Meanwhile, cut the boneless, skinless chicken breasts into bite-sized pieces, and season with 1/2 packet (1.5 tablespoons) taco seasoning. Next, heat some olive oil in a very large skillet.

Growing up in Colorado, Mexican food has always been a favorite. Although it may not be as authentic as other places (i.e. Mexico), I love me some chimichangas, fajitas, enchiladas and tacos alike. And let's not forget my love for margaritas. So in honor of May 5th, or as my Spanish homies like to call it, Cinco de Mayo, I am giving you the best fish taco recipe ever!

It's super simple and packs a ton of flavor. Makes 4 servings of tacos 4 white fish filets (I use tilapia bc it's the best bang for your buck) 2 cups finely shredded red cabbage 2 cups finely shredded green cabbage 2 tomatillos, husked and quartered 1 jalapeno, seeded and quartered 1 avocado, pit removed and diced lime wedges and hot sauce, for serving Preheat the oven to 375 degrees.

The Best Fish Tacos EVER (even if you don’t like fish) About once a year, my husband and his dad go on a fishing trip for several days. It’s their thing. And every time they come back, they unload and clean their catch, and then they describe the trip, which always goes a little something like this: the food was really bad, we didn’t sleep much, the diesel fumes from the boat were so strong they gave us headaches, and we didn’t catch much.

Sign me up. And yet they keep doing, and they actually seem to like it! I guess it would kind of be like my describing a Goodwill trip with all five children to them. ANYhoo, despite the fact that the boat they go out on always seems to have a record catch on the trip before theirs and then one of those most pathetic catches ever on the actual trip Butch and Shaun go on, they boys always manage to come back with a pretty decent mess o’ fish. Problem is, I don’t like fish. Or so I thought until I had really, really fresh fish. They were AH-mazing. Have I sold you yet?

Okay, so here’s what you’ll do. Tortillas. Frugal Recipe: Chicken Tortilla Crockpot Soup. If you’re anything like me, you have a case of the “Martha Envies” for the folks out there with well stocked Williams Sonoma type kitchens and the patience, ability and talent to make magazine worthy entrees. Sadly though, envy is far as it goes. If fiancé isn’t doing the cooking, chances are it needs to be stupid frugal, quick and easy otherwise it doesn’t end well for anyone.

This, specifically is why I LOVE Crock Pot recipes. They’re affordable and you throw everything in one pot to cook while you’re out and about or doing something funner than cooking and call it done. I’m still annoyed at my lack of food photography skills. Ingredients: 2 cans chicken or veggie broth/bullion cubes 1 can black beans (or pinto)* 1 can diced tomatoes 1 can corn (I use frozen corn) 1 onion, diced 2 cloves chopped garlic (canned garlic works fine!)

Weight Watchers Points: 4 per serving Try topping it with our tasty Pico de Gallo! Five Days... 5 Ways: Try-it Tuesday: Simple Homemade Guacamole. First of all, thank you all for your kind comments on my first ever vlog from yesterday’s Move-it Monday! It’s really fun to see people that get my oddball sense of humor. (And, yes, every bit of that was intended to be funny…even the part about squatting being a useful life skill for camping, which produced…crickets). It was also kind of funny to hear a couple of your reactions to how I sounded and came across. Alina, one of my BFFs (Blogger Friends Forever), told me that my voice was lower than she expected, which threw her for a loop because it made me sound intimidating.

(Just remember that when I ask you next week whether you tackled our squat challenge : )) So, what about you guys? Was I anything like you expected from reading? And for those of you that were worried that I was being too hard on myself with all of my “blogger fail” exclamations and talking about wanting to send myself hate mail, please understand that mildly sarcastic, self-deprecating humor is my “bit,” if you will.
