Chicken Enchiladas

1 can cream of chicken soup
1/2 cup sour cream
1 cup Pace picante sauce (I used mild)
2 tsp chili powder
2 cups of chopped cooked chicken
1/2 cup shredded monterey jack cheese ( I always add extra)
6 flour tortillas, warmed

Stir soup, sour cream, picante sauce and chili powder together. Take 1 cup of the mixture and mix with the chicken and cheese in a large bowl. Divide chicken mixture among the tortillas. Roll up and place in a shallow baking dish. Pour the remaining picante sauce mixture over the filled tortillas, and garnish with cheese. Cover the baking dish. Bake at 350 for 40 minutes.

I like it best with a chopped tomato and chopped green onion on the top- I didn't know how to include that for you! Also good with a little extra sour cream on the side.

Buttermilk Scones

The scones are supposed to bake at 400 degrees for about 15 to 20 minutes. I would probably thaw them first on a cookie sheet. Also, when I have made them they have been larger, so maybe they would be done a bit earlier. I would check them around 10 minutes. They are supposed to be golden and light brown around the edges.

Marinara Meatball Hoagies

Dump meatballs and sauce into crockpot on low for 8 hours, or medium to high for 4-6 hours. You can also put them into a large saucepan on the stove if they are unthawed and you want to complete the meal quickly. You want them nice and hot, but they are already cooked, so you just don't want them to start falling apart by getting too dry. Also, you may want to be a little gentle when you stir/turn them. Make sure hoagies are unthawed and at room temp.

There are home made meatballs, which are the larger meatballs. There are also Simek's pre-made meatballs that are smaller in size. Figured kids might prefer the smaller size.

Cut buns like subway USED to, like a boat, with the middle cut out. Put the meatballs into the hole and put two slices of the provolone cheese across the top. I put them in the oven under the broiler at 300 for just a few minutes to melt the cheese on top.
