Something Borrowed

DishItGIrl via Six Sisters Chicken Avocado Enchilada
Since I started managing work, school, and a husband I became friendly with a crock pot. Which in turn made me friendly with the Six Sisters Stuff web site. My mom had always told me my house could set on fire if I left the crock pot on. But out of desperation caused by finishing papers at 3am and going from work to class I needed to take that chance. Plus lots of people had been telling me what I knew deep down inside. My mom was overacting and many people think the crock pot is a life saver. (I love you Mom!)

That aside, this isn’t a crock pot recipe haha! But rather a really good make ahead meal I found through searching the Six Sisters Site for crock pot recipes. Introducing chicken avocado enchiladas. The recipe I followed to a “T” and it is perfect! I had to spread the word of course. It is not that hard to execute and I can see it saving me on many weeknights to come. Needless to say, Brian ate three plates full. I may or may not have just eaten the leftovers before writing this!
