Here's the place to share your meal ideas for the evening, post where you bought the ingredients frugally and even share a recipe if you would like.

What's on your menu tonight?
Here's our meal plan for the first week back at school!
Green chili chicken and cheese enchiladas
The enchiladas are leftover from Sunday night and they were delicious! I used the Kraft green chili Recipe Makers sauce, shredded chicken breast, sautéed red pepper, mushrooms and onion and 4-cheese Mexican cheese. The kids and hubby both loved it!
FYI – I used the filling sauce from the Kraft mix for the inside of the enchiladas as directed, but I only used the Green chili sauce on the bottom of the pan. I did not cover the top of the filled enchiladas with it, as directed. It is a little strong and I didn’t think the kids would love that much of it. For the top of the enchiladas, I used a mix of light sour cream and Wholly Salsa and mixed them together. I spread a thin layer over the top and then covered that with more cheese. They thought that was the right amount of green sauce.
Sauteed squash and zucchini with a touch of parmesan
