Elephants Delicatessen in Portland, Oregon, has been a favorite since 1979, when the current owners took over the failing deli and launched a menu prepared from scratch with fresh, natural, locally sourced ingredients. This approach was hugely successful, making the specialty-foods deli a trailblazer in the city's sophisticated food scene. Perfect for a quick weeknight meal or as a party treat, this ready-made meal brings together three Tex-Mex favorites from their menu::
Chicken Enchiladas Verde: Tender chicken breasts, smothered in a bright salsa verde with cilantro and cumin, sprinkled with a layer of cheddar and Monterey Jack cheeses.
Lime Tortilla Soup: Chunks of tender chicken and a medley of vegetables in a light broth with a hint of tangy lime juice. Top with included crispy tortilla strips.
Taco Casserole: Hand-made salsa combined with locally sourced ground beef and signature seasonings, topped with Tillamook cheddar and fresh-cut tomatoes and scallions. Scoop into the included soft tortillas for a satisfying meal.
