Chicken Enchiladas

Now that I'm current with my kids' mini-albums, I've decided to tackle another big project: getting my recipe cards worked on. I've been doing a 6x6 format, and that was working okay. I can place them in little albums, and it's worked out pretty well. But I like to pull my recipes out and stick them on the fridge while I'm cooking. I just like to see the recipe right there. But I don't like taking the page protector out. I just want the one recipe I'm working on right there. When my parents were here, my dad bought me a laminator
(thanks, Dad!). He said he knew I'd find a use for it! And then it hit me, that I could laminate my recipes, and pull each individual one out when I'm cooking them, stick them on the fridge, and not worry about milk splashing on them, or buttery fingers touching them. I am planning on doing them in a 5x7 format now, but still doing the 6x6 ones, too. That way I can still stash them in the 6x6 album if I feel like it. So, today I'm sharing my Chicken Enchilada recipe. Yes, I've shared this recipe before, from a recipe swap I was in. But I had a friend request it, and so I made a new recipe card I could share with her. Also, I'm posting both the sizes, because I don't know if anyone ever actually prints these out, or not. I know I've saved lot of recipes I found on other blogs, but I don't usually reprint them. But if someone wants to, then they could have their choice of sizes to use!

What a great dad for giving you a laminator. That's a terrific idea for you recipe cards. Messy hands and spills is one of the reasons I don't print out recipes either (that and I'm too cheap to use the expensive printer ink). Fun colors and stars on these.

I too love these stars, and the recipe for that matter. What a great idea to laminate them!

I loved the layout of your recipe card. I am a vegetarian, so I am sure i can substitute beans instead of chicken in this recipe.

I like the blue and the green...and what a great idea to laminate your recipe cards. I totally know what you mean about getting them all gunked up while cooking...I mean, not that I cook, but I know what you mean - LOL I think they'd look cool all laminated and in some sort of pocket protected book or something. That's some serious organization!
