I’ve become quite proficient at making something from nothing. When Hubbs says “there’s no food in the house”, I can always surprise him with something delicious. Last night it was Spicy Chicken Tacos! This was a fresh, crisp, healthy dinner seemingly made from “nothing”.
What we have here is a white corn tortilla. (I find that the white corn tortillas have a softer texture than the yellow corn tortillas.) First came the brown rice. Then spicy chicken, corn, lettuce, avocado, cheese and tomato. MMMMM.
Make your chicken spicy: I took one chicken breast and pan fried it in a little bit of olive oil and a lot of roasted garlic. Once the chicken was almost cooked through, I chopped it before throwing it back in the pan to finish cooking. I then added 5 or 6 shakes of tabasco sauce, some chilli powder and black pepper. You can add more or less of the spices and tabasco depending on how spicy you like your chicken.
TIPS: Always keep tortillas and a can of diced tomatoes in the house, they are a base for anything taco related. And thankfully for us… you can put almost anything in a taco and call it good.
