epic taco salad

mmm cheese
wednesday i had people over for a somewhat impromptu and very disorganized taco night.  the cookbook suggested "stir fried chicken tortilla rollups" but really i knew they meant ginormous chicken burritos.  basically the chicken part was sauteed red peppers and zucchini, pre-roasted and chopped chicken, and medium-hot salsa - let simmer while frantically chopping 14 other things and serve.  i forgot to mix up some taco seasoning [the premade kind is too salty] but it was surprisingly good without. 

leftovers never go to waste, so i made a taco salad for lunch.  ingredients from the top-down:
  • cheddar
  • corn salsa
  • medium tomato salsa
  • refried black beans [way better than pinto]
  • cous cous/orzo/quinoa salad with some chipotle seasoning
  • edamame
  • chicken

unfortunately we'd eaten all the tomato, avocado, and olives.  but all in all, probably the best lunch ive had since starting work.
