Hope everyone has had a wonderful weekend. Sundays are always big cooking days at our house and I’m excited to share one of our favorite recipes. As an on-again off-again Weight Watchers devotee, I have quite the cache of Weight Watchers recipes in rotation. If you’ve ever followed the program, you were probably as surprised as I was that the food actually tastes GOOD. There have been some misses in the past, but by and large, we’ve found some great recipes that we use every week. Currently in my favorites rotation? The Salsa Verde Chicken Enchiladas. They are so delicious, filling and so flavorful. Enjoy!
