Chicken Tacos

Pretty sky!

We decided on chicken tacos tonight because we had some ground chicken that we needed to use up.

I was completely okay with this decision!

Mike was in charge of the chicken and he cooked it perfectly.  He seasoned it with Key Lime Cilantro taco seasoning which I highly recommend.  It was quite good.

We added kidney beans, sprouted grain corn tortillas, blue corn tortilla chips, homemade guacamole and salsa to the mix and viola!  We had ourselves a nice little Mexican meal.

So good.

I seriously ate the below times about 7.

Couldn’t stop myself from going back for more!

We watched True Blood while we ate – it was a good episode!

After dinner I headed to the gym and did a little cross training followed by a short yoga session.

Felt so good – am I becoming an evening exerciser!?  This could be the start of a beautiful relationship ;)

Off to bed for this tired girl, night everyone!

Everytime you have Mexican, I want it. It’s on our menu this week – maybe tomorrow. I just wish I had that key lime seasoning…sounds like my kind of thing. Sleep well!

I LOVE to exercise at night— but it amps me up instead of winding me down to go to bed.

I actually do okay with still being able to go to bed – not sure why!

Looks fantastic! I only eat corn tortillas now – they don’t have that stick-to-the-roof-of-your-mouth effect like flour.

Yep exactly! We’re the same way. Love them.

I’m obsessed w/ your sky view! I never got into True Blood…I think I was over vampires when it first started. Sleep well.

Haha – it’s the ONLY vampire show I watch. I resisted it for a long time as well but got sucked in (no pun intended) with my whole family over last Christmas!

Mmm your taco nights always make me hungry. And I just polished off yummy chicken enchiladas . Totally impressed you went to the gym after dinner. I can handle gym, then dinner in the evenings, but not so much in the reverse!

Haha yeah – it was definitely a little rocky but I wasn’t doing anything too intense so I did alright :)

We love chicken tacos but never used ground chicken before. I bet it would be a great change in chicken. We will have to give it a go!!!

I love taco night haha! The lime seasoning sounds good on ground chicken, I will have to try that :)

Definitely try it. It specified it for fish but we were really pleased with how it tasted on the chicken!

What season of True Blood are you on? We just finished up Season 3 and it’s killing me to know that Season 4 isn’t going to be on DVD for like another year. But I just can’t bring myself to pay for premium cable.

We’re on the current season! And I know – my sister has HBO GO so we use that (thank goodness!)

Those tortillas look delicious–nice and hearty!

Haha – don’t let the picture fool you, they weren’t the best. Definitely hearty but they kind of cracked on us…I guess that’s what you get with sprouted grain!

I love evening yoga! it’s pretty much the only exercise I can do at night. It’s so relaxing!

I know – it’s such a nice way to end the day :)

Do you give out your guac recipe? I make it too and like to compare to see if there is maybe something that I’m missing in mine to make it taste better.

Reply

Cait's Plate August 30, 2011

I didn’t – but basically we add avocado, salt, fresh lime juice and fresh cilantro (if we have it on hand) to taste then mix it all up!
