chicken taquitos

Food ruts.

It’s a problem and it happening in kitchens all across america people.

No?  Is it just my kitchen?

Well that’s the pits.  I’m alway the odd man out.

I’m not ashamed. Sometimes you have so many kitchen failures you stop trying.

Sometimes you just go blank and make what you know.

Well it’s time to pick ourselves back up, shake it off and retry.

Derby Lessons!  Or maybe that’s from batman?  Either way it works in this here kitchen scenario.

I have so many recipes ripped out, pinned and bookmarked that I want to try I need to just get at it

So without further ado I give you Chicken Taquitos!

Tracy from Shutterbean made this in tiny form from Tiny Food Party.

I made these standard size, added some cream cheese and acting as a bizarro Emerald, took it down a notch.

I do not live underwater.

The Shutterbean household enjoys some spicier flavors than some of the residents here in Fidgetsville…Cough….Adam!

But you can make it however you like in your kitchen kingdom.

They are so tasty and not at all difficult to make.  Oh and a heads up, the avocado honey lime dip is swoon worthy.

You will want to put that on any carb you can find and you know what, you should.

roasted tomato soup

Fun Fact!

Did you know that until this here recipe for tomato soup I had only had it once before in all my 34 years?  Well it’s true and I really only had about 3.25 spoonfuls before I probably used some unsavory words and tossed the rest.  Ugh, it was horrible.

I guess I should rewind for a minute.  I don’t really know why I hadn’t tried before that unpleasant first experience.  I liked tomatoes, I liked tomato sauce and I liked ketchup.  True, maybe some (my mom) would say I was a tad fussy about certain things.  On Taco nights I wouldn’t eat the shell, salsa or cheese and the meat could not be too spicy.  I was served bland ground beef and shredded lettuce in a bowl for years.  I loved taco night!  Anyway, maybe my eating habits caused my mom to not bother with the hassle of figuring out what about tomato soup needed to change in order for her youngest child to eat some.

Lets fast forward to my first attempt.  I just started college.  I was living on my own in a new city.  You know how it is, everyone gets a little crazy in college. That’s how I ended picking up a can of tomato soup during my grocery shopping .  “I’m an adult now, I’m sure I’ll like it”.  Oh man, how foolish youth can be?  Well I headed back to the dorms, heated it up in the community kitchen and as I stated before, gagged, used some colorful language and wasted my precious money on a vile soup.  “Never again” I said!  Well maybe I didn’t say that but I’m sure I shook my fists in the air vowing revenge.  No? oh, well then I probably just went to the dining hall and stocked up on cereals that I could take back to my room.
