I love the fresh taste of homemade salsa and the fact that you can control the heat.  I made two last night to go with the Chicken Burritos, one mild and one with a little heat.  My Serrano pepper plant was bare so I had to use jalapeno for the heat. The hot salsa is green and the mild salsa is red.

Ingredients:

2 Roma tomatoes seeded

2 Garlic cloves

¼ Jalapeno

Salt and pepper

Cilantro

Lemon juice

For the heat add

2 Hot chili peppers

Red pepper flakes

Directions:

Add all ingredients into a food processor and pulse until the salsa is at the constancy you want.

Chicken Burritos


Chicken Burritos

This is one of the simplest meals I make that is so good.  I cook the chicken in a crock-pot on low for 4-6 hours covered with red chili sauce, as hot as you like it.  When the chicken is done all you need to do is shred the chicken, heat up some beans, make some salsa and guacamole, and have a feast.

Ingredients:

Chicken thighs, boneless and skinless

All-purpose spice rub

Wheat tortillas

Red chili sauce

Black beans, rinsed and heated

Shredded Cheese, your favorite, I use a Mexican blend

Salsa

Guacamole

Anything else you like inside your burritos.

Directions:

Place the chicken thighs in the crock pot, season with all-purpose spice rub, and cover with red chili sauce.  Cook on low for 4-6 hours.  Remove chicken for the crock pot and shred.  Cover the chicken with some of the red chili sauce.

Steam your tortillas and create your burrito.  We like to add the cheese first, and then beans, then chicken and salsa followed by guacamole.  Do whatever way you like, this is a meal easily made yours, enjoy.

Photos will be posted early this evening after we go to the five year old birthday party at a park and it looks like rain in lovely Southern California, hope not.

You may notice, I am back to my original menu plan for today.  My menu took a beating this week, I hope I can somewhat follow it for next week.  I will post my new menu later today.  Happy creating.
