Chicken Tortillas

Welcome to The Freshman Cook! Today I am joining a group of blogger friends to celebrate our Favorite Chicken Recipes, and I want to share mine with you also. 

Most people who love chicken, have a favorite chicken meal. It may be fried chicken, or maybe chicken and rice, or your favorite just might be my favorite, Chicken Tortillas! 

No matter what your favorite chicken dish is, chicken is delicious, easy to prepare, very versatile, perfect for a fancy meal or a weeknight dinner, and loved by almost everyone. 


Chicken Tortillas
(makes 2 full tortillas)
(printable recipe at end of page)


Ingredients:
1-1.5 pound fresh raw Chicken 
SW Chipotle Seasoning
2 Cobs of Corn
1 tbl. Jalapeno Pepper
Butter
2-3 tablespoon White Onion
Salt and Pepper
2 tablespoon Roma Tomato
1 slice White Onion
2 flour Tortillas
Sour Cream
Avocado



Heat your grill to 350 degrees, or medium high. Cut the chicken breast into pieces as shown.  Sprinkle them with Southwest Chipotle seasoning. I use it because it tastes great, and you can sprinkle as shown above. It has a little bite, but it is not overwhelming or too hot. It is also salt free!

Once the grill is ready, place the chicken, the pepper and the corn on the grill. Rub the corn with butter, and then lightly sprinkle the chipotle seasoning onto the corn. 

Keep turning the pepper over as it chars the outside of the pepper. Once the chicken is finished cooking, let it sit, off of the heat for 5 minutes. Slice the chicken before serving.

Cut the corn kernels from the cob. Set the kernels aside in a medium bowl.

Split the jalapeno down the center. Remove the seeds.

Remove the outer skin, and throw it away. Now you are left with the beautiful and tasty inside of the pepper.


Slice 3 slices of onion and chop them into small pieces. Chop the tomato the same way.

Mix all the ingredients together in a bowl. Add salt or pepper, if desired. Refrigerate until ready to eat.

 
Take another slice of white onion, cut into small pieces, and cook until a little brown.

Place tortillas on grill until warmed and slightly browned.

Add sour cream and avocado slices for a fantastic meal! Slice the chicken, roll up a tortilla and enjoy your Chicken Tortillas!

Southwest 7 Layer Salad / Recipes From Our Dinner Table

If you have read any of the recipes on my blog, you already know that I am quite fond of southwestern food. Well, actually, I am crazy for it! I love all the flavors that meld together to tickle your tongue and deliver an amazing taste sensation. So, when I heard that we were creating layers of salad for today's theme, I thought Southwestern Salad, and I was in! 

I used large glasses. I wasn't sure if they would be easy to eat from, but they work perfectly. They are easy to use for a catering or a backyard party! Also, it is just a fun way to serve, and everyone gets their own glass.

This recipe is easy to put together. I started by cooking the chicken the day before I wanted to serve the salad. However, I waited until the day I wanted to serve them to put it all together .This salad is served cold, which makes things easier. These would be great for any informal or formal get together or party! 


Southwest 7 Layer Salad

(makes 2 salads)

(printable recipe at end of page)


1-8 ounce raw Chicken Breast

Southwest Chipotle Seasoning Blend

1 Corn on the Cob, husked

1/2 tbl soft Butter

1 bag Chopped Romaine Mix

4 tablespoons Black Beans, drained

2 slices Red Onion

6 tablespoon Salsa

4 scoops Sour Cream

1-2 tablespoons shredded 4 cheese Mexican Blend

1/2 of an Avocado, cut into chunks

crushed tortilla chips




Filet the chicken breast, then sprinkle the chicken with SW Chipotle Seasoning Blend. Grill until the chicken is done, turning it to insure the center of the chicken is fully cooked. Because you fileted the chicken, it will cook quicker than a thicker piece. Grill both sides, and remove them from the grill when they are done.

 

Roll the corn on the cob with the softened butter, then sprinkle the corn with more of the SW Chipotle Seasoning Blend. Place the corn on the grill. Cook for 5-10 minutes, turning the corn when needed, on a medium high grill, or until you achieve a color on the corn that you are happy with.



Cut the corn from the cob with a sharp knife. 



Start filling the glasses, starting with the lettuce, then add the 2 tbl. of black beans on top of the lettuce. Add 3 tbl. of the cut corn for the next layer, followed by the red onion. Cut 2 slices of red onion and then chop each slice into small pieces, like in the picture. 


Add 3 tablespoons of salsa to each glass, on top of the red onion.


Chop the chicken into small pieces. Add them to the glasses, on top of the red onion. Next, add 2  tablespoons  of sour cream to each glass. 


Sprinkle the sour cream with the shredded cheese, and top off your salad with the avocado chunks. Cover and refrigerate until you are ready to serve. 

*A little note ~If you are not planning on serving the salad for a few hours, don't add the avocado at this time. Chop it and add it right before serving for a much fresher looking salad.


Sprinkle the crushed tortilla chips on the top of the avocado chunks. Enjoy your Southwest 7 Layer Salad!

Thank you for stopping by today! I hope you will try this fun and tasty Southwest 7 Layer Salad!

Southwestern Salsa /#SundaySupper

We are talking about saving the summer harvest with different types of  home canning today for #SundaySupper. Do you can?  Have you water bath canned? This was my third time canning, and I have to tell you that canning is satisfying, rewarding and fun. I made a Southwestern Salsa, and I love knowing that I now have some jars of my favorite appetizer in the fridge ready and waiting for me.

Freedom Nachos!

Today is Day 10 of our 15 Days of Red, White and Blue and we are celebrating day 10, Friday, summer, and anything else you want to "woo~hoo" about with one of my favorite things to munch on~Nachos! I even went a little upscale with this dish, adding some additional ingredients I think you will be happy to see and taste!

Freedom Nachos
Red, White, and Blue Nacho Chips
Muenster Cheese
          Salsa(recipe)
         Cowboy Beans(recipe)
Avocado
Sour Cream
Filet Mignon Chunks
Sauteed Red and Green Peppers with Onions

Make your beans first. They take a while to make.
You will want to start the day before you need them.
But they are so worth it. Delicious!
Just follow the link to the recipe above.
The same goes for the salsa. 
I didn't take any pictures of it, but you might want to
make it the day before also.
I bought a nice piece of filet. Because it was so big,
the remainder can be used for another meal, making it a much 
better price! I sliced some very thin pieces of beef,
and then chopped them to small chunks.
Cook the beef in a small frying pan.
Saute your peppers and onions at the same time.
Now lets put everything together!
Cover the nachos with the muenster cheese and microwave to melt it.
Place beans, beef, avocado, sauteed veggies and sour cream
in separate bowls for easy access for everyone.
Set out spoons and forks for easy serving, and dig in!
Happy 4th of July!

Thanks for joining me today.

I hope you stop by tomorrow for Day 11 of
15 Days of Red, White and Blue!!

Ghostly Hollows Dip

This dip is a fantastic way to kick off your Halloween Dinner Party, bring to an office celebration, a pot luck,  or add to the party buffet. It's full of everything everyone loves; salsa, cream cheese, guacamole and ghost chips!
Ghostly Hollows Dip 

To make ghost chips:
20 Flour Tortillas
3/4 teaspoon Garlic Powder
3/4 teaspoon Ground Coriander
3/4 teaspoon Paprika
1/4 teaspoon Ground Black Pepper
Ghost Cookie Cutter

To make Salsa:
4 Roma Tomatoes
1/2 Large Onion
1 Serrano Pepper
1 teaspoon Garlic Powder
1 teaspoon Fresh Cilantro
Dash Salt

To make guacamole:
 2 Avocados
1 Small Tomato
1/4 cup Onion
Dash Lemon Juice
1/4 teaspoon Garlic Powder

You also need:
8 ounces Cream Cheese~softened
2-3 tablespoons Sour Cream

To make the ghost chips, cut out the chips with your
cookie cutter. I got 4 ghosts out of every tortilla.
  Keep the scraps and bake them to use in tortilla
soup or in another recipe.
Place the ghosts on a cookie sheet covered with parchment
paper. You could also spray the sheet with pan spray
instead of using the parchment. Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
In a small bowl, mix together the garlic powder,
ground coriander, paprika, and pepper.
Lightly spray the tortillas with pan spray.
Sprinkle the ghosts with the dry mix. I sprinkled half with
the dry mix and half with garlic powder only.
Both taste great!
Bake for 5-8 minutes or until just a little brown on the edges.
Let's make Salsa!
Cut the 4 roma tomatoes in half.
Cut the halves in quarters.
Chop the quarters into bite size pieces.
Put the chopped tomatoes in a bowl, and cut the
ends off of the onion.
Peel the onion, and cut the onion in half. Take the half
and cut 3-4 slices from it.
Chop the slices into bite size pieces.
Chop the top and bottom off of the serrano chili.
Wear gloves if possible, and be careful of inhaling the
aroma of the pepper. It is extremely strong, and it can
make you cough, and feel as if it is in your throat. You
also should be careful to not get any pepper
juice on your skin. It itches!!
Cut it down the middle.
Wash the peppers under cold water. This is where you
need to be careful of the aroma. While you hold the
pepper under cold water scrape the seeds and the
insides until the inside of the seed is bare.
It should look like this. Slice each piece down
the length of it.
Chop each piece into very small pieces.
Cut about 7 leaves of cilantro. Roll them together
and chop into very small pieces.
Now, our guacamole!
I didn't take a lot of pics for this, but it is pretty
much what we did for the salsa.
Peel 2 avocados.
Place in bowl.
Smash them down with a fork.
Chop your small tomato, and put it in with the avocado.
Chop your onion, like we did when we made salsa.
Add it to the tomatoes and avocados.
Add the lemon juice and garlic powder.
Mix or smash together.
Add the cream cheese to the salsa.
It should be soft to mix easy.
Place the salsa cream cheese mix in a pie plate.
Level it across the top.
Add the guacamole on top of the salsa.
Add a circle of sour cream.
I wish I would have made the sour cream in the shape
of a tombstone. It would have looked
great with ...
the dancing ghosts!!
(Scary music here!)
Enjoy!
