Hatch Green Chile Chicken Enchiladas

4 large chicken breast halves, grilled and shredded
1 cup Crema Agria (Mexican sour cream)
6-8  hatch chiles, roasted, peeled, and diced
2 cups of Mexican blend shredded cheese
16-20 soft corn tortillas
16 oz. can green chile enchiladas sauce

Slice up the cream cheese and melt it in a large saute pan. Add the chicken, 1 cup of Mexican cheese, and chiles and combine well. Let cool enough to handle with hands.

Steam corn tortillas a couple at a time (a broiler pan with water in the botton over the burners works well) and roll with filling mixture. Pack the enchiladas in a lightly greased 9 x 13 pan. Cover enchiladas with green chile enchiladas sauce. Top sauce with remaining Mexican cheese. Bake at 400 F. for 30 minutes or until cheese because lightly browned.

Apple Cinnamon Quiche

(featured on Inn Cuisine, recipe courtesy The Grove, the Inn on Harlee, Marion, South Carolina)

1 pie crust, unbaked
3 medium apples, (Honey-Crisp variety), peeled and sliced thinly
2 tablespoons butter
2 tablespoons sugar
1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
1 cup shredded Cheddar cheese
3 large eggs
1 & 1/2 cups heavy whipping cream

Preheat oven to 325 degrees F. Press pie crust into a 9″ pie plate and set aside. Sauté apples in butter, sugar and cinnamon until the apples are tender, about 5-8 minutes. Meanwhile, whisk eggs and heavy whipping cream together until well blended. Place apples in the bottom of crust and cover evenly with shredded cheese. Gently pour egg and cream mixture over the apples and cheese. Bake quiche in the middle of a preheated 325 degree F oven for 35-40 minutes (depending on the accuracy of your oven), or until set (quiche no longer jiggles when shaken). Remove from oven, allow to cool to about room temperature, then slice before serving. May be served at room temperature or chilled.

Yield: Serves 6

Yellow Summer Squash Parmesean

3 yellow summer squash
2 tbsps. butter
2 garlic cloves, minced
1 - 2 tbsps. fresh basil, chopped
Salt and pepper
1/2 cup fresh Parmesan, grated

Yellow summer squash fresh from the market
Basil leaves fresh from my garden

Melt butter in pan. Slice the squash into thick slices

Add to melted butter in pan and brown on both sides. About 7-10 minutes each side.

This is my favorite part. Add the minced garlic and saute for about 2 minutes. I just love, love, love the aroma of fresh garlic sauteing away in the butter.

Remove from heat, sprinkling on the chopped basil and combine. Add salt and pepper to taste.

Grate parmesan cheese into hot squash and stir.

Add more grated parmesan cheese to top and that's it! Enjoy!
