Friday Finds {Vol. 13} - A Recipe (and a Workout)

If you are like us, you are preparing for the first day of school! To me, it feels like a new year - we need resolutions, new routines, new plans, new goals... I like the idea of new and fresh. So, for this edition of Friday Finds, I want to share what I'm doing to get in the back-to-school zone.


I adapted the recipe from this one HERE, and it was a hit. It made some great leftovers too!

Chicken Enchiladas

1 rotisserie chicken (cut into bite-sized pieces)
1 can of red enchilada sauce
1 can of diced green chiles
1 can of black beans, drained and rinsed
Salt, pepper, and garlic powder

12 flour tortillas
1 C of cheddar cheese

Mix chicken, green chilies, black beans, and spices and cook over medium heat until warm. Add in 1/4 C of the enchilada sauce and mix again.

Place a bit of cheese on a tortilla and top with a spoonful of the chicken mixture. Top with another sprinkle of cheese then roll. Place down in a greased 9x13 casserole dish. Keep going until all tortillas are filled and in the dish. Top with the remaining sauce and cheese.

Bake at 350 degrees for 20 minutes. Serve with salsa and sliced avocado.
These enchiladas lasted us 3 days and were so delish. You could play around with the ingredients and make them your own. I personally like the short cut of the rotisserie chicken. YUM.


Now after you eat your enchiladas (or before if you want to work yourself up to a great meal), complete this awesome ab circuit shared by my trainer, Megan. I added it in this week after some Body Beast Back and Biceps. Go get it, fit friends!

If you need to, complete 15 or 20 of each exercise then work your way to 25.


School starts next week, and I thought I was in good shape. I had my anxiety when he started kindergarten, so I thought I was in the clear for this upcoming year. Truth is, I am really going to miss him. He's so much fun to talk to, and not to mention, his little sister wants him around her at all times. I am thankful for him and how much he's grown. I am going to focus on that pride instead of the pain of him being away from us. I mean, I will only allow myself one ugly cry then I'll get over it, k?

Best wishes for a great school year! I hope you work some NEW into your year and get stronger than ever! Check back to this Friday Finds post for help to get you ready for all the upcoming fun. My Boo Hoo lunch is already on the calendar. 

See where I am linking up HERE and HERE :)
