Second Year Blogiversary


We cannot believe how much Chez Us has evolved.  It is so much fun to look back and see how the site has grown.  Not to mention all the fantastic readers we have, who comment and share the same passion!  The relationships are really amazing and we talk about this often over at Chez Us.  If it was not for the love of eating, cooking, drinking and food, none of us would have ever met!  We thank you for being here and sharing your lives with us!


We decided on our first Blogiversary (we had more time then and even had a video to show you how) to recreate the orginal meal we had at the very beginning, which was Vegetarian Enchiladas washed down with Blood Orange Margaritas.  This year we decided to change it around a bit by making Chicken Enchiladas.   The recipe I use is really fantastic – chicken thighs (they have more flavor) that have been poached with bay leaves and garlic and then combined with lots of sour cream, mild green chilies and cheddar cheese, finally smothered with a chipotle pepper sauce.  We served them with Spanish Rice and re-fried pinto beans, which I spice up with mild chilies, lime juice and cheese.  A birthday celebration would not be a celebration without our famous Blood Orange Margaritas!

Here’s to another great year – we have some fun things planned and look forward to you being a part of it all!  We will be making/adding a BIG announcement to this post in a day or two!!  It is BIG & FUN!



  1. Happy Birthday and keep up with the great work!

    Aliseo Foods makes 100% Fresh Squeezed Blood Orange juice all year round! It comes in a 1 liter carton and has no added sugar, very refreshing. I have actually used it to make margaritas (I live in Texas!) and it is so much easier than squeezing the fruit.

  9. Congratulations and keep it up! And good luck with your move.

  10. Oh, those are gorgeous! And the enchiladas–I think I’ll have to try both versions, for sure.
