At the grill or belly up at the pool, whatever is in your future for this upcoming holiday, we wish you a lot of good eating all weekend long. So what is on your mind to cook in celebration of this festive and hot holiday? We decided to light our Sparklers “early” with some tasty Southwestern delights. So, not in the mood to light some fireworks yet? Might we break you in slowly with some Guacamole to wet the palate?
To start this delicious feast, cut up a few avocados, a quarter of a yellow sweet onion, stem and seed a jalapeno pepper of choice, throw in a bit of roughly chopped cilantro, a dash of hot salsa and a tomato or two and what do you have? A fantastic spin on guacamole. Oh but don’t stop there, add a tid bit of cumin, fresh tart lime and of course top it off with the one and only Slavo Salt for maximum amazingness. After you tease your tongue with the stylings of amazing flavor explosions…it’s time to thinly slice a few chicken breasts. Before you cook those, you best get your veg on. Take a poblano and slice it nice and long. Then, cut up the other half of that onion with a similar vain. Cook those in a bit of canola until they are nice and brown and set to the side. TIme to grab a margarita!! What have you been waiting for??
Get a pan nice and screaming hot, carefully drop the chicken in. While it begins to respond to the process at hand, grab that cumin and season your yard bird. Next, add in a bit of chili powder and finally some Slavo Salt will round out the trinity of simply heavenly flavor. Flip and brown the chicken. While that is going take your refried beans and some shredded monterrey jack cheese and heat through. We like to add some milk to the steamy bean and mix through. Set aside the guac, salsa, some arugula, shredded monterey and when the beans are done, put those there as well. Add in the veggies to the chicken near the end and get the flavors incorporated with the marriage of one half can of beer and just simmer away for extra juiciness!
Now it is time to cook your tortillas, throw a few in a hot pan and cook through. Time to refill the marg…
Drum roll…you are ready for an amazing meal that you will be jonesing for! Pile each tortilla with some of the beans, the chicken, guac, a few fingertips of arugula, monterey shred and don’t for get a little bit of lime to loop in all together. FIREWORKS in the MOUTH. You’ll thank us later. For now just remember folks, safety and salivating is no accident.
