In all honesty, I think my daughter is more Mexican than Panamanian… At least when it comes to food. Otherwise, she loves Panama as if she was born and had lived there. I guess it’s just that magical of a place – yes, I’m totally trying to persuade you to plan a trip there and then come back to tell me all about it. 😉
Back to food. She loves tacos and every Tuesday says, “Mami, it’s Taco Tuesday!” I love tacos too but I don’t want to eat them on a weekly basis… Instead of Tacos, I offered to make nachos – my husband’s idea – and she gladly accepted. Not to say that she runs things around here… But sometimes she wins, especially when I don’t have dinner pre-planned.
I came up with some delicious and super easy chicken nachos, using ingredients that I mostly had. On the Border Monterey Jack Queso, Tostitos hint of lime chips, Two chicken breasts, adobo, corn, and jalapeños.
Happy 4th of July Y’all! While I am lucky to be home with the girls, my husband had to work. But the good thing is that he gets off work really early. 🙂
And even though we haven’t really made plans for tonight, I thought it would be nice to at least start our day off with something fun. What’s more fun than 4th of July inspired pancakes?!
I think we’re back to our normal schedule… So here’s another easy recipe! Taco Bowls with Old El Paso’s Taco Boats Flour Tortillas. I’ll be honest the first time I saw these, I thought’ “why not just use regular tortillas.” I bought them anyway because I had a crowd at home, and it seemed like the perfect quick meal to feed everyone. We liked them so much, that I have made a few variations since.
The one that I am sharing today is with ground beef. If you have visited my blog before, you know that I am all about delicious but quick meals. If this is your first time visiting, make sure to check out previous recipes. 😉 Now, on to the instructions…
Making the Taco Bowls
First, I set the rice to make. Then sautéed onions and jalapeños, mixed in beef and taco seasoning; cooking until browned. I lowered the heat and added the salsa, making sure to mix it well. Then, heated the taco boats according to the package instructions.
Chicken wings are a must have here at home. They’re super easy to make, so I make them about once a month. And they don’t need to be thawed out which is great. If I haven’t decided what to make for dinner on any given day, I can take these out of the freezer and have them ready in under an hour.
While browsing around Pinterest I found this Cajun Chicken Wings recipe and decided to give it a try. It was delicious by the way.
It’s taco Tuesday! And while this is NOT a taco recipe, it’s the same cuisine so keep scrolling. 😛 Last week, I made these super easy and delicious burrito bowls, they didn’t require much effort at all.
If you follow me on Instagram, you got a sneak peek on my stories. And because a promise is a promise, I am sharing the recipe below.
Rice and Chicken
First, I made about a cup and a half of rice. While the rice was cooking, I seasoned three chicken breasts with a little bit of adobo, minced garlic, salt and pepper to taste. Once cooked, I chopped each breast, added a bit of cilantro and set aside.
