Upside Down
followed the recipe (did use the microwave to boil the spiced water) and i'm sold! i am no expert cook, but i enjoyed going past my comfort level with this recipe.... after five ingridients i get nervous! but this recipe was so much fun to make, and it turned out PERFECT, i'll be looking for more middle eastern dishes to try out.

Easy Chicken Enchiladas
this is now my "go to" recipe! i cannot say enought good things about this.... we had surprise company while i was prepping it, so i added some extra leftover chicken and steak, (measured to about 2 1/2 cups of chix/steak) as well as using the entire 8 oz. of cream cheese and a total of 2 cups of salsa.... i wanted to stay as close to the original recipe as possible, but i had to wing it with the extra folks to feed. i threw in some hot chili peppers with the salsa/cream cheese mix and it had a very nice warm heat, without being really hot. next time i will put more sauce on the bottom of the pan, though i was begged to "not change a thing!" made 7 enchiladas, closely wrapped. i used large flour tortilla shells.
