Feliz Navidad

We started decorating for the holiday's on Wednesday.

















We have a fake tree that seems to be missing with all my ornaments. I'm pretty sure it's at our storage unit. I'll just have to wait until next week to get it. In the meantime we have a few lights up to enjoy. 

For Dinner last night and tonight I went Mexican. Last night Chicken Fajitas and tonight Mexican Pizza. Both super easy and super tasty. Two of my favorite things.

Chicken Fajitas

chicken
onions
green pepper
shredded cheese
tortillas 
salsa 
sour cream

I baked the chicken earlier in the day. 
























Cooked onion and green bell peppers in some olive oil.


I Shredded the Chicken and added  it to the pan.



















For the Salsa I cut up one tomato, added some lime juice, onion, garlic clove, cumin, cilantro, salt and pepper.




















For dessert we had Taylor's new favorite cookies.






















Mexican Pizza

tortillas
ground beef
shredded cheese
enchilada sauce (recipe below)
taco seasoning (recipe below)
salsa
sour cream

I put the tortilla in the oven to become crisp.

















Cooked the ground beef in a pan. Seasoning it with taco seasoning.

Taco Seasoning

This is a healthier taco seasoning then the packaged seasoning you get at the store. I like making my own  because I get to control the amount of salt as well as I know what is in it.

2 tbsp Chili powder
1 1/2 tbsp Whole Wheat Flour
2 tsp Cumin
2 tsp Ground Oregano
1/2 tsp Garlic Powder
1/2 tsp Onion Powder
1/2 tsp Cayenne pepper
1/2 tsp Paprika 

Directions
Mix all ingredients together.
Store in an airtight container.


Enchilada Sauce


2 Cups No Salt Added Tomato Sauce (2 8 oz. cans)
2 Tbsp Taco Seasoning (above)
Sea Salt & Black Pepper to taste

Directions
Combine all ingredients in a sauce pan. Stir over med-low heat for 5 mins.


Building the pizza.

Add a couple tablespoons (or more if you want) of sauce onto a baked tortilla. Add some of the seasoned beef. Add the cheese.

Broil for a couple minutes.

Add Salsa and Sour Cream

















Other toppings you can use
olives
green, yellow, red peppers
avocado
chicken

What topping would you put on your pizza?
