Simply Organic Chicken Fajita’s Yumolishous ;)

20130721-183835.jpg

Todays surprise Dinner for Randy was …….Simply Organic Chicken Fajita’s Yumolishous ;)
Start by cuting your chicken into 1/4 in slices
Put them into a ziplock bag with 2Tb of olive oil and then add your (Simply Organic Chicken Fijita seasoning mix. Love this stuff!)
and put into the refrigerate for a couple of hours to marinate them.

After marinating add the chicken into a skillet with 2 Tb of olive oil on med high heat and cook them till just done. Don’t over cook them or they will be tough and dry ;( yuk!

While chicken is cooking prepare your other ingredients.

I like to use red and yellow bell peppers and onions. Cut them into strips and add them into your 2nd skillet with 1/2 Tb. of olive oil and cook them on med high heat till they are crispy done.
Cut open your avocados and slice them and spoon them into a bowl. ( these are your garnish or in my case the topping! Lol ) We also like Mexican style cheese and lettuce for toppings.

We prefer corn tortillas instead of flour….can’t do flour….have to stay gluten free ;)
So I spray olive oil on a sheet pan and lay the corn tortillas on it then spray lightly on top of them too and bake them for 5 min at 350*
They always turn out perfectly. ;)

When I first had to go gluten free I didn’t think I’d ever be able to have Mexican food again…… But when there’s a will there’s a way…right!

Here’s to eating gluten free and staying healthy 🆓 🆓 🆓 🆓 🆓

Our all time favorite Tacos with a surprise twist

20130719-123921.jpg
I know I’ve blogged about my favorite taco brand seasoning before but I couldn’t let this one slip by without telling y’all about it. I went to Akins Natural foods the other day and came across this (new to me) NuI Latin Cuisine 100% Natural Chipotle Taco Seasoning. OMGOSH! It is AWESOME! DELISH! YUMMY! My husband and I couldn’t stop making the uuummmmuuummmm noise as we went to town on these tacos! I promise you, your goin to looooooove these ;)
Here’s the surprise twist : Fire Roasted Diced Tomatoes ;)
Now the only thing I did different from what the package directions tell you to do was instead of adding the water and the tomato paste I added 1 can of Fire Roasted Diced Tomatoes.
Eating gluten free Mexican food at home couldn’t be anymore satisfying ;) These are a weekly event at our home. You will not need taco sauce…..it’s perfect on its own. Happy Safe Gluten Free Eating ;)

Taco Fresco……..Frisky?

My husband loves Tacos…..well, all Mexican food really but Tacos are his Faves. Beef tacos, chicken tacos, fish tacos, carnitas tacos……… I feel like Bubba talking about all the ways to make shrimp….oh! Shrimp tacos! ;) LOL. I know tacos are easy smeasy to make but just in case there’s a newbie wifey / hubby out there reading my blog I’d like to show her / him how smeasy it is.

First I love the Nueva Cocina Latin Cuisine 100% Natural Taco Fresco Seasoning & Veggie Mix brand that I buy at Whole Foods. It is Gluten Free and VERY GOOD.
I brown my meat ( beef, chicken, pork, shrimp, fish ) what every floats your boat. ( Oh my….I’m on a Bubba Gump Shrimp Boat still…LOL ) Drain off the fat and return to the skillet and add in the Taco Fresco Seasoning. Sauté it for one minute then add in 1/4 cup of water and 8 oz of Tomato Sauce and simmer for 5 mins.

While this is simmering I chop up some of our home grown leafy lettuce, and tomato.
I also grill up some Soft Mission Yellow Corn Tortillas to warm them up and put them in a tortilla warmer keeper thinging……sorry, I don’t know what it’s called. :/

When meat has finished I put everything on the kitchen island and we attack it with gusto… we assemble our own tacos adding the meet, shredded cheese, lettuce, tomato onto the corn tortillas and go to town eating them! Now Randy LOVES his jalapeños and so he tops his with those. You can add other things like black olives, sour cream, hot sauce, whatever you want, but I don’t think it needs anything else. :) the Taco Fresco is that good! Anywho…..:)

I want to tell you what my sweet husband said to me tonight. :)
He said ” Yuuuuummmmmm, there is nothing like home made tacos honey……..” then he paused and said ” I cherish you, when was the last time I told you that I cherished you?” :) I said….it’s just been a little while…… I said you cherish me because I feed you good….. He said well yeah but I really, really do. :) I love this man, this man of mine ;)
