January Harlequin Series: Reunion at Cardwell Ranch

I have another set of books for the next three days to tell you about. The first one is Reunion at Cardwell Ranch



Here is some interesting topics from the author, B.J. Daniels:

Bon Appetit and a Book:


One of my favorite recipe is some warm comfort food this time of year. This enchilada casserole does the trick alongside a book like REUNION AT CARDWELL RANCH that hopefully keeps you turning the pages so fast, you won’t eat too much.  



ENCHILADA CASSEROLE:
2 cups chicken, turkey (or browned burger would work great too) (I used diced turkey)
3 cups grated cheese (I used both cheddar and jack)
1 4-5 oz green chiles (I used 4 fresh ones from the garden after taking the peel off under the broiler)
1 pkg corn tortillas (12)
1 16 oz can refried beans
1 19oz can of enchilada sauce
1/4 cup chopped green onions


Heat oven to 350 degrees. Bake 35-45 minutes in a 13x9 inch dish


Mix meat with 1 1/2 cups of grated cheese and all of the chiles.
Put a few spoonfuls of sauce in bottom of baking dish. Layer 4 tortillas on top of the sauce. (You can cut them to make them fit. I overlapped them to fit in the bottom)
Spread beans over tortillas (I didn't, but I think they would spread easier if heated)
Add half of the meat mixture and half of the remaining enchilada sauce
Put four tortillas on top.
Spread on remaining beans and meat mixture.
Put remaining tortillas on top
Add rest of enchilada sauce
Sprinkle on 1 1/2 cups of cheese.


Cover with foil. Bake. Garnish with green onions and serve.

Writer’s Space:

I write in the most wonderful 100-year-old building. It used to be the original telephone company. Since it was built, huge glass-block windows have been added to give me lots of light. I love working here.




Stay tuned tomorrow for another book in the series.
