Tequila Taco Chicken
I went to the Farmers Market yesterday and brought home some tomatoes, and a selection of chili peppers, some hot, some mild. So....
Chicken tenders are marinating with: tequila, oil, cumin, onion, garlic powders, oregano; will grill it on skewers.
Sauce: pureed in a blender tomatoes (peeled and seeded), diced onion, peppers, garlic, cumin seed, oregano, vinegar, oil; simmering in a slow cooker, thickened it with a cornstarch slurry.
Beans: can of pinto, can of black, sauteed mild green chili pepper, onion, chicken stock; will mash it slightly with a potato masher.
Rice: sauteed mild green chili, garlic. Added brown rice, paprika, cumin seed. When it starts to color, add water.
Will serve with fried corn and flour shells, shredded lettuce and cheese.
