Red onion; hand-crumbled cotija cheese mixed with cayenne pepper powder; chopped up cilantro
The whole spread – flour tortillas, quickly warmed in a dry skillet; giant “choles” I think, mixed with onion, lemon, cilantro, etc. as a relish; bowl of chicken cut up; mayo – please ignore my messy table with my random other items, haha
A couple of boneless/skinless chicken thighs that I quickly cooked in a pan with salt, pepper, red pepper flakes, then sliced up.
On the left, you can sort of see it – boiled fresh corn on the cob, slicked with a little bit of mayo, then topped with the cotija/cayenne pepper mixture; I later also added a bit of cilantro 😉
My first taco – chicken, cotija, relish, onions, cilantro, rolled up…
I made all this on a weeknight, when I’d invited BF over for dinner and a movie. I don’t remember what we watched – it must not have been that memorable – but dinner was delicious. BF was a bit wary of everything but happily ate it… And, I’m happy to say, has been opening his mind to eating and trying more and more different things… but that’s a story for another time, I suppose.
No recipes because everything was too easy to make – I already described the process above – but if you want really specific instructions, just ask, and I’ll post it in the comments. (I don’t have more details for the relish because that was a restaurant leftover that I spruced up a bit.)
