The Enchilada pie for the picky eater.

Enchi'NADA's

The Enchiladas for the pickiest of eaters!

I have a hard time finding a meal that will satisfy my daughters appetite in this heat, while staying on budget. However, I managed to find something that she does not get tired of. She is a picky eater, who doesn’t like beef, vegetables or anything that doesn’t involve her help.

This is a quick and easy dinner that you can make by yourself, or with your little one, if you have any. It’s fun, cheap and nutritious!

Tools you need:

  • A deep dish pan
  • Parchment paper
  • Foil

Food you need:

  • Chicken ($10)
  • Shredded cheese ($3)
  • Tomato (optional $1)
  • Coconut oil or vegetable oil ($1 at the dollar tree)
  • Corn tortillas ($3)

Steps:

  1. Start by boiling your chicken on high for 35 minutes (or until fully boiled)
  2. You will know that your chicken is ready to shred when you can peel it easily part using tongs while still in the pot. Continue to shred all of the chicken.
  3. Leave it boil until the water is completely gone then add a desired amount of coconut oil or vegetable oil.
