Mexican Tortillas from Coop@home

Mexican Tortillas recipe from Coop@home is a mild main course, perfect for a quick dinner after work on the terrace. I discovered it whilst searching the Coop@home recipe vault for a dinner recipe that would showcase my lovely Spainish Paprika, a souvineer from a recent trip to Barcelona. I discovered Mexican Tortillas and decided I couldn’t go wrong.

I purchased the ingredients at Coop@home using their easy shopping list. I had never even seen the dried fried onions before at the store, so this was a new surprise for me.

The grilled onions were delicious and I am eager to work them into more recipes. The recipe calls for mixing the spices using a mortar and pestle and then rubbing the blend on chicken breast. Once the meat is ready, simply pan sauté it for about 5 minutes on each side in about a tablespoon of olive oil. Once finished the lions share of the work is done. Remove the chicken breast and set aside to let them rest.

While the meat cooked I was busy slicing onions, tomatoes, some bell pepper (I had it and decided to add it to the recipe) and sliced some corn off the cob that was left over from yesterdays meal. I added another tablespoon of olive oil the the same pan I cooked the chicken in and tossed in the onions to sizzle for a few minutes before adding the rest of the ingredient. I immediately turned down the heat to 4 on my stove top and put a lid on the pan while I prepared to warm the tortillas and spread them generously with sour cream.

I chopped some cilantro, and sliced some avocado (a must for me with mexican food). I also opened a can of black beans. Yes, you read that right- canned black beans from COOP!!! The Coop near me has started to stock canned black beans- a delicious and healthy side dish for our chicken tortillas. Now too assemble: take the tortilla smeared with sour cream and layer warmed veggies and sliced chicken. Sprinkle on cilantro, and if you are like me, a little avocado, a squeeze of lime and some black beans.
