Today, because my feet hurt from standing all day, I am sitting here, typing this recipe to share with the world. It's not too ground-breaking, but the last time I made it, all three kids ate and ate and ate and didn't say much until they had cleaned their plates. Three kids, eating, and chewing and "Mmmm"ing equals a very tasty meal.
And so, without further delay...
2 large (3 small) chicken breasts
1 pkg taco seasoning*
8-10 large tortillas*
1 can refried beans (398 mL)
1 1/2 cups salsa
300 g cheddar cheese, shredded
Cube chicken and pan-fry until no longer pink. Add taco seasoning and a splash of water (a couple tablespoons, maybe). Cook a few more minutes to let the seasoning permeate the chicken. Give it a spin through a food chopper for a few pulses, just until the chunks are broken up and shredded.
(I cannot get this picture to turn the right way. It's very weird. It has a mind of its own.)
(I cannot get this picture to turn the right way either. It's got its brother's mind.)
1/2 teaspoon paprika
1 teaspoon sea salt
Mix with the meat, adding 1/2 a cup of water if using ground meat. Allow to simmer for a few minutes until well combined and the water has started to evaporate off.
