OOTD & Recipe

 Happy hump day! Can you belive the week is halfway over?!? The weather was SO wonderful today and I hope the cold weather is over

I was finally able to pull out some spring dresses out of the attic now that it's not chilly. And what a better way to kick spring off with a Lilly dress :)

(please excuse the fact my head and legs are cut off..I had someone at work take the picture on my phone and she was so confused as to why I needed a picture of my outfit & when I saw the picture was half cut off I was too embarrassed to ask for another hehe)

I added a light summer scarf because it was a tad chilly this morning when I left the house at 6 for the gym, threw on some sandals, and add minimal jewelery..oh how I missed summer.

I haven't posted a recipe in a while and I forgot about this particular one until tonight! I am pretty good in the kitchen, but this recipe is so simple and yummy I had to share, anyone can throw this together

It's a Chicken Enchilada Ring from Pampered Chef

  • 2 cups coarsely chopped cooked chicken
  • ¼ cup chopped pitted ripe olives   (I just used black olives)
  • 1 (4 ounce) cup shredded cheddar cheese , and monterey jack cheese blend
  • 1 (4 ounce) can chopped green chilies , undrained
  • ½ cup mayonnaise (Greek yogurt is a healthy substitution)
  • 1 tablespoon pampered chef pantry southwest seasoning
  • 2 plum tomatoes
  • 1 lime
  • 23; cup finely crushed corn tortilla chips , divided
  • 2 (8 ounce) packages refrigerated crescent dinner rolls
  • 1 cup salsa
  • 1 cup sour cream (fat free of course!)


  1. Preheat oven to 375F.
  2. Chop chicken and olives using Food Chopper; place in mixing bowl.
  3. Add cheese, green chilies, mayonnaise, and seasoning mix.
  4. Seed and chop 1 tomato.
  5. Slice lime in half.
  6. Using Juicer, juice one half of lime to measure 1 teaspoon juice.
  7. Reserve remaining lime for garnish.
  8. Add chopped tomato and lime juice to chicken mixture.
  9. Reserve 2 tablespoons crushed chips; add remaining chips to chicken mixture and mix well.
  10. Sprinkle reserved crushed chips over cutting board.
  11. Unroll crescent dough.
  12. Place dough, sticky-side down, onto crushed chips; press down lightly, so chips adhere to dough.
  13. Separate dough into triangles.
  14. Arrange triangles, chip side down, in a circle on round baking stone (or round pizza baking sheet) with wide ends overlapping in the center and points towards outside.
  15. (There should be a 5-inch diameter opening in center.) Scoop chicken mixture evenly onto the wide ends of each triangle.
  16. Bring points of triangles up over filling and tuck under wide ends of dough at center of ring.
  17. (Filling will not be completely covered.) Bake 20-25 minutes or until golden.
  18. For garnish, cut remaining tomato into 8 wedges.
  19. Cut remaining half of lime into 4 slices; cut in half.
  20. Arrange between openings of ring.
  21. Cut and serve with salsa and sour cream.
I also made homemade guacamole to go with it and it was absolutely to die for!
This is so embarrassing.. I didn't even take a picture of the dish after I baked it because as soon as it came out the oven, I cut into it and started eating away, completely forgetting the fact I was going to blog about it.

So I got one off the internet :)

SO yummy!!!
Have y'all tried any good recipes lately?! I am always looking for something new to bake/cook!
