Tex-Mex

One of my favourite dinners.   

Not a difficult meal to put together even on a work night.

The first step was to make the salsa.

I used a little of the salsa in a quick marinade for boneless chicken breasts.

Also squeezed the juice of a lime and a little olive oil over the chicken and set it aside while I made the corn tortillas.

The grill heated while the tortillas were cooking.  

 
I used a Cast Iron Tortilla Press to form the corn tortillas.


As the tortillas came off the griddle they were placed in an insulated pouch to keep warm.

The chicken didn't take long to grill.


Chicken tacos - warm corn tortillas topped with grilled chicken, 
homemade salsa, a sprig of cilantro, 
a squeeze of fresh lime and guacamole.


Not wanting to waste the leftover corn tortillas I made Migas for breakfast.


  Scrambled Eggs 
with onions, Jalapeno Peppers, garlic, tomatoes, and fried corn tortillas,
 cheese, avocado and salsa.
