I made the Grilled Corn Guacamole and Fried Chicken Tacos tonight for dinner and they were both scrumptious. I just used frozen corn and roasted it up in the frying pan in a little olive oil. I omitted the jalapeno’s because I didn’t have any but it was still very tasty and went well with the tacos.
The fried tacos were very straight forward and easy enough to make. Something a little different from the ground beef filling tacos but very tasty. Hope you all get a chance to make both of these recipes.
Fried Chicken Tacos
I made both of these recipes last week when my husbands parents were in town and we all really liked both of them. The quiche was easy enough to make. I made a pie crust (just my own recipe), used the Costco already cooked bacon and substituted half and half for the heavy cream. The one thing that would have helped out in the recipe directions is PW says to “salt and pepper to taste” – not tasting a mix of raw eggs and cream! I think approximate amounts would have been more appropriate. I just sprinkled some in and it tasted just fine. I would definitely make this recipe again.
The Bananas Foster was really yum as well and very easy to make. I omitted the rum and the whole flame thing and it turned out just fine. We spooned it over some vanilla ice cream – heavenly. I think it would taste really good with peaches as well.

Last night I finally was able to make the French Onion Soup and Panini – kept forgetting to buy the crusty French bread. I liked both recipes but I have to say my husband did NOT.
First, the French Onion Soup - I thought it had a really good flavor and I loved the bite of the toasted bread and Swiss cheese with each spoonful along with the onions. Yum! I followed the recipe (only made 1/3 of the recipe) as directed and it was easy enough. I did start early enough to roast the onions in the oven but it would work even if you didn’t. Final product = tasty.
Next the Chicken Apricot Panini. I bought my chicken breasts already cut thin (cutlets) and omitted the sage leaves. I sauteed my red onions because I prefer them cooked over raw in a sandwich or burger. The sauce was tasty as well. I don’t have a Panini press so I just put a heavy Pyrex glass on top of the sandwich as it cooked in the pan. The one thing I would do differently if I made this recipe again is marinate the chicken. I did put salt and pepper on it and it was thin and tender enough but it just didn’t have a whole lot of flavor in my opinion. The bread and sauce was good though and maybe the sage would have helped. I thought the soup and sandwich made for a good meal. I would like to try the grilled vegetable Panini soon.
