store bought favorite: tj's enchilada sauce










My husband texted me this picture of our glass recycle bin so I would begin to comprehend my consumption of this dream sauce- Trader Joe's bottled enchilada sauce.  There's nothing like it!  It started with one innocent bottle and has led to enchilada-eating that has grown to out-of-control proportions.  I admit it- I eat an enchilada for breakfast and lunch every day.  Every single day (except when I'm on vacation and there's no Trader Joes to be found).  I know.  It's weird.  But I ask you to just try an enchilada the way I make them.  Fresh every time.  Now my kids are asking for them.  I introduced them to my mother when she was in town and she has since introduced them to my brother and his wife.  It's a thing.  I'm telling you...

1 tortilla (I use whole wheat tortillas)
a nice scoop of shredded chicken (cooked in the crock pot with some salsa)
shredded mozzarella cheese (my kids prefer Cheddar but I prefer lower fat)

Place a tortilla on a microwave proof plate.  Spread a line of chicken across one end of the tortilla.  Pour some enchilada sauce over the top and a little cheese.  Roll up.  Pour more enchilada sauce over the top.  Be totally generous with the sauce- don't hold back.  Sprinkle with cheese.  Microwave for 1 minute 45 seconds.
