Tequila Lime Chicken Fajitas

Tequila can be used in more ways than just for margaritas. In this recipe, I add the tequila and lime juice to the chicken marinade to add a brightness and “kick” that contrasts with the smokiness of the chicken cooked on the grill.

Cheesy Rice and Bean Bake with Chipotle Adobo Chicken

Chipotles in adobo sauce are smoked and dried peppers, which are rehydrated and packed in a mix of tomato paste, herbs and vinegar. The combination adds a smoky, spicy kick to the chicken served with the cheesy rice and bean bake.

Street tacos are the authentic yet simple tacos that you can get from street stands - they consist of meat with a topping on small corn tortillas. What these tacos lack in crazy toppings they make up in flavor.

Chicken Burrito Bowl

Burrito bowls are my go-to weeknight meal. They are easy to make and serve family-style so everyone can assemble their own bowls with their own desired toppings. The leftovers make great on-the-go lunches to take to work. Another plus of making your own burrito bowls? You can have as much guacamole as you want with no additional cost!
