Dear are still running a fever and your throat is really sore.....

We both took a nap Thursday afternoon which was nice. Then you wanted me to try a new recipe from your Rachel Ray cookbook. Of course this would be just for ME to eat...not you would not even think of eating it. BUT we decided on making this:

Spicy Chicken Tacos...

and I do admit they were very good although I did change the recipe a bit. Here is the recipe:

1 Tablespoon extra virgin olive oil (once around the pan)
1-1/2 pounds boneless skinless chicken breasts cut into very small cubes
1 small onion chopped
1 clove garlic minced
1 cup tomato puree
2 teaspoons chili powder
1 teaspoon ground cumin (I left this out)
handful of coarsely chopped Spanish olives with pimentos (I did not use so many)
a handful of golden raisins (I also left this out)
coarse salt to taste
8 jumbo corn taco shells or flour tortillas for soft tacos

Shredded cheeses, onions tomatoes, lettuce, avocadoes

Heat a big skillet over medium heat, add olive oil and chicken and cook till chicken is brown. Add onion and garlic and cook till onion is soft. Add tomato puree, and spices and olives. (raisins too if you are adding them). Bring to bubble and reduce heat to keep warm till ready to serve.

Toast/warm taco shells according to package instructions.

Scoop filling into shells or tortillas and top with your favorite toppings.

AS Rachel would say.....YUM-O!!!

Hi Noah and Mom...

The tacos look delicious. In fact, we took our granddaughter out for her 20th Birthday, and had mexican food. Shrimp casadillas...

Hope your fever breaks soon, and you are up and playing your favorite games.

Now that looks delicious to me. I like Soft Tacos and several other items that Taco Bell offer, but since ours is in with KFC, their menu is limited compared to a regular Taco Bell Restaurant.

Get to feeling better soon. Love you
