What's the DISH?

Join us each month as we highlight and celebrate the JA Team favorites! Take the opportunity to learn just a little more about how each of us creates our own JA Magic and about our personalities as we share our favorite recipes, hobbies, and local restaurants - from our family to yours.

This month’s Dish features Heather New, our Solutions Coordinator here at JA Benefits.

Before starting with JA, Heather spent one year working as a Documentation Specialist for Cook Pharmica, maintaining a document library and providing revisions of policies and practices.

In her community, Heather has organized the Springville Festival/Parade, as well as rebuilt fundraisers after her community center was lost due to fire.

Heather’s favorite thing to do outside of work is read. She is constantly looking for her next favorite book. She also enjoys spending lots of time outdoors with her husband and kids. They like to camp and fish at Lake Monroe. Occasionally, when she needs an adrenaline rush, her go-to is white water rafting and rollercoasters.

Heather's JA Magic

Chicken Enchiladas

“I love Mexican food and I almost always have these items on hand for a quick and easy dinner. Plus, everyone loves this at my house.”


  • 1-1.5 lbs chicken breast diced and browned (or 2-3 cans of pre-cooked chicken breast)
  • 1 can Ro-Tel tomatoes
  • 1 can black beans
  • 1 can corn
  • 1 block cream cheese, cubed
  • 1 pkg taco or fajita seasoning
  • 1 can green enchilada sauce
  • 1 pkg flour tortilla shells


  1. Mix browned chicken breast with Ro-Tel tomatoes, black beans, corn, cream cheese, and taco or fajita seasoning. Let simmer until cream cheese is melted and mix well.
  2. In a 9-inch baking dish, pour ½ can enchilada sauce in bottom of the pan. You can either cut tortillas into strips and layer the tortillas and the chicken mixture or you can roll the individual enchiladas.
  3. Top with the remaining enchilada sauce and shredded cheese.
  4. Bake until cheese is melted.

McAlister’s Deli

Heather’s favorite dish from McAlister’s is their 4 Cheese Griller.

“It’s so simple and feels like a comfort food, plus it’s inexpensive!”
