I like to cook, especially after a long weekend. It's relaxing & home cooking just tastes better. I dreamed up a medley of taquitos in a form of flautas. We just went shopping at the Wheatsville Co-op this weekend so we had plenty of grub. I actually do like this Wheatsville place; they have a good mix of fancy (organic) & not so fancy (canned jalapeños) foods & we also had a 10% off coupon. It's way better than Whole Foods because of the selection; at that place your choices are expensive & expensive.
Okay, back to my cookings...
I took out some of the organic chicken we bought & made it a la plancha stylez. I hooked it up with some lemon pepper seasoning, then added more pepper. Lately I've been into the whole slow cooking & it does turn out better. Next up was the camote aka sweet potato. I boiled some water, washed the sweet potato immensly, cut it up & threw it into the hot water. I let it cook for about 20 minutes for the softness factor. I strained the water out & added some butter, then used my bean smasher to smash the sweetness.
Ixchel grabbed some cilantro & serrano peppers from our garden & tan ta ra raaa! - chicken, sweet potato & cheese taquitos were done.
Of course, I thought they were great & so did Ixchel! By the way, did I mention that I couldn't tell the difference between organic chicken & the garden variety factory chicken?!?
