When you're a homesick Texan, easy Mexican dishes are something that you need to have tucked up your sleeve.
Solid Mexican food is seriously hard to come by in the Mid-West, unless you're at Pancheros. But if you're looking to avoid the drunk, downtown goers in line, you'll be looking for a while. So when the going gets tough, you make your own!
This is the easiest most versatile dish in my rolodex...not that I actually have a rolodex. Does anybody remember those, before everything was digital? I am obsessed with putting things from pen to paper, maybe I should get one. Anyways, back to the food.
This is pretty much your home version of your favorite local Mexican grill. If we are going to break it down, here's the steps:
- Pick you meat: chicken breast, chicken thigh, ground turkey
- Pick your peppers & onions
- Pick your depth: black beans, pinto beans, rice
- Pick your toppings: taco sauce, guacamole, queso, shredded cheese, tomatoes, salsa cilantro, jalapeños, etc.
Want a less carb-y version? Skip the rice and/or beans and throw over some greens! Want to add more flavor at ease? Stop by your local Mexican grill and pick up their queso and/or guac!
