Easy Chicken Enchilada Casserole

This Easy Chicken Enchilada Casserole recipe originated from one on the back of a Kraft shredded cheese package. I modified the recipe to better fit my preferences, and to allow for more variances to fit your preferences.

What is a Recipe?

A recipe is simply a set of instructions for how to make a particular meal. Although many people believe that a recipe needs to be followed to a “T”… I believe that a recipe should be considered more of a guideline containing suggestions. You can choose whether to follow the instructions exactly, change it a little bit here and there, or make significant changes, all based on your personal preferences. That’s one nice thing about having a Freedom of Choice… If you don’t have these exact ingredients on hand, that’s okay. Just substitute what’s missing for something that you do have on hand. Use your best judgement about whether you think that the substitute will work well or not, and if it doesn’t taste good, that’s okay, try something different next time.

If you like this recipe and want more great ideas, stay tuned. I will be posting more from my collection over time. Here is a link to some other great recipes from Kraft.

Why Is The Temple Sharing Recipes?

Although The Temple of the Holy Beard was established as a place to share our deeply held religious beliefs, there is more in life than just beliefs. …A person needs to eat too! We all have recipes that we enjoy. Some get used on a regular basis while others may be just for special occasions. Regardless of the frequency, lets put these recipes out there for each other to enjoy. So long as the ingredients don’t violate any of the Holy Beard’s sacred teachings, let’s post them for all to enjoy.
