30 Before 30: Item 23, Part 5!!!!

Well, it is official! I've completed Item 23: Learn to Cook 5 Meals! It's kind of sorry that it has taken me this long to only cook 5 times....but hey, you gotta start somewhere, right? I'm pretty stoked about this accomplishment because I have not been known to be good in the kitchen...in fact, I've been known to be downright bad!

So, for my fifth meal, I made Chicken Tacos with Homemade Guacamole! Enjoy!

What You Need for the Chicken Tacos:
  • 2 Boneless, Skinless Chicken Breasts
  • 4 Flour Tortillas
  • 1/2 Tomato
  • 1/2 Cup Diced Green & Red Bell Peppers
  • 1/8 Cup Diced Onion
  • 1/4 Cup Lettuce
  • 1/4 Cup Shredded Cheese
  • Salsa
  • Sour Cream
  • Olive oil
  • Salt, Pepper, Cumin, Chili Powder, Paprika, Cayenne
And Action:

In a large pan, heat olive oil and add diced onions. Cut chicken into small strips and add to pan. Season with salt, pepper, cumin, chili powder, paprika and cayenne (approx 1 teaspoon each...less on the cayenne if you're a sissy). Add Diced Green and Red Bell Pepper. Cook thoroughly.

Add salsa to pan, mix into chicken. Remove pan from heat.

Warm up tortillas and add chicken, shredded cheese, tomato and lettuce. Top with salsa, sour cream and guacamole (recipe below).

What You Need for Guacamole:
  • 2 Avacados
  • 1 Tomato
  • 2 Slices Red Onion
  • 1 Lime
  • Cilantro
  • 1 Jalepeno
  • Hot Sauce
  • Salt, Pepper, Chili Powder, Cayenne, Paprika
Guacamole Action:

Chop avacados, tomato, jalepeno and onions. Add to a large bowl. Season with salt, pepper, chili powder, cayenne and paprika. Squeeze in lime juice. Chop cilantro finely and add to bowl. Squeeze in a couple squirts of hot sauce.

Mix all ingrediants together, leaving the avacados a bit chunky (instead of completely mashed). Taste and re-season or add hot sauce to reach desired flavor.

Serve with chips or Chicken Tacos!
