Life always offers you second chance. It’s called tomorrow.
It’s Doug Week! A week dedicated to celebrating my adopted pug’s quirky tendencies. I mentioned yesterday how he is attached to my side, at all times. This means that while my other pug is enjoying the beautiful outdoors, Doug in inside. He literally hates being outside unless I am out there with him.
What kind of dog does not like being outside? I told my husband that I think he lived in the wild before we adopted him, but he thinks that is ludicrous. I don’t know. He does always manage to find empty mayonnaise bottles to feed off of.
Doug, get out of the recycling bin!!!
The only time he enjoys being outside is in our company, especially when we are gardening or throwing him the Frisbee, obviously.
Which is straight where I went to get started with dinner, cutting off some fresh lettuce.
Nothing taste better than fresh produce, which I used to make…
Fiesta Chicken Taco Salad
1 large chicken breast
1 green pepper
1 red onion
1 Tablespoon olive oil
2 taco salad shells
1 cup brown rice
1 cup cilantro, chopped
½ lime, juiced
1 cup Mexican Cheese Dip
2 cups Romaine lettuce, shredded
1 cup pineapple, cubed
1. Brown onions and peppers in oil over medium heat.
2. Cook chicken. Stir in ½ cup cilantro and lime juice.
3. Stir remaining cilantro into rice and fill taco shells.
4. Top rice with lettuce, onion and pepper mix, and chicken.
5. Drizzle cheese on top.
6. Garnish with pineapple and enjoy!
There is something about the pineapple on top that makes this salad out of this world! Combined with the melted cheese and chicken, it is simple perfect.
Be prepared to eat every bite because there is no going back after you taste how delicious it is.
Knowing that I grew the lettuce, made this salad even better.
