 Chicken Bacon Soft Tacos


Baked chicken breast pulled apart in pieces (I like using the whole baked chicken from the Deli with drum sticks/thighs left over for another meal)
2 cooked bacon slices chopped (I use the cooked smoked dried bacon in the bag)
1 1/2 bell peppers ( I like using different colors to brighten up the meal!)
1/2 cup of Salsa
1/2 cup of Pico de Gallo
1/2 cup of chicken broth (can be from the baked chicken or by the can)
1/2 Tablespoon of minced garlic
2 Tablespoons of Parsley - fresh chopped or dry
1/2 cup of Cilantro - fresh chopped or dry
1 can of chopped green chilies
3-6 green onions chopped

Put all the ingredients into Crock pot and put on high for 1 hour then on low until serving.  Make sure bell peppers are soft.  Serve with heated Flour or Corn Tortillas (my favorite is blue corn and flax seed tortillas), sour cream, avocado slices, shredded lettuce, additional salsa and pico de gallo.

Cooking at Home During Quarantine

I like cooking, but I can't wait to be able to go out, sit at a table in a restaurant, order, eat, and enjoy family and friends. The only thing I won't like is the bill, but it will be so worth it.

Tex-Mex Chicken Burrito Bowl

Tex-Mex Chicken Burrito Bowl Okay, I like to try different things, so I buy lots of food magazines for ideas! A very recent one this year 2023, Cooking Light magazine, had an assortment of different "power bowls" to make. I decided to try this one with chicken, but you can substitute any type of meat you would like in it, i.e. shredded beef, ground beef, and if you are daring, no meat substitutes! Well, that last one is not for me!  Below is the actual recipe I used. If you don't subscribe to Cooking Light, you are missing some great ideas of recipes for you and/or your family. When I saw this edition, I knew it was a game changer for me. I can take the recipe and modify it for the fussy eaters in my family and make it their own.  First, I made it "almost" like the recipe calls for to see what the results would be from everyone. My conclusion was, I loved it just the way it was, but not so with the others. So below is my suggestion on what to do so you don't
