Chicken Avocado Enchiladas {What Cookin’ Wednesday}

I am in the mood for St. Patricks day! With my families heritage originating in Ireland, my family has always gotten together to celebrate St. Patty’s day in a big way. This weekend we will be feasting on the over-abundance of Irish themed foods and pulling out the traditional paper hymnals to sing together in a chorus of Irish songs. {Yes, we really do have song books} It kinda weirded me out at first, but now I am used to hearing my relatives belt out “Danny Boy” and “When Irish Eyes are Smiling” in harmony at the top of their lungs.
Since St. Patty’s day is on my mind, I decided to theme our dinners this week around green colored foods. It brought a little bit of fun to dinner time and broke up the monotony of our daily routine. Last night we tried a recipe that I found another great blog for chicken avocado enchiladas. Mmmm.. . they were amazing! I did however have to change the recipe out just a little to make it more kid friendly. The original recipe called for jalapeno peppers and onions that I know my kids wouldn’t eat. It was hard enough to get them to try the green enchiladas because of their color, but once they took a first bite they cleaned their plates.
You can find the complete recipe over on the blog Gimmie Some Oven.
Now, off to prepare a “Pot of Gold” for the kids to find this coming Sunday. I will be posting details on that later!
