Spicy Grill Rub

Sorry it has been while, between end of the school year, beginning of summer things, Darwin's work and a trip to Colorado, we've been really busy. Not to mention the eye appointments, broken leg and me being in the hospital for cysts. Oh well. Well since it is getting to be summer time I figured I put on a spice rub that is great on anything from chicken to ribs to steak and shrimp. Also is a spicy BBQ sauce that is great to coat everything with or to put on corn on the cob. Beware though it is spicy! You can adjust it easily enough for your liking though!

Chicken Enchiladas

One of Darwin's favorite is Chicken enchiladas. I love how easily you can adjust them to your preferences. We like ours with a red sauce and floour tortillas, but you could easily switch it to corn and green sauce.

Flour Tortillas
8 chicken breast
2 T cumin
2 T garlic powder
3 T onion powder
1 tsp cayenne pepper*
1 lg can red enchilada sauce
1 large onion diced
2 T garlic
1 can diced green chiles
grated cheddar cheese

toss the chicken in garlic powder, cumin, onion powder, and cayenne. Place on baking sheet and roast till cooked through. Set aside to cool. In a saute pan, cook the diced onion and garlic and green chiles. Dice ore shred the chicken and then add to the onions and chiles. toss to combine. Add a few tablespoons of the enchilada sauce to moisten the chicken. Fill and roll the tortillas and place in dish. Top with the remaining sauce and then top with the shredded cheese. Bake for 20 minutes and serve hot.
