white corn tortillas

Black bean and corn quesadillas that I made with my mom! These were super good and I recommend using fresh corn for a better taste! Boil three ears of corn and then use a knife to carve off the kernels into the pot. Awesome dinner recipe.

For vegans just substitute with vegan cheese. :)

Grilled Chicken Tacos/Fajitas with Pineapple Salsa & Guacamole 

No real recipe here but here is everything that I used/did. Grilled some stir fry chicken strips (breast meat that is carved into small strips - I buy them already sliced from my local grocery store), seasoned with my own Mexican spice blend (will do another post on this). Grilled some thinly sliced sweet onion, bell & sweet peppers, and mushrooms. Pineapple salsa and guacamole recipes have been previously posted here and here. Wrapped everything together in a gluten free white corn tortilla and garnished with lime and fresh cilantro. 

Feel free to use any taco toppings you want. The possibilities are endless! (this would also be phenomenal with grilled steak or grilled shrimp - YUM)

Delicious is not even the right word.
