Paul’s Not-Street Tacos

I kidded my husband about these. He said he was making “street tacos” for dinner the other night, but in reality they weren’t really street tacos because  they had black refried beans, gaucamole, and Cotijo cheese in them instead of just cilantro and onion. HOWEVER, they were very delicious all the same. I probably gave him too much of a hard time since he’s been cooking for the past two weeks while I have been putting in a lot of hours on a very demanding project at my work. That being said, I have had no time to pull the recipe from him for this, so instead will just let you enjoy the photos and let your imagination figure it out this time. The steak meat was delicious and tender, his homemade guacamole was fantastic, and his refried black beans had bacon in them! Perhaps I will have a chance to post the recipe at a later date (but don’t hold me to that!)

Speaking of a later date, I’ll be wrapping up my part of the project late Friday, and Saturday we (meaning ME!) will be taking a much-needed break and heading to fish and crab and read books and relax for a week on the river at the coast. So I will “see” you on the flip side. Enjoy your Labor Day Weekend next week!

Happy 4th of July! If you are planning on grilling over this festive holiday week, why not include some yummy chicken tacos in the line-up? We’ve had some record-breaking sizzling heat here in Central Oregon, and grilling has been the standard.

I whipped up a small batch of Chicken Fajitas the other night, recipe here: Chicken Fajita Marinade. After a quick 10 minutes on the grill, we sliced up the meat, and added black beans, onions, avocado, Cotijo cheese, and cilantro on flour tortillas and chowed on dinner in no time.

We are once again off to our RV property for the rest of the week, where it will be a pleasant 70 degrees. I hope you all have a safe and enjoyable holiday week!
