Jenny Craig Volumizing: Chicken Fajita Enchiladas

After my vacation, I knew I was going to need something more than the regular JC food.  All the treats in the desert had me spoiled by bold flavors and yummy food.

I decided I would try to the JC Chicken Fajitas that I NEVER eat.  I had two packages in my freezer, and decided it was time.  

As I was cooking the fajitas in a saute pan, I decided to mix it up a little!  If you’re looking for a different way to eat the fajitas, TRY THIS! I grabbed the following to add to my fajitas:

I mixed the chicken /veggie mixture with a little bit of Bold Taco and some Adobo seasoning.  I also used a tiny bit of the JC flavor mix.  I’m not a huge fan of JC’s fajita seasoning, because I like a kick.  Thank goodness for Penzey’s!

I put half of the chicken/veggie mixture on each tortilla topped with a bit of the FF Cheddar.

Next, I placed the “enchiladas” rolled up in a pie pan sprayed with Pam.  I poured some of the delicious 505 green chile on top and then sprinkled with a little more of the FF cheddar.

I baked the enchiladas at 350 for about 15 minutes.  Soooooooo tasty!

I am definitely going to make this again!  I also read on the JC Forums that they can be made into quesadillas using my favorite Laughing Cow cheese!!!  That may be the next experiment!

Happy Saturday, all!

Goodbye, Chips and Salsa…

I should be blogging tonight about my fabulous vacation reward in the desert or about the delicious enchiladas I made the other night.

HOWEVER, I feel the need to make another confession….

I seriously can’t be trusted when I’m sitting in front of a basket of chips and salsa.  Tragically, I decided to order a side of chips and salsa tonight with my salad that ended up to be enormous. 

I’ve described chips and salsa/queso/guac before as “crack” and mexican restaurants in general as a “crackhouse.”   Like an addict, I told myself that I wouldn’t eat it all, and I told myself that I just wanted a few bites.  BUT, it tasted so delicious, and I ate way too many chips.  Now I just feel horrible.

My question:  Do I have to just eliminate Mexican food from my diet completely??  When will I be able to be able to sit down at a Mexican restaurant and not be tempted to devour the whole basket of chips and salsa??

For now, I’ve eaten my last chips and salsa for a long time.  Good news is the most recent batch of chips and salsa was delicious and not an icky stale chip variety.  i also get to go to the gym in the morning now, and not for one of those lackluster, halfass workouts.

Goodbye, chips and salsa…. hello, elliptical machine.  Sigh…

My blog has been visited over ONE THOUSAND times as of today!!??!  Wow… kinda makes you wonder who’s looking and at the same time, it makes me feel very Julie Powell from Julie and Julia.  In other words, very proud and very honored that people would be interested in what I have to say!

Thanks for helping me to stay accountable and for being a part of my journey.  We’re only halfway there, folks!  Can’t wait to spend the next 45 pounds with everyone.

Holy Blog Makeover + The Loss of an X

Tonight, I decided that my blog was just TOO blah…. and it needed a facelift!  Can you believe how fabulous it looks now??  Gone are the rotating cakes (ala David Letterman’s Rotating Pies) and in with the bright springy look!  LOVE IT!  I hope you do too!!!

I also had a HUGE win yesterday… I’ve lost the X in XL!  Ok, this is a BIG deal.  Who in their right mind wants to be listed as EXTRA LARGE.  So large that they needed to emphasize it with an “X” or (goodness) “XX”. 

Keep in mind, I’ve been both… so I can DEFINITELY comment on how much I hated each one of those Xs.  You know, the embarrassing part when someone sees your coat size and it says “XXL.”  EMBARRASSING!
I am soooooo happy to be out of the XL phase of my life PERMANENTLY! 
Bought this dress to wear on my trip to the desert this weekend.  It was just an “L”… and I bought it at Forever 21?  Really?  Isn’t that a juniors store?? 
Looking forward to being medium.  And hoping to get there by the end of the year!
What do you think of the new NTTC blog look?
