Cinco de Mayo Sabor

Happy Cinco de Mayo! I cooked up some inspired grub tonight: a sweet potatoes/black beans/corn veggie mix with some delish organic chicken taquitos.

Seriously, at 270 calories for per pair, they are reasonably healthy and taste just scrumptious. Really, I can’t sound more like a commercial for PJ’s and you can grab them at Newflower Market here in East Dallas. Gluten free, to boot! (Recipe below.)


The charming embroidered tea towel was a present from boyfriend’s mother. It’s so sweet and lady-like.

Cinco de Mayo Sabor
Veggie Mix
1 or 2 small sweet potatoes, cut in cubes
1 can black beans
1 package of frozen corn
Half an onion, diced
Pressed garlic
1 Red bell pepper, cut in strips
Garlic powder, chipotle peppers, cilantro, cumin, red pepper flakes, salt, pepper to taste
Extra virgin olive oil
PJ’s Organic Chicken Taquitos
Avocado, sour cream are optional
…………………………………………………………………………………………………………

Boil sweet potatoes, until almost cooked through. Drain and chop. Preheat oven and drop in the taquitos to bake, following the instructions. Heat pan, while mixing extra virgin olive oil and spices together. Combine all veggies with oil mixture, cooking on medium-high until potatoes are creamy in texture. Slice avocado, add leftover pressed garlic, cilantro and lemon to taste. Make a gorgeous plate and feast!
