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.
