Let me start by saying, this was not supposed to be a blog post. I have been quite busy with work and Summer that I have not had time to create weekly meal plans. All of our meals have been repeats (which are great), just nothing new to post on here. I was inspired to make Mexican last night and I wanted to keep it simple and fresh. Sorry for the picture quality, like I said - I was not planning on posting this one. It was too good not to though, so I snapped away with my phone camera.
1 rotisserie chicken; skin removed and breast meat shredded
1 can Ro*tel tomatoes
1/2 tsp. onion powder
1/2 tsp. garlic powder
1/2 tsp. chili powder
1 can fat-free refried beans; warmed on the stove
2 ripe avocados
2 Roma tomatoes; diced
1 jalapeno; seeded and minced
1 garlic clove; minced
Salt and Pepper
In a medium sauce pan, combine shredded chicken, Ro*tel, onion powder, garlic powder and chili powder. Squeeze half of lime over chicken and warm over medium heat, stirring frequently, for 8-10 minutes.
In a small bowl add 1 avocado and mash with a fork. Add tomatoes, garlic clove, jalapeno and salt and pepper. Mix to combine well. Squeeze remaining half of lime over guacamole.
Warm corn tortillas. Spread each tortilla with refried beans and top with chicken mixture and guacamole. I sliced another avocado and added that on top as well. (I am an avocado nut!)
I had cheese and salsa out, but we didn't use either ingredient and didn't miss them.
Recipe created by me.
We both LOVED this recipe. It had just enough heat and was so flavorful and easy to make. I could make this one every week and be happy. Try it!
