Street Tacos

I LOVE this simple street taco recipe. Tacos are ALWAYS a hit at my house and this version is a nice little change to the ordinary taco. There’s a marinade that is best if you can plan ahead and marinade the chicken overnight but you can make a quicker option, too, by just marinating for a few hours. The flavors blend so well and the ingredients are fresh and healthy! You can use your favorite tortilla or make your own from cauliflower tortillas to make them even healthier depending on your goals!

 

MARINADE:

4 Tablespoons fresh squeezed orange juice

2 Tablespoons apple cider vinegar

1½ Tablespoons lime juice

3 cloves garlic, minced

1½ Tablespoons chipotle chili powder

2 teaspoons dried oregano leaves

1 teaspoon salt

freshly ground black pepper

Kung Pao Chicken

I did it! I found another recipe that my whole family really likes. My daughter asked if I’d make some Kung Pao Chicken and since its one of my favorite dishes I was more than happy to oblige. I have made several Asian dishes but never this one. I searched for a great recipe on Pinterest and but apparently there are 1000 different Kung Pao Chicken recipes. I couldn’t find one that I really like so I came up with my own concoction. Shockingly, it worked! I think it would be good to try with additional veggies for more texture (I’m a huge texture fan) such as celery, pea pods, or even broccoli. You could also try cashews. I did keep out red chili peppers which is common in this dish because I needed to keep the heat out of this recipe for one my girls. This still has a little kick but it wasn’t too much, at least for my family. The best thing about this is that if you don’t have time to marinate the chicken for 30 minutes, it’ll still taste great....
