1 (14-ounce) can diced tomatoes with chiles, drained
2 scallions, light green and white parts only, finely chopped
1 jalapeno, seeded, deveined, and finely chopped
1/2 cup finely chopped cilantro leaves
1 lime, juiced
1 rotisserie chicken, meat removed and shredded (skin and bones discarded)
2 cups grated Cheddar
1 cup sour cream
1/2 small red onion, finely chopped
Salt and freshly ground black pepper
6 (8-inch) flour tortillas
To prepare the salsa: Combine the tomatoes, scallions, jalapeno, cilantro, and lime juice in a mixing bowl. Add a healthy pinch of salt and set aside at room temperature until ready to cook the enchiladas.
Preheat your oven to 350 degrees F. Spray a 9 by 13-inch baking dish with nonstick cooking spray.
To prepare the enchiladas: Place the shredded chicken in a large bowl. Add half of the grated cheese, sour cream, and onion; season with salt and pepper. Mix well to combine.
Place the tortillas on your work surface. Spoon about 1 cup of the chicken mixture across the center of each tortilla. Roll them up to close and place, seam side down, in the prepared baking dish. Pour the salsa over the tortillas. Cover with aluminum foil and bake until heated through, about 40 minutes.
Remove the foil and sprinkle the enchiladas with the remaining 1 cup of grated cheese. Return the baking dish to the oven until the cheese is melted and edges of the tortillas are just beginning to get crisp, 5 to 8 minutes. Serve hot.

1/2 cup chopped onion
1/2 cup chopped bell pepper
1/2 cup chopped celery
2 tablespoons minced parsley
1 10-ounce can tomatoes with green chilies

Put vegetable oil and alligator meat in heavy 4 quart cooking pot. Add chopped vegetables, parsley and tomatoes. Season with salt and pepper. Cover pot and cook over medium heat for one hour.

Preparation time: 1 hour, 15 minutes.
1/4 cup butter OR margarine
1/4 cup all-purpose flour
3 cups chicken broth
1 cup milk
8 oz. Velveeta process cheese food – cubed
10 oz. can Ro*Tel® tomatoes and chilies
2 cups cooked, shredded chicken
1 tsp. cumin
1 tsp. chili powder
salt and pepper – to taste
flour tortillas – as needed, about 4 – 6
shredded Colby Jack cheese OR Mexican blend cheese – as needed
In a pot, melt butter over medium heat. Stir in flour and cook, stirring often, for 3 minutes.
Slowly whisk in small amounts of chicken broth at a time, then whisk in milk.
Reduce heat to low and stir in Velveeta cubes; stir until melted.
Stir in Ro*Tel, chicken, and spices.
Once soup is heated through, it is ready to serve at this point. However, if you wish to make tortilla strips, it can sit over low heat while they are made. Stir the soup occasionally.
For tortilla strips, cut tortillas into strips and deep-fry in 350 degree vegetable or peanut oil until golden, then drain on cooling racks.
Spoon a ladleful of soup into a bowl, add a handful of shredded cheese, then spoon another ladleful of soup over cheese. Sprinkle tortilla strips over top. Repeat for remaining servings.
