London Broil With Southwestern Marinade

1 London broil, about 2-4 lbs.
1/2 cup Italian dressing
1/4 cup lime juice
1 Tbsp. honey
1 1/2 tsp. cumin

Place meat in a shallow dish (we used a crockpot). Make marinade by mixing dressing, lime juice, honey, and cumin. Pour over meat, turning to coat well. Cover and refrigerate, turning occasionally, at least 8-10 hours.

NOTES: Typically London broil is a good meat for broiling (hence the name), but we cooked it in the crockpot for about 4 hours on high. Slow cooking the meat makes it more tender. The recipe for this marinade was on the London Broil package along with a couple of others. There are plenty of other marinade recipes to be found online if southwestern doesn't sound good.

Zippy Chicken Enchiladas

1 1/2 cups chicken, cooked and cubed
1 can cream of chicken soup
1/2 cup sour cream
1 can green chilies, small can
2 cups cheddar cheese, shredded
6 Tortillas

Mix the soup, sour cream and green chilies in a bowl. Spoon filling onto edge of each tortilla then top with chicken and sprinkle with cheese. Fold into enchiladas and place in a coated 9x13 pan. Spoon any extra ingredients on top of enchiladas and bake at 350 degrees for about 30 minutes. Make 6 enchiladas.

Notes: We found this recipe here, on a website called Simplify Supper. Looks like a pretty neat site. B cooked the enchiladas for 20 minutes uncovered, and then for 20 more minutes covered with aluminum foil. The bottom of the enchiladas were a little crispy, but B thinks that would be solved by putting some extra sauce on the bottom of the pan.
