Last night's Chicken Tacos...Mmm!
Last night I tried a Betty Crocker recipe for Wild West Sizzlin' Chicken Tacos. (just click the title of the recipe to be taken to the complete instructions) They were simply delicious! The whole family loved them, and I will definitely have them again.
I did make a couple of adjustments. DH does not care for beans, so I just didn't put any on his. I had a packet of taco seasoning, so I used that on the chicken instead of the cumin and paprika. Also, I didn't have any fresh red bell pepper, but I did have a jar of roasted red peppers in the fridge that worked beautifully.
I'm trying to build a nice collection of recipes to use for a menu plan. When I find a good one like this, I'll add it to the collection. Now that I know the family likes this, I will be sure to make up a big batch of chicken strips next time and freeze them in dinner size portions. This is another strategy that I'm working on. Building up my freezer with prepared ahead components of a dinner for quick meal preparation.
