Check out Improv Festival Oklahoma this weekend! It's gonna be awesome! Acts from far and wide will be in attendance, working hard for the funny.

I made enchiladas last night with Zachary. They were so good! Here's how:

1 large chicken breast, cooked and shredded
5 biggish mushrooms, sliced
1/2 yellow onion, diced
1 jalapeno, diced
4 oz cream cheese
1/4 cup salsa/picante sauce/pico de gallo
salt, pepper, cumin, cayenne, garlic
8 whole wheat tortillas
green enchilada sauce
about a cup of shredded cheese

I put the frozen chicken breast in a saucepan of water, and let it simmer on the stove for a quite a while when laundry was being done. When we came back from laundry, I took the pan off the heat(and later, Zach reduced the chicken to a pile of tiny shredded goodness)and replaced it with a frying pan with 2 tablespoons or so of olive oil. The onions and jalapeno, along with the dry spices, went into the pan, followed by the mushrooms as soon as the onions were verging on translucency. We let it all cook down until everything was nice and soft, then added the chicken and cream cheese. We let the cream cheese get nice and melted, then added the red stuff of our choosing (salsa in this case).We prepped our casserole dish with a splash of enchilada sauce, then stuffed our tortillas and laid them in the pan(seams down), then covered with the rest of the sauce and our glorious cheese. They baked at 350 for about 20 minutes. NOM NOM.They will also be my lunch today. mmm. :D
