Wordless Wednesday [with a few words}



Our fields and fields of sunflowers are now in full bloom and oh what a GLORIOUS sight! I can stand on our deck or look out my kitchen window and enjoy the view--because of crop rotation this is not always possible!

I have so many recipes and pictures that I want to share with you but I have been busy trying to get things organized with harvest and school starting. I think I am doing pretty well so I should be back to share with you all. :)

Leave me a comment and say hi....I hope I didn't lose a lot of you with my lack of posting. Don't forget about Farm Photo Friday coming up. Join in on the fun!

Farmchick's Chickaritos!!! :) Come see what it is.

Thanks for coming. :) Life on the farm is busy as usual. With August brings school, canning and harvest. I love this time of year and hate it too! Sounds confusing, I know. I LOVE harvest...both my garden and harvesting of our crops but ever since my kids have started school I also hate this time of year because I hate sending them back to school. I always struggle this time of year with these feelings. So, on to our my recipe.

CHICKARITOS are basically an eggroll with a mexican twist! I love them and I love that they are made the HEALTHY way {baked not fried}!!


Chickaritos
3 cups finely chopped cooked chicken
1-1/2 cups (6 ounces) shredded sharp cheddar cheese or whatever you have!
1 can (4 ounces) chopped green chilies
1/2 cup finely chopped green onions
1/2 cup corn

3/4 cup salsa
1 teaspoon pressed garlic
1/4 teaspoon pepper
1/4 teaspoon ground cumin
1/4 teaspoon paprika
you can also add black beans but I didn't have any
egg roll wrappers
Guacamole
Salsa

Shred or chop chicken.



In a large bowl, combine the chicken, chilies, onions, cheese and seasonings.



Put approx. 2 tablespoons filling in middle and roll it up! If you need directions on how to roll up an eggroll wrapper just refer to the package. :) It's pretty easy.

Bake at 400° until golden brown or browned to your liking.

Serve warm with salsa and guacamole.

Enjoy!

Thanks for stopping by....remember to leave a comment....you know all bloggers love comments!
