Creamy Chicken and Green Chile Casserole

Creamy Chicken and Green Chile Casserole inspired by an old family favorite enchilada recipe but made with whole food ingredients | www.vibrantlifearmywife.com #paleo #glutenfreeWhen I was a kid, my mom used to make these chicken enchiladas with a creamy green chile sauce. They were super delectable. In college, I made them for my boyfriend (now husband) and he went crazy for them. He could eat almost an entire pan of them by himself. He can’t eat that much anymore, but back in high school and college he was quite the garbage disposal. Continue reading

My husband and I are not the most sociable of people. Sure, we have friends and very much enjoy hanging out with them. But we also very much enjoy being home. We are that totally lame home body type of couple.  But hey, it works for us so don’t judge 🙂 So when it comes to Christmas time, we aren’t exactly crazy busy going to different holiday parties, like I hear most people are this time of year.

Wow that sounds way lamer when I actually write it out than I did in my head. Maybe next year we will work on that whole sociable thing… Continue reading

I’ve got 8% battery on my laptop, I can’t find an outlet that actually works to charge it, and my plane starts boarding in about 20 minutes so I’m going to keep this short and sweet. I know, that’s so not like me 😉  Continue reading

I love casseroles. Make a big batch of something, throw it in the oven, and then have leftovers for days… that’s the dream. Especially for us busy people. Who has time to cook something totally new for breakfast, lunch, and dinner 7 days a week? And even if you did have time, who would want to do that? Not this girl. As much as I love to cook, I don’t want to spend all day cooking. And think of all the dirty dishes that would create! That’s really how you’d be spending your whole day, not cooking but doing dishes. Continue reading
