everything to say

grateful for tacos

a twist on cage:

i have everything to say, and i am not saying it.

today was trying for a lot of petty, tiresome reasons.

i have too many big thoughts and grandiose schemes, and the minutia of the day can be so wearing.

i attempted to take this as a chance to practice patience and gratitude this day.

a chance to narrow my thoughts to the moments right in front of me rather than some far-flung imaginary time.

and to realize:  how bad can a day be with chipotle chicken tacos for dinner?

so look for a large and detailed post sometime soon.

and do make these tacos, asap:

1 whole roast chicken, meat removed and shredded
3 T olive oil
2 medium onions, thinly sliced
2 red peppers, thinly sliced
1 can chipotle chiles in adobo sauce, roughly chopped
1 head garlic, minced
1 T cumin
1 T chili powder
1 T dried oregano
S & P to taste

soften vegetables and chipotle chiles in olive oil over medium heat for about 10 minutes, until they begin to get a little brown and caramelized.

add spices, chicken, S&P, and a little water to moisten.  maybe 1/2 c.  cook another twenty minutes or so until the the ingredients are well integrated.  adjust seasoning.

serve with warm corn tortillas, crumbled queso fresco, cilantro, scallions, limes, and lime-cumin sour cream.
