Chicken Guacamole Tortillas

I’ve been slowing getting back into the cooking mode now that the house is more put together so of course that means, it’s time to let you in on the secrets and the mouth-watering dishes we eat!

CHICKEN GUACAMOLE TORTILLAS: Serves 2-4 (depending on size of tortillas)

Normally, I use chicken but Toblerone was hankering for steak so that’s what I did. It’s great both ways! So, I’ll explain it for those of you who use chicken, however in the pics you will see steak!

1 ripe peeled Avocado

1 small minced onion (fresh)

2 1/2 – 3 Tbsp fresh lime juice or lemon juice (I used both normally)

1 cup + 2 Tbsp finely chopped tomato

1/2 tsp salt

1 garlic clove, minced

1 Tbsp chopped fresh cilantro

1 Tbsp minced, seeded jalapeno pepper (I use one medium size pepper and that is good for us!) 

2 cups shredded, skinless, and boneless chicken. (or of course the steak which you cut into small strips)

1/4 tsp paprika

tortilla shells (soft or hard shells)

Basically, you’re making fresh guacamole and salsa with the majority of the ingredients. To start, here’s how you make the guacamole:

In a small bowl mash the avocado. Stir in 2 Tbsp tomato, 1 Tbsp onion, 1 Tbsp lime juice, 1/4 tsp salt, and garlic. Stir gently not to mash the tomato. I normally don’t measure this out exactly. Add until your hearts desire.

And now to make the salsa:

Combine in a second small bowl, 1 cup of tomato, 2 Tbsp onion, 1 Tbsp lime juice, 1/4 tsp salt, cilantro, and jalapeno. Stir well. I think it may be something with the jalapeno’s here in Germany because they aren’t too hot but in the US my mouth almost fell off so you can omit this if you’re not into the hot stuff.

Next take the strips of meat (chicken, steak, whatevs!) and cover with paprika and work it into the meat by hand. I sometimes put a few drops of lemon juice as well. Cook the meat and voila! It’s ready for preperation!

I usually use the mini tortillas since it’s only Toblerone and I, but the large ones also work! Warm the tortillas per instructions on package. Next, place in this order on the tortilla: Guacamole, meat, then salsa.

Of course you can use sour cream if you like or tabasco sauce. The flavors are good without all the added junk so I usually leave it out.

Guten Appetit!! Tune in next time to learn how to make the best Kase Spaetzle that even Toblerone swears it’s better than his Oma’s! :-))

Until next time, readers!!! xoxoxoxoxo

Avocado Feta Salsa – A Party Favorite!

It’s Easter weekend! Here in Good ole Germ, everyone gets Friday and the following Monday off making it a nice long weekend! I’ve decided to pull together a team of friends for “game night.” Tobes and I will be assembling our foosball table and I’ve found the games we love to play back home. Other than game night we will all be doing adventure weekends too where we go camping or play mini golf. Just little things to get out and see the world a bit.
So, with every party there needs to be fun foods! One of my favorites for any party whether I’m hosting or going, I love to make my Avocado Feta Salsa. It’s so simple to throw together, great colors, and amazing taste!
Ingredients you will need:
2 plum tomatoes
1 ripe avocado
1/4 cup finely chopped red onion ( I use half an onion because I love it)
1 clove of garlic, minced (also, normally 2 cloves for me, garlic lover here!)
1 tablespoon olive oil
1 tablespoon red or white wine vinegar ( I usually use Red)
4 ounces crumbled feta cheese
How to make it:
In a bowl,  gently stir tomatoes, avocado, onion, and garlic. Carefully stir in olive oil and vinegar to be sure not to turn your ingredients to mush! Stir in the feta cheese then cover and chill for 2 to 6 hours.

            It just kills me how simple this is and it’s such a HUGE hit when I bring it to parties! It’s good for the vegetarians in your life as well! Bring a bag of tortilla chips and call it good! It’s simple, cheap, and fast! Just the kind of stuff I love to make!
