2 Cups of Shredded Chicken
10 Tortilla shells
1 can cream of chicken soup
1 cup Greek yogurt (You can use sour cream but I honestly couldn't tell the difference)
1 can chopped green chili's
1-2 cups of Mexican cheese
1 can red enchilada sauce
1 small can of sliced olives (optional)
So do you ever buy those Rotisserie chickens at Sam's club? They are such a deal and we can usually get two meals out of them! We'll usually eat the meat with veggies the first night, then I'll make soup or enchiladas the next, and its way cheaper than buying frozen chicken breast. I usually take the bones and make my own chicken stock with it. I usually take whatever is in the bottom of my fridge and throw it in....I was making chicken noodle soup so after I cut the celery I threw the ends in, and the extra carrots, I also had half a onion in there too.
Veggie scraps: celery, carrots, onions etc. Whatever you have throw it in!
Water to cover the veggies and bones.
Bring to a boil then let it simmer for three hours.

With it being so CHILLY outside...I like to bake....it heats up my kitchen, and I love Comfort food this time of year! This is one of our favorite dinners!
Cheesy Potato Kielbasa Bake
3-4 Cups of Potatoes (Cut into cubes and boil till soft...not too soft)
1 package of Polska Kielbasa (or you could use hot dogs)
4 Tbsp. Butter
4 Tbsp. Flour
2 Cups of Milk
1/2 tsp. Salt
1/2 tsp. Pepper
1/2 pound Velveeta cheese, diced into cubes
1/2 tsp. Paprika
1/2 Cup Cheddar Cheese Shredded
Cut Kielbasa into thin slices. Cook in a frying pan with some olive oil until both sides are brown.
Meanwhile, put cooked & diced potatoes in 2 quart casserole. Add sausage and stir it up.
Mix all remaining ingredients (except for cheddar cheese & the paprika) in a saucepan over medium heat until warm, melted and smooth. (Use a whisk and stir constantly.).
Pour cheese sauce over potatoes and meat. Sprinkle shredded cheddar cheese on top, and then sprinkle paprika evenly over the top.
Bake in preheated 350°F oven for 35-45 minutes (watch, until golden brown on top).
