Frannie's Fixin's & Cookin' Tips

Fried foods ... who likes the smell? The mess ...
Here's what you do:

Put a small bowl of white household vinegar next to the stove to prevent that horrid *there some fat a burnin'* smell. Trust me .. really, this does the trick!

Here are some good eats ... with a twist ...

Spicy Chicken & Pistachio Enchiladas

Here's what ya need:

1 lb fresh tomatillos; (you can use canned tomatillos, fresh is better)
2 garlic cloves; peeled
2 jalapeno peppers; seeded
2 tb fresh cilantro leaves
2 tb chopped onion
1/3 cup sour cream
1/3 cup plain yogurt
1/4 ts salt
1/3 cup canned diced green chilies
6 corn tortillas
2 cup cooked shredded chicken
2 cup shredded pepper jack cheese
1 cup chopped pistachio’s

Here's what ya do:

If using fresh tomatillos, prepare by washing and removing husks.
Place in saucepan, cover with water and simmer until tender, about 5
to 7 minutes; drain.
If using canned tomatillos, drain and discard liquid.
For sauce, mince garlic, jalapenos, cilantro and onions in blender.
Add drained tomatillos, sour cream, yogurt, and salt; puree.
Mix in green chilies and set aside.
Soften tortillas either by frying on both sides in a small amount of
olive or corn oil. In the center of each tortilla, put aprox. 2 tbs each of chicken, sauce and cheese. Add about 2 tbs chopped pistachio.
Pour 1/4 of the sauce in the bottom of a greased 9x12-inch baking dish.
Place filled enchiladas in dish and pour remaining sauce over top.
Sprinkle with remaining cheese and then with pistachio’s.
Bake at 375 oven until heated through (cheese should bubble) maybe 20 minutes or so.

So you don't like Pistachio's ... add any other kind of nut -- or don't add any at ... its still good!

Monday, Monday ... so glad Monday is D.O.N.E!
