I looooove Mexican food! I used to always use those packages, but when I couldn't make them quite as safe as I would have liked, this was a recipe I came up with while I was living in England that was a very regular meal for Adrian and I:
Ingredients: (These amounts aren't perfect, I had to improv a lot and Adrian eats enough for about 3 normal people so... )
Flour Tortillas 1.5 cups of cooked rice 1 lb diced, chicken breast Mexican seasoning (or use seasoning of choice) 1 can stewed, diced tomatoes 1/2 cup onion, chopped into small pieces 1 cup cleaned, chopped mushrooms (optional.. not very mexican! ) Diced fresh tomatoes and lettuce (optional)
In a pan sprayed with cooking spray, cook diced chicken breast with the onions. While cooking, add in seasoning. When almost cooked, add in the mushrooms and cook until softened. Add in the stewed tomatoes and the cooked rice and simmer gently in the pan for 10-15 minutes. Put flour tortillas in aluminium foil and bake for approximately 10 minutes on 350. (Optional: Can spray in between tortillas with I Can't Believe It's Not Butter spray).
Spoon mixture into tortillas. Add some fresh diced tomatoes and lettuce, and then soy cheese and sour cream if desired. Fold up ends and roll up, and then ENJOY!!
Guacomole is another favourite Mexican food of mine. Some baked tortilla chips, medium salsa and guacomole... YUMMY!! I make my own tortilla chips by spraying ICBINB spray and putting a bit of sea salt on cut up flour tortillas and baking them in the oven until they are as crispy as I like them.
Fajitas with grilled chicken/turkey and veggies are also very yummy and safe!
Mmmm, now I am craving Mexican! --Steph
