We love Mexican food in our house. Well, I should say Jay and I love Mexican food, the boys are learning to like it. I've been able to get the boys to eat chicken tacos. That was a huge victory. So a few weeks ago, I made tacos but then had left over guacamole, shredded lettuce, and salsa.
For most meals, Jay and I will eat leftovers, but I ran out of the taco meat. What did I do?? I defrosted a chicken breast and made a fiesta chicken sandwich. Yummy!
ingredients (makes 2 sandwiches)
2 kaiser rolls
1 6 oz chicken breast
2 to 3 tbsp. guacamole
2 to 3 tbsp. salsa
1/4 c. shredded Monterrey jack cheese
Simply butterfly the chicken breast and sprinkle with salt and pepper (I add a little sprinkle of cumin too). In a non-stick skillet, cook the chicken until no longer pink (about 8 to 10 minutes). Divide the cheese over the chicken and allow to melt.
Then the rest is just assembly. I split and toasted the rolls. Finally just pile up your favorite taco toppings. I used guacamole, salsa, and shredded lettuce.
It's a fabulous and quick way to use up leftover ingredients from Mexican night!
