2 dinners

My sister Jana has done all 3 of our challenges and if you know her you know she is pretty much amazing...Im a lucky gal to call her my sister! She sent us a couple yummy recipes that I wanted to post, but I also wanted to post this one that she sent our way the last challenge!



During last challenge one of our participants Liz Layton made these for her when she had her baby! They are 100% challenge friendly and seriously so so delicious!! Give 'em a try


(not actual picture)




Honey Lime Enchiladas1.5 lbs. chicken or pork, cooked and shredded
⅓ cup honey
¼ cup lime juice (about 2 limes)
1 Tbsp. chili powder
½ teaspoon garlic powder
1 4 oz. can diced green chiles
2 10 oz. cans green enchilada sauce
Equal parts mozzarella & cheddar cheese, grated (monterey jack works fine)
8-10 whole wheat tortillas
After chicken/pork is cooked and shredded, combine with green chiles, honey, lime juice, chili & garlic powder. Let "marinate" in the fridge for at least 30 minutes. Grease a 9x13 pan and pour a little bit of the enchilada sauce to coat the bottom of the pan. Fill your tortillas with chicken mixture and a little cheese. Roll up and place seam side down in the pan. Repeat. Pour remaining enchilada sauce over the top and sprinkle more cheese on top. Bake uncovered at 350 degrees for 30 minutes and then turn on the broiler for a couple minutes so it gets nice and brown. Serve with sour cream, diced tomatoes, shredded lettuce and salsa, if desired.






Okay this last one is one of my personal favorites too. When I had my 3rd baby my incredible mom made this for us one night and I fell in love. YUM!






(this is not an actual picture of this recipe-you will want to use A LOT more herbs than pictured. And NO WHITE RICE, of course)


Herbed Mustard Salmon


olive oil


salmon


salt & pepper


dijon mustard
diced garlic
fresh herbs (I usually use cilantro, parsley, and basil because they are the most readily available)



Coat pan with olive oil than add fish. Salt & Pepper, then spread mustard generously. Top with diced garlic and A LOT of fresh herbs. Bake at 300 degrees for 30 min or until fish is flaky.



There you have it!

  1. Happy to share! To make sure all the recipes get due credit, I should mention that I adapted the granola to nake it challenge friendly from my friend Nichole bruce's recipe. She made it for a girls breakfast we had and I couldn't stop thinking about it for days!
