Chicken Enchilada Dip

Everyone LOVED the Chicken Enchilada Dip on Friday night....and ask that I share the recipe.....SO here it is:

Chicken Enchalida Dip
1 large canned chicken breast
1 can Cream of Mushroom Soup
4 oz Cream Cheese
Handfull Shredded Cheese
4-6 oz Green Salsa

Put everything in a little dip crockpot and heat. Serve with Tortilla Chips. It's always a HUGE hit at parties!

If you put 6 oz of the Green Salsa in here - it's a little spicey! Just the way I like it!

Thanksgiving Table Decor

Would these be the BOMB at your Thanksgiving feast???? One of my demonstrators - Lisa - made these for the Fox River Mall Expo. She stamped up Pumpkin Pie cardstock with the Baroque Motifs stamp, cut them into 1 1/2" x 11" strips (for the big pumpkin), stamped the leaf from the With Gratitude stamp set and WAAA LAAA!!!! You could use the smaller pumpkins for individual place settings! Way to go LISA!
