Chicken Enchilada Casserole

13 oz. can chicken, drained
2 (10 ¾ oz.) cans cream of chicken soup
1 c. sour cream
½ t. ground cumin
15 oz. pkg. flour tortillas
2 c. grated cheddar cheese

Mix chicken, cream of chicken soup, sour cream, and cumin together in a mixing bowl. Stack tortillas and cut into strips. In a greased 9x13 baking dish, layer half the tortilla strips, half of chicken mixture, and half of cheese. Repeat. Bake for 30 minutes at 350ºF. (I usually cover with foil for 25 minutes and then broil on Low for the last 5 minutes).

Mint Chocolate Chip Cookies

3/4 C butter at room temp.
2 3/4 C flour
1 1/4 C sugar
2 eggs
1 tsp. baking soda
1/2 tsp. salt
1 tsp. vanilla extract
green food coloring, 12-15 drops
2 C Andes Creme de Menthe Baking chips

Preheat oven to 375 degrees. Cream butter and sugar together until light and fluffy. Add eggs, scrape down the sides of the bowl and mix again. Add vanilla and mix until light and fluffy again.

Sift together flour, baking soda, and salt. Mix until combined. Add enough green food coloring to get the right color. (The color of the cookie dough should be a little darker than you want the cookie color to be.) Add mint chips.

Drop cookie dough by the tablespoon onto parchment paper on a baking sheet. Bake for 12-14 minutes.
