Chicken Tacos with Super Spicy Tomatillo Sauce

6b9130fa-2d01-43c3-9802-2c0034bb28c4_zps57dae7bc

Yum! Like oh my goodness yum.

Me and my fiance were both sweating when we finished eating them from the tomatillo sauce.

First off, some of you may not know what a tomatillo is. Its kind of like a green tomato in a husk. Like an ear of corn and a tomato had a baby. Its a staple in Latin American cooking and is quite delicious. You peel the husk off and just eat the fruit inside. You may have to look in the ethnic foods section of your grocery store or a specialty store to find them. If your paying attention though, they are readily available.

Tomatillo Sauce

2 lbs. Fresh tomatillos
4 Cloves of garlic
1 Bunch of fresh cilantro
1/4 of a large onion (or 1/2 a small onion)
3 Cups of water
4 large Jalapeno peppers

20130803_170541_zps89232d19

Remove the outer paper from the tomatillos and wash them off. Cut everything except the cilantro into large chunks. I cut the tomatillos in half, the peppers in thirds and roughly chopped the onion. Put them all in the water and bring to a boil.

Look how deliciously fresh this looks!!

Look how deliciously fresh this looks!!

Turn it down to just below a boil and cook for half an hour. Let it cool until its manageable, add in the cilantro and blend it until its smooth. This sauce is super spicy and goes on ANYTHING! Use it as a healthy substitute for classic taco sauce, use it on chicken, beef, pork, in carnitas, on enchiladas, on pretty much anything you’d like to be spicy. Its honestly the most amazing sauce ever. Plus you can eat it hot or cold.

Beautiful green sauce!

Beautiful green sauce!

Chicken Tacos

2 Boneless chicken breasts from free range chickens
1/4 of a large onion (or half a small onion)
3 Garlic cloves, chopped
1/2 Jalapeno pepper, chopped
3 Tsp. ground cumin
1 Shredded carrot
The juice from 1 lime
4 Tsp. dried cilantro or half a bunch fresh cilantro
Salt and pepper
2 Tbsp. Coconut oil (to cooking in)

(Note, use organic ingredients for the best result!)
(Another note, either grate the carrots or use a vegetable peeler and peel the whole carrot into long thin strips and chop the strips so you don’t have big chunks of carrot.)

Start out by chopping up the chicken breasts into small cubes and put them in a pot in the coconut oil, jalapeno and onions. Start cooking on medium high heat.

As its cooking add in all of the other ingredients. Continue cooking until the chicken is fully cooked and all the juice is cooked off. When the chicken is mostly cooked through start chopping it up with the spoon your cooking with. It chops easy when its cooked. And that’s it! Top with tomatillo sauce, cheese and lots of greens. I personally think arugula and spinach taste the best with tacos.

Serve it with a delicious…

…Mason jar lemon-limade slushy

20130803_181533_zps4713df5f

Put the juice of one lime and one lemon in a mason jar and add 1 tablespoon of organic sugar. Add two slices of lemon and fill it the rest of the way with water. Put the lid on it and shake it vigorously until the sugar is dissolved and pop it in the freezer for 3-5 hours, or until it starts to freeze. It’ll turn itself into a slush.

Super amazing dinner =)

Enjoy!

Garlic, Greens and Sprout Pizza with Rosemary Crust

Mmmm, doesn’t the name just sound delicious??

8c57a992-4eed-489a-8d1b-c6c347a1361d_zps7a227c8a

I think it speaks for itself, so I’m gonna skip all the flamboyant adjectives on how yummy it is and go right to the recipe.

Garlic, Greens and Sprout Pizza with Rosemary Crust

For the crust you will need:

2 1/4 teaspoons yeast

1 teaspoon organic coconut palm sugar (Buy here)

1 cup of warm water

2 1/2 cups of organic unbleached flour (Buy here)

2 tablespoons quality organic olive oil  (Buy here)

1 teaspoon Celtic sea salt (Buy here)

2(+/-) tablespoons of dried organic rosemary (Buy here)
(The amount of rosemary you add is based on how much you like or dislike rosemary, some people really like the flavor, like me, and others only kind of like the flavor. Its very distinct, but definitely complements this pizza!)

4 tablespoons of garlic infused olive oil
(Put 4 tablespoons of olive oil and a few cloves of roughly chopped garlic in a bowl and let it rest for a few hours before you start cooking)

Non-GMO cornmeal

Coconut oil

Preheat your oven to 425 degrees. Dissolve the yeast with the sugar in warm water and let it rest for 10 minutes. Then, stir in the flour, salt and oil and let it rest for another 5 minutes. Split into 2 equal parts. Grease your cast iron skillet with coconut oil and sprinkle some cornmeal on top to keep it from sticking.

Press the dough into the bottom of the skillet and make sure it fills the whole skillet and has started a little up the edges. Poke holes in the crust (not all the way through, just superficial holes) with a fork, brush half of the garlic olive oil on it and place it in the oven for 5-7 minutes or until it has started to cook on the outside. Pull it out and add the toppings.

For the toppings you will need:

Cheese

Precooked, organic, pastured chicken in small pieces/shreds

Uncooked alfalfa sprouts (or any sprouts you like)

Freshly cooked organic greens
(I used purple kohlrabi greens, but you can use anything you like, I also really like spinach and stinging nettle!)
(* Side note I put mine in a skillet with some coconut oil and cook them until they are totally wilted. Kohlrabi greens cooked like that with a little sea salt on top are DELICIOUS! They make a great nutritious snack*)

Mmmm, toppings!!

Mmmm, toppings!!

Spread a generous amount of cheese, greens, sprouts and chicken on top and return to the oven. Cook for another 10-12 minutes, or until the cheese is melted and the crust is cooked through. Repeat with the remaining dough and toppings. This recipes makes 2 8” pizzas and serves 2 people. I like to put a little crushed red pepper and oregano on mine when I eat it.

Garlic Lemon Roasted Asparagus

678pnp5gzt6yqsw677i3vjqrtioxe0rx

       For this you will need:

1 bunch of fresh organic asparagus

4 cloves of organic garlic

2 tbsp. organic lemon juice

4 tbsp. coconut oil

Put the oil and garlic in a cast iron skillet and cook until the garlic is nice and brown. Then add in the lemon juice and mix it thoroughly. Once its mixed add in the asparagus, cut into thirds. I like to cook mine for 3 or 4 minutes. But you can cook it as short or as long as you like. It all depends on how crunchy/mushy you want it to be.

And that’s it! Super easy, delicious side dish!

I’m just over here ogling the Swiss Chard…

Its Friday!! That means one of my favorite local farmers markets was open today. Me and my mom went down to look at their vegetables. I had to force myself to leave before I dipped into our rent money to buy veggies and mushrooms. I finally settled on some beautiful Swiss Chard (one of the prettiest leafy veggies out there, ranging from white stems to hot pink, bright red, and bright yellow) some organic Beech mushrooms, and a mix of white, purple/blue and red potatoes. All home grown in my county. Mmmmmmmm…… So good. I can’t wait to have me some salad and colorful potato soup =) Later this week when I make my soup I’ll share my super easy recipe.

I got all of this for $9.00. One of the absolute best places to get fresh in season fruits, veggies and home made bread is your local farmers market. I know this is stressed everywhere you look, but such a surprising amount of people just don’t go or don’t buy there. Its much, much cheaper then the grocery store 90% of the time, everything is fresh and most is local. I didn’t need very much this time because my fridge is too full of veggies

<and even veggies can be over eaten>

but the selection of wonderful things there is fantastic.

Enjoy some healthy food porn =)
