

 

 

I had to be at the Doctor’s Office at 8:00. So no Breakfast until I got back. For Breakfast just a cup of Bigelow Decaf Green Tea. 88 degrees and partly sunny out today. After Breakfast I went to Kroger to pick up some of the ingredients I need to make tonight’s Dinner, Chicken Enchiladas. After Lunch I got the cart out and did some yard work. Helped out one of my neighbors do some yard work also. As I said for Dinner tonight it’s my Mom’s favorite, Chicken Enchiladas.

 

 

I had not made these in quite a while. So earlier I went to Kroger after and picked up a Simple Life Rotisserie Chicken. Love these Roasters from Simple Truth that the Kroger Deli prepare. Always delicious and good size Roasters. I pulled all the Meat and put it in a plastic container and set it in the fridge until ready to use.

 

 

 

To make the Enchiladas I’ll need the following; Mission Carb Friendly Flour Tortillas, 2 tablespoon Roasted Ground Cumin, 2 tablespoon Chili Powder (plus more for sprinkling), 2 tablespoons Cajun Spice, 1 teaspoon Sea Salt, 1 teaspoon freshly Ground Black Pepper, 1 Kroger Simple Truth Rotisserie Chicken (pulled meat ), Extra Light Olive Oil, 1/2 medium Red Onion (diced), Three 15-ounce cans Red Enchilada Sauce (or use Green if preferred!), 3 cups of Sargento Reduced Fat 4 Cheese Mexican (plus more if needed), Daisy Reduced Fat Sour cream (for serving), and Chopped fresh Cilantro (for serving).

 

 

I already pulled all the Meat of the Rotisserie Chicken and had it in the fridge, try not snacking on the Chicken as you’re doing this (good luck). Put the pulled Chicken in a bowl and set aside. To prepare them I preheated the oven to 350 degrees F. I’ve been using Mission Carb Friendly Tortilla for a while now. One at a time, held the Tortillas over the stove top burner (heated to medium heat) to brown slightly, about 20 seconds per side. Set the warmed Tortillas aside. In a bowl, mix together the Cumin, Chili Powder, Cajun Spice, salt and pepper. Add the pulled Chicken to the Spice Mix. Heat the oil in a skillet over medium heat add the Chicken until heated through and remove the Chicken from the skillet and set aside. In the same skillet; and add the Onions to the skillet, stir them around and cook until deep golden brown and caramelized, 4 to 5 minutes; and set them aside on a plate. Pour the Enchilada Sauce into the skillet and reduce the heat to low, allowing it to warm through.

 

To make the enchiladas: Pour 2 cups of the Sauce (Old El Paso Enchilada Sauce) into a 9-by-13-inch Casserole Dish and leave the rest in the skillet. Dip a Tortilla into the Sauce in the skillet, then lay it on a baking sheet or plate. Sprinkle some Cheese down the middle, followed by some Chicken and finally, some of the Caramelized Onions. Roll it up tightly, then place it seam-side down in the Casserole Dish. Repeat with the rest of the Tortillas. Pour the rest of the Sauce over the Enchiladas, then sprinkle on the rest of the Cheese. Give it a final sprinkling of Chili Powder. Bake until hot and bubbly, 30 minutes at 375 degrees. Let it sit for 15 minutes before serving.

 

Serve the enchiladas topped with a dollop of sour cream, a sprinkling of cilantro. And time to enjoy these Enchiladas! Hot, Cheesy, and Flavorful! Another one of those Keeper Recipes courtesy of Ree Drummond of the Food Network. The original recipe is at the end of the post. For Dessert/Snack later a bowl of Skinny Pop – Pop Corn and a Coke Zero to drink.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Chicken Enchiladas

Ingredients
10 to 12 corn tortillas
2 tablespoons cumin
2 tablespoons chili powder, plus more for sprinkling
2 tablespoons Cajun spice
1 teaspoon salt
1 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper
2 boneless, skinless chicken breasts
1/4 cup vegetable oil
1 large onion, diced
Three 15-ounce cans green enchilada sauce (or use red if preferred!)
3 cups grated Cheddar-Jack cheese, plus more if needed
Sour cream, for serving
Diced tomatoes, for serving
Chopped fresh cilantro, for serving
Lime wedges, for serving

Directions
1 – Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F.

2 – One at a time, hold the tortillas over the stove top burner (heated to medium heat) to brown slightly, about 30 seconds per side. Set the warmed tortillas aside

3 – In a bowl, mix together the cumin, chili powder, Cajun spice, salt and pepper. Sprinkle both sides of the chicken breasts with the spice mix.

4 – Heat the oil in a skillet over medium heat and cook the chicken on both sides until done in the middle and the juices run clear, 4 to 5 minutes per side. Set aside on a plate to cool, then shred finely with a fork.

5 – Throw the onions into the same skillet, stir them around and cook until deep golden brown and caramelized, 4 to 5 minutes; set them aside on a plate. Pour the enchilada sauce into the skillet and reduce the heat to low, allowing it to warm through.

6 – To assemble the enchiladas: Pour 2 cups of the sauce into a 9-by-13-inch casserole dish and leave the rest in the skillet. Dip a tortilla into the sauce in the skillet, then lay it on a baking sheet or plate. Sprinkle some cheese down the middle, followed by some chicken and finally, some of the caramelized onions. Roll it up tightly, then place it seam-side down in the casserole dish. Repeat with the rest of the tortillas. Pour the rest of the sauce over the enchiladas, then sprinkle on the rest of the cheese. Give it a final sprinkling of chili powder.

7 – Bake until hot and bubbly, 30 minutes. Let it sit for 15 to 20 minutes before serving.
