The “favorite dinner” varies in our house from season to season, yet one dish that is always high on the list is a good pot pie recipe.

Lt. Dan has loved pot pies as long as I’ve known him. The year we met, he would leave the office we were both interning in, to go out for pot pie lunches on Fridays.

Twenty years and two babies later, and I still know how to make him smile.

Carson has followed suit, agreeing with daddy that a pot pie recipe is the end-all when it comes to comfort food.

Yet, even with our favorite classic pot pie recipe, it’s sometimes fun to mix things up and add a little ole’ to the dinner table.

My Chicken Enchilada Pot Pie recipe couldn’t be easier.

I made a quick chicken enchilada filling using fresh veggies, Old El Paso Green Chiles and Enchilada Sauce. Old El Paso Enchilada Sauce is so flavorful, it turns plain chicken filling into something truly amazing.

I scooped the filling into muffin tins lined with puff pastry.  Then I topped each Chicken Enchilada Pot Pie with cheese, closed them up, and popped them in the oven for 20 minutes.

    My husband claims he doesn’t like pot pie. What a weirdo, right? I think this would TOTALLY change his mind though.

    I made these last night and we all loved them — even my picky eater! I couldn’t find enchilada sauce but substituted some Jack’s fresh salsa instead and it tasted great. I doubled the recipe and managed to fit 16 of these into two muffin tins with no trouble. Really nice presentation and we ate them up. Only one leftover for me for lunch today!
