I can’t believe I didn’t realize that last Friday was really the 1st Friday of the month. I got so excited to share our 4th of July picnic with y’all that I just totally spaced this.
This month’s KITK is from my sister. She is an awesome cook and is teaching her children well. Isaac, who recently turned 7, actually makes these enchiladas all by himself. I wish my daughter was at this stage, but she has a few more lessons in the kitchen before she can do this all by herself.

Easy Cheese Enchiladas
10 corn tortillas
1 lb ground turkey, beef, or left over chicken
1 large can (19 oz) enchilada sauce (or 2 small)
green chiles (opt)
Brown the turkey with a handful of dehydrated onion and green chilies. Mix in half of the enchilada sauce. Cut 3 torillas in half and line flat edges on the sides of a casserole. Fill in the center with 2 more tortillas and spread the meat mixture on top. Add as much shredded cheese as you’d like. Add the remaining tortillas in the same configuration with 3 cut in half lining the sides and 2 filling in the center. Spread the remaining sauce on top covering the toritalls completely and top with a little extra cheese. Bake for about 30 minutes at 350 or until cheese in completely melted.
Teachable Moments: oven/stove safety, hygiene, knife skills, creativity

Fostering independence and cooking skills will make him a very beloved spouse someday. <3 Looks like he's having so much fun too!
They look like they’re having so much fun! My son is only 19 months, so we’ve got a while before he’ll really be cooking with me, but I’ll stock up on ideas! Your newest follower from the Celebrating Family Blog hop! Http://www.disneybabiesblog.com
looks so easy! my son would love this!
Found you on a Monday Blog hop! I can’t find your GFC so I am subscribing via email. I checked out your blog & I love it! I would love it if you came and checked out my blog and followed back via gfc as well. Have a great week!

Can these little chefs be any cuter or more talented?
Oh boy, oh boy! I love mexican food. 🙂 What a cutie he is too. I’ll have to try this with my kiddos.
Beautiful babies you have 🙂 Great recipe too, I love enchiladas!! My boys are men now but really enjoyed helping in the kitchen. It was very important they knew how to cook. I wanted them to be self sufficient young men who could care for themselves. They did laundry and ironed too!

Great recipe! It looks so yummy! Thanks for sharing:)
Hope to see you on my blog:)
Being able to cook is an important skill for boys as well as girls. Good job, Isaac. Not all children learn on the same timetable. And let’s face it, not everybody cooks the same. K will learn to cook too, in her own time.
Wow! That’s really impressive that he does that by himself.
