Have you ever wanted to broom everyone out of the house after some silly statement like, There’s nothing to do!” I’m about to talk about staying inside – but i wish the best of luck you finding peace and solitude. Here’s some of how i have fun.
I like end of month scramble for something days. as this is lately the chance to truly cook when it counts. when i’m broke and this is the only option.
there are no rules to what i buy as i just get what i want as i can afford it. like it’d be odd to see a stand and stuff taco shells box which is old elpaso brand when i can save 10 cents and get more in a store brand… however it’s far nice to help the less dexterous get themselves a meal. but put that to a store brand can of refried beans and a did i really buy dole brand lettuce, shame could have saved 13 cents after wasting 1.10 to get to a cheaper offering elsewhere! the tomatoes are nice in that a roma is about 3-4 people garnish of diced tomato and deuce cheap. the sour cream was fresh a which is ironic and the cheese oddly was on sale as the store brand cost more so they were pushing this premium product out. the rogue find of two chicken thighs i’d seperated and previously frozen were the chance to dance about in the cupboard… I added chili con carne the dark brown by now powder that is like a dollar at the walmarts was it i didn’t buy it but it isn’t yet tossable and a bottle of opatio hot sauce.
if you want a real recipe:
take the outter leaves off an icberg lettuce saving them for sandwiches. whack the core on a counter and pluck it out. use 1/3 to 1/1 of lettuce shaved as thinly as you’ve a knife to shred such to or the patience, i used a dollar store steak knife.
roma tomato, dice and dust with salt.
cheese, if you’re using shreeded cheese great, so am I otherwise chill cheese and run it not your knuckles over a box or hand held grating device 2 bucks at the dollare unless you get really lucky.
sour cream requires a spoon and you to take the silly freshness lid under the lid off.
I had some corn toastada shells but they were rancid as in open the bag and the oil used to fry them crispdidn’t smell like corn it was woofta smelling so they got the toss. this is why I made something chicken and beans with not toastadas but tacos? sorry, all i had left . warm shells in oven at 225 for 20 minutes preheated or you miss the luciousness of tacos. it’s one of those steps that if you’re not a deep fryer that you can still play to a yummy meal for all.
the chicken was coat bottom of pot with corn oil, fry add chilli powder after draining excess oil into handy coffee can of metal. thus low heat the powder will still stick and threater to blacken so chicken back in quickly and coat then deglaze pan with hot sauce. I used one heaping teaspoon of chili powder and 1/8 cup of not so hot hotsauce. the thighs were value pack `/4 pound sized thighs skin on and with bone 2 whole thighs. then water to cover plus an inch boil when boiled down an hour add more water and flip you can use another teaspoon of chili powder now as it can use a pepp up. adjust with hot sauce if desired by now it’s fairly stiff as stocks go some would complain it lacks this or that but I’m using this as pot liquor so I don’t fuss too much 😉
I pulled apart my chicken after cook and strained the cooking liquid using most to thin the beans with the chicken n ow in… after they cook or shall I say reheat these beans you’ve a bit of chili sauce left sour cream warm shells and a bean/chicken spread. this is garnished further with lettuce fancy shred cheese and tomato and
that’s how I have some fun. one spoon paper plates with holders! 50,40, 1.25, 1.75, 65, 1.99 0 dollars ish if i can correctly account for what was eaten and what’ll be waste or $3 a person 2 tacos. this icludes nothing for my time persay but that I’d layer out in a salaried way if I had to make a living cooking. but 😉 you’ll see all the actual time could easily be allotted if I made this as a assemble as ordered dinner but made ahead in bulk. but either way fatty boy food one taco could take out ordinary appetites. or 2 people of the ravenous teenager type would snack happily on 3 apiece.
