Today’s Menu: Chicken Fajitas w/ Refried Beans

 

Chicken Fajitas 015

Another gorgeous Spring Day out again, Sunny and 70’s! We are having our wooden deck painted today, slowly but surely repairing everything. Everyone seems to be having a problem with Ants this Spring, hate Ants worse than I do Spiders! Went to Kroger and bought some Ant Spray to spray in the house and around the house outside. Got the cart out for a while, went down to our community lake and got the mail, beautiful outside! For dinner tonight, Chicken Fajitas w/ Refried Beans.

 

 

Chicken Fajitas 005

I used Ortega Fajita Skillet Sauce for my Fajita Sauce Base, I love using the Ortega Sauces. To prepare I’ll need the following; the Ortega Fajita Skillet Sauce, Simple Truth Roaster Chicken, Delallo Tri-Color Pepperazzi Spicy Sweet Peppers, Chopped Jalapeno slices, Daisy Reduced Fat Sour Cream, fresh Shredded Sargento Asiago Cheese, and Mission Yellow Corn Tortillas. For the Chicken I purchased a Simple Truth Rotisserie Whole Chicken from the Kroger Deli earlier. Pulled all the meat and using it for my Fajitas.

 

 

 

I heated up a tablespoon of Extra Virgin Olive Oil in a medium size skillet over medium heat. I started by slicing the Sweet Peppers into strips and adding them to the skillet, stirring them and cooking until tender (about 4 minutes). Chicken Fajitas 008Stirred in the Chicken and sliced Jalapenos, stirred this for about 5 minutes. Then added the Ortega Fajita Skillet Sauce, cooking another 3 minutes till everything was heated through. Heated up the tortillas in the microwave for 20 seconds and topped them with a dab of the Daisy Reduced Fat Sour Cream and the Chicken Fajita Mixture. I also topped it with some fresh grated Asiago Cheese, and served. I keep packets of the Ortega Skillet Sauces in stock, it makes one delicious Fajita! Has a nice heat to it but not overpowering and the taste of the Ortega Sauce is incredible!Served with a side of Old El Paso Fat Free Refried Beans. For dessert later a Healthy Choice Dark Fudge Swirl Frozen Greek Yogurt.

Metabolism-Boosting Dinners

From the EatingWell website it’s Metabolism-Boosting Dinners. http://www.eatingwell.com/

 
Metabolism-Boosting DinnersEatingWell2
Flavor-packed low-calorie dinners made with chiles.
Boost your metabolism with these zesty healthy chile recipes. From mild to fiery, research shows that a compound in chiles (capsaicin) helps trigger the body’s natural cooling system and revs up your metabolism. Chiles also add the perfect amount of heat to savory dishes like Mini Chile Relleno Casseroles and Thai Chicken Stir-Fry with Basil & Cashews.

 

 

Chile-Crusted Scallops with Cucumber Salad
A refreshing salad of cucumbers and roasted cashews makes a nice contrast to these smoky scallops. You can make the salad and scallop skewers up to 8 hours in advance; cover separately and store in the refrigerator until you’re ready to grill……

 

 

Butterflied Grilled Chicken with a Chile-Lime Rub
A quick and efficient way to cook a whole bird on the grill is to butterfly it. This method is so popular, especially in Southern California, that large chains have thrived selling chile-rubbed butterflied chicken to happy patrons. When cooking a whole chicken on the grill, try searing the chicken first over direct heat then finish cooking over indirect heat (as instructed in this recipe). That way you avoid the all too common problem when grilling—chicken burned on the outside and raw in the center. For best flavor, let the chicken marinate in the rub overnight in the refrigerator. Serve with lime wedges and fresh salsa……

Burger Grilling Hints….

 
* Do not salt your beef until the patties are formed. Salt will dissolve muscle proteins, which can turn your burgers from moist and tender to sausage-like and springy.
* Don’t ever flatten or squish your burgers with a spatula while they are grilling. You might as well pick it up with your hands and squeeze out all of the juices.
