Mexi Supper Club Menu

A while back I posted my Supper Club menu from when I hosted this September. Here is the Mexican themed one I served last October.

AppetizerHot Corn DipIf you make nothing else on this menu, do yourself a favor and MAKE THIS! The first time I made it I left the toppings off, but when I made it recently I put the toppings on and it was just as tasty.

Red Chicken Enchiladas

When it was my turn to host supper club last October I found a recipe on Pinterest for White Enchiladas. Since Mexican food is all about variety, I decided to tweak the recipe a bit and make Red Enchiladas, too. I have to admit, I liked these better than the original ones.


  • 10 taco size flour tortillas
  • 2 1/2 cups cooked, diced chicken(I like to grill mine with garlic salt and chili powder for extra flavor)
  • 3 cups shredded cheddar cheese
  • 2 10oz cans red enchilada sauce

Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Combine chicken, half the cheese, and one can of enchilada sauce. Spread mixture between the tortillas, roll, and place seam side down in a 9x13 pan. Pour the other can of enchilada sauce over the enchiladas and top with remaining cheese. Bake for 20 minutes.

Recipes I'd Like to Try

Do you ever get distracted looking at the menu of the restaurant you're going to be eating at after work? And maybe start drooling on your desk... Today I was looking at Vintage Pizzeria's Menu and getting excited. Too bad I can't order everything on their menu or eat there every day. Then I realized I could probably create some of these in my own kitchen, so here's a list of dishes I'd like to try. If you have a link to a great recipe please leave it in the comments!

  • Chicken Picatta
  • Pasta Primavera
  • Minestrone Soup
  • Chocolate Truffles

I'm sure this list will grow over time, so check back! I'll also post links to any great recipes I find for these.

Butter Parmesan Cabbage

I love cabbage. Probably more than most people. Tonight I was wondering what I could stuff my face with as an alternative to Halloween candy. And that is how Butter Parmesan Cabbage came to be. I read a post earlier today on a paleo blog and they suggested subbing cabbage for pasta. And as much as I love butter noodles sprinkled with Parmesan cheese I thought I'd give it a try with cabbage. And let me tell you, it was delicious.


  • 4 cups of cabbage sliced into strips (mine were about 1/2 inch x 3 inches)
  • 1/4 Tbsp. butter
  • Garlic salt to taste
  • 2 Tbsp. grated Parmesan cheese

Melt butter in frying pan. Add sliced cabbage and cook over medium heat about 5 minutes, tossing every minute or so. Sprinkle with garlic salt. Cook about 3 more minutes, tossing every minute or so until cabbage is very tender. Remove from heat and toss in the Parmesan cheese.
