This weekend I made some yummy chicken tacos for my roomies. I had been perusing some recipes and knew that I wanted something packed with a lot of flavor and spicy. Have I mentioned how much I adore spicy?? My tolerance level for spicy foods is pretty impressive. Anyway, it is a pretty quick meal and tastes amazing.
Add garlic & onion to any meal and I have a happy stomach. I always burn my onions slightly to add more flavor, stolen trick from my mother’s delicious cooking. So thankful that I had such a great example of cooking quick and delicious healthy meals when I was growing up. My mother cooks every single meal for my dad and her every single night. If that’s not impressive and inspiring I don’t know what is!
Such a better price and such a better bod when you choose to cook your own food. This meal requires about 2 tsps of olive oil versus about 2 tbsp of butter that I would have consumed if I would have gone to a Mexican restaurant. Plus, I didn’t gorge on chips. Always guilty leaving Mexican restaurants, not to mention uncomfortable! OYE!
2 Chicken Breasts
1/2 White Onion
Sliced Garlic (about 2 tsp)
1/2 Green Pepper
1/2 cup cilantro

Throw in your chicken to a pan and cook. Chop up your onion, pepper, garlic, cabbage while chicken is cooking. Toss in the onions to brown first, then garlic and peppers. Put your beans on the stove to heat. Add spices on chicken and veggies. Microwave a tortilla, if you feel the need to be fancy you can heat on the stove. Voila! Grab a plate! Put meat and veggies in tortilla, spoon black beans on top. Next comes the colorful cabbage and avocados on top. Salsa to the side. For the total time of 20 minutes.
Purple cabbage is a great way to add some color into your meal
