“You’re my reason for reason
The step in my groove”
-Santana featuring Rob Thomas (Song : Smooth)
The Latin heat! I’m always amazed at how passionate Latinos are. Their culture, their music and of course, their food.
I wanted to make a full Mexican meal. The whole enchilada, if you will. Started off with the Pico de Gallo Salsa above. Such fresh flavors. And we ate the salsa with some tortilla chips.
And not just any tortilla chips, but oven-baked, homemade ones. Wholemeal tortilla, cut into wedges and brushed with a little oil and seasoned lightly with salt and pepper, cumin and paprika. My kids loved these! They can’t stop munching.
This was something new to me. I used Monterey Jack cheese for the first time when making the quesadillas. So yummy! And the chicken was just sautéed in onions and garlic, dried oregano, paprika, salt and pepper. Made a lot so I would have some leftovers for my lunch at work tomorrow.
