Q + K Taco Night

in Chicken, Cooking, Grilling

Q and I love cooking. Q was working in a restaurant when we started dating and he definitely is the master chef of the two of us. Our normal game plan is that he cooks all the meat and I handle the sides/carb and dessert. This is a good deal for me seeing as I am the carb/dessert lover of the two of us and find enjoyment making a peanut butter pie or pasta dish while Q loves handling the grill.

Fairbanks isn’t known for its superb dining selection. The lone Chili’s closed 2 weeks ago and that was on the higher end of the restaurant scale. This is actually a blessing because it encourages us to eat in as many meals as possible. I got inspiration for taco night from Elise who started this little tradition when her husband returned from his deployment. Our initial taco night was a hit and we will definitely be making this a usual occurrence when I move up in August.

Grilled Chicken Tacos

Serves 2 

What we used:

  • 6 soft taco size flour tortillas
  • 1 grilled chicken breast, diced
  • Spanish Rice (we used Rice-A-Roni), cooked according to package
  • 1 can black beans, drained and heated
  • Salsa
  • Romaine lettuce, chopped
  • Mexican cheese
  • Avocado, sliced

How we made them:

  • We heated our tortillas in a toaster oven until warm. On each tortilla, we layered chicken, rice, beans, salsa, lettuce, cheese and avocado.
