This Recipe Deserves An Oscar

The Academy Awards have a special place in my heart. Why? Because Roger and I watched it on our second date. After our first date, I asked him if he wanted to come over and watch them with me. How forward of me, I know! I'm glad he accepted.

This was when the Oscars were televised at the end of March. I planned to serve chicken enchiladas, a special recipe that a friend suggested and assured me that Roger would instantly fall in love with me if I made it. I guess it worked. We've been together ever since!

So each year it's become a tradition. I make the chicken enchiladas and we watch the red carpet arrivals and then the Oscar ceremony. This year was no exception. Here's the recipe:

Dice a pound or so of chicken breast, sprinkle with chili powder, celery salt and cilantro and fry in a little olive oil. Add ½ jar of medium salsa. Then add strips of green pepper, sliced green onion and diced fresh tomato. Simmer. That's it! Fill flour or corn tortillas with the mixture and top with cheese and sour cream. Serve with Spanish rice and re-fried beans if desired. Enjoy!
