green chile chicken and dumplings

Howdy friends!

It’s good to be back, I missed cooking for the past few weeks! I love that it is *finally*cold here in Texas, because that means sweater weather!!! Winter is my favorite time of the year and that means scarves, jackets, boots, and hot drinks (I might be a little basic). The colder weather means snuggle time and lots and lots of blankets!! So I’m pretty excited, if you couldn’t tell.

This is the time of year that I really enjoy making soups and stews, because something about it just makes it so much cozier. That’s why this week I made some green chile chicken and tortilla dumplings (it sounds more intimidating that it really is). I will say, this dish has a lot of items that I know HEB sells, so if you don’t have one in your area it you can still find substitutes!

What you’ll need:

  • 1 jar of Cookwell & Company’s Green Chile stew (it’s near the cooking connection or in the soup aisle)
  • 2 cups of chicken broth
  • 1 to 2 lbs of cooked chicken
  • Fajita seasoning
  • 10-12 flour tortillas
  • 1/2 cup sour cream (I used Greek yogurt as a substitute)
  • 1/2 cup shredded Monterey Jack cheese
  • 1 cup milk
  • Small package of frozen corn

What to do:

  • First, season the chicken with fajita seasoning and put into the oven at 350 degrees for 20 minutes.
  • When the chicken is done, cut it or shred it into smaller pieces.
  • Grab a pot and start adding!
  • Add the jar of stew, broth, sour cream, milk, cheese, and corn. The tortillas can be torn or cut up into small pieces and put into the pot.
  • Mix well over medium-high heat and add the chicken. Keep the heat on and stir until everything is melted and heated through.
  • Once it’s cooled a bit, it’s ready to eat!

I didn’t know what to expect from this recipe, but I was very pleasantly surprised. Both my boyfriend and I enjoyed it while we watched Netflix – the perfect addition to this chilly evening.

This is a little more on the expensive side, but I would expect to spend about $20 for the whole meal. However, this recipe makes so much food, you’ll definitely get your money’s worth out of it!

HEB is a saving grace most of the time, as this recipe came from my local cooking connection. And I am oh so thankful for it!

Okay friends, hope you enjoy! Until next time!
