Now that I'm back in Florida I have quite a few places to grocery shop. Gregory's yard needs lots of work and when I'm in his area Hitchcock's usually has great sales.

Picked up chicken thighs for 99 cents a pound. I adapted the recipe from Pinch Of Yum. It called for chicken breast but I  subbed thighs, which I used six.

Lindsey's recipe ( Pinch Of Yum) called for the chicken to be shredded. The old crockpot came out and I added 6 thighs, some white wine I had leftover and sprinkled with Slap Ya Mama. My crockpot runs hot and the thighs we done in about 4 hours, cooked on low.


1/3 cup fat free milk 
1/4 cup egg substitute ( used 1 egg )
1 1/2 tablespoon taco seasoning-divided ( used 3/4 teaspoon slap ya mama)
1/4 teaspoon red pepper flakes ( didn't use)
1 (14 3/4 oz) can of cream-style corn
1 (8.5 oz) box corn muffin mix ( used Jiffy)
1 (4 oz) can drained chopped green chilies
1 (10 oz) can red enchilada sauce
2 cups shredded chicken breast ( used 6 thighs)
3/4 cup white cheese ( used Mexican blend)
Cilantro and crumbled cotija cheese for topping ( didn't use)


Preheat oven to 400 degrees

Combine the milk through the green chilies and add 1/2 tablespoon of the taco seasoning in a large bowl, stirring until moist. I added all of the Slap Ya Mama at this point. Pour into a pie plate which was coated with cooking spray.

Bake in the 400 degree oven for 20-30 minutes. 

When the cornbread is done- it will be just barely set and golden brown. Pierce the surface of the cornbread with a fork.  

Pour the enchilada sauce over the cornbread crust.

Lindsey added 1 tablespoon of taco seasoning to the shredded chicken breast at this point. I cooked the thighs with the Slap Ya Mama so they were ready to add.

Top the crust with the enchilada sauce, shredded chicken and cheese.

Place the pie back in the 400 degree oven for about 15 minutes or until cheese has melted.

Remove from oven and let it sit 5 minutes.


  1. That looks delicious and sounds very tasty. I love food with a little kick to it.

  2. Oh boy Linda-this one is calling my name. As you already know, we LOVE Mexican food so I know we'd enjoy this. I like your idea of cooking the chicken in the crock pot too. I usually don't have Jiffy cornbread mix in the house but happened to pick it up the other day-must be a sign.......I need to make this. :)

    Thanks to you for your great review and oh my GOODNESS that photo-I want enchilada pie for breakfast...and to Lindsey @ Pinch of Yum!

    1. Carol, you are really going to like this. Can't wait to see what you do with the recipe and always look forward to Bob's photos.

  3. Mmm...looks and sounds delicious! Thanks for sharing and have a wonderful day :)

  4. The weather is turning cold here in Arkansas. This would be perfect for a cold day! Thank you for the recipe! -Marci @ Stone Cottage Adventures

  5. My son chose this to feature at this week's See Ya in the Gumbo. If he hadn't picked it, I would have! Definitely something we will enjoy! Thanks for sharing. I'm running behind due to being out of town, so this week's party will start Monday night.

  6. So delicious! Bookmarked and will do it for my family this week. Thanks for sharing.
