I started this blog so my daughters could find all of our family favourite recipes in one place. It has actually grown into more than just the family favourites but also other recipes we've tried out in our kitchen. I don't like to fill up the post with alot of chatter. Sometimes there's a little story to tell, but usually I like to get right to the point. So this is for them, but hope you find some recipes that you like as well. I'll be sharing a lot of recipes, and along the way you'll find some crafty things and maybe some helpful hints too!

Doritos Chicken Taco Salad

"Mom, this is really good!"

I heard this 4 times during dinner!

When you make it, see how many times you hear it.

2 tbsps olive oil

2 boneless chicken breasts, cubed
1 tbsp taco seasoning

4 cups romaine lettuce

1 or 2 fresh tomatoes, diced
kernels from 2 cobs of corn (approx 1  1/2 cups)
1 cup black beans
1/2 cucumber, sliced
1 avocado, diced
1 cup monterey jack cheese, shredded

1/4 cup mayonnaise

1/4 cup tzatziki sauce (a little TexMex/ Greek fusion going on here)
2 tbsps lime juice
1/2 tsp sugar
1/2 tsp salt
1/2 tsp cumin

Handful of crushed Doritos (I used zesty cheese)

Toss the cubed chicken in a plastic bag with the taco seasoning. Heat the olive oil in a frying pan and cook the chicken. It'll take about 5 minutes.

Assemble by putting the torn romaine on a large platter.
Cut the corn from the cobs.

Then distribute the rest of the goodies on top of the lettuce.
Garnish with some cherry tomatoes.

Mix the dressing together and serve on the side.
Don't forget to count how many times you hear
"this is really good!"
