Jarrod and I wanted something delicious for dinner, so we decided to try this recipe for Chicken Fajitas. We followed Skinny Taste’s recipe to a T, except we also made some brown rice to mix in. The recipe doesn’t say how long to marinate the chicken, so we let it go for about 30 minutes.
We both felt what threw this meal over the edge to amazingness was the guacamole we made to go with it.
My recipe for guacamole adapted from my Chipotle days in college:
I kid you not, this recipe post-it has been on my fridge for over five years. I’ve moved from apartment to apartment to house, and this puppy is ALWAYS displayed on the fridge 🙂
We each had 1 Mama Lupe’s low carb tortillas that I had ordered from Netrition, and we threw everything that couldn’t fit into the tortilla atop a bed of lettuce. We also had some fresh salsa we had picked up last week, so we drizzled a little on top.
Yes, I cleared my plate. Yes, I contemplated licking it clean.
Skinny Taste chicken fajitas + chipotle inspired guac = best dinner we’ve made in a long friggin time!
BTW, I told Jarrod he is now required to plate all foods before photo sessions. That plate looks absolutely beautiful!
Side Note –
Yesterday on the way home from the hair stylist, I tried the Chocolate Raspberry Luna bar. The bar had been in the hot car for a little while, so it was slightly melty and absolutely divine tasting!
I hadn’t had cold oatmeal (or “overnight oats” as food bloggers call it) in quite a while. After reading about Leashieloo’s recent success with overnight oats, I decided to make some up last night.
Here’s what I threw in:
- 1/2 cup quick oats
- 1/2 cup almond breeze unsweetened vanilla almond milk
- 1 tsp peanut butter
- 1 tsp brown sugar
- 1 tsp choc chips (which was like 4 chips, but I figured what the hay that’d give me four chocolately delicious bites)
- A sprinkling of cinnamon
I stirred up the oats and popped them into the fridge to hang out for the night. This morning, I added some chopped up strawberries.
Oatmeal is great for you, but who the heck wants a steaming bowl of oats in the hot summer months? Most people think cold oatmeal sounds appalling. To those people I say quit being so cantankerous and give it a shot! What’s most fun about overnight oats is you can mix in ANYTHING you want. Seriously, just give it a shot already! And let me know how they turn out!
