No, I have not forgotten I have a blog. The culprit that's to blame for my prolonged absence is COLLEGE. That fiend has kept me away for far too long, but I finally decided to take a short break from all the hustle to share this awesome recipe with you. I ate this awesome chicken meal for about four days in a row over brown rice, and I really didn't mind at all. The Tabasco sauce really gave it awesome flavor, with practically no spiciness, believe it or not (although I wouldn't mind if it did!). And I've never been a fan of chickpeas, but in that pot they absorb all of the other flavors and transform into little bits of wonder. It is also a pretty healthy dish and fairly simple to make.
I agree with Sweet Brown. On to the recipe!
Those who know me well are aware of the fact that one of my favorite "food genres" is Tex-Mex. When I'm browsing through recipes in Pinterest and I see a combination of black beans, corn, peppers, onions and cheese, I usually cannot resist pinning the recipe. Those are some of my favorite ingredients and these taquitos have them all and more. Why should you make them? Here's four reasons:
I thought chicken parmesan couldn't be improved. Keep in mind that the words I'm about to say are reserved for only a few particular incidences and are usually very hard for me to utter, but this deserves them: I WAS WRONG. I have made my fair share of chicken parmesan recipes, but none can compare to this one. Upon tasting it my brother said it was better than any he's ever had in restaurants (he orders the dish everywhere) and my mom simply predicted that my marriage to whoever I marry was going to be a happy one. The homemade marinara sauce is so rich and tasty and the goat cheese gives it a delightful creaminess. The three-step breading process protects the chicken breast from drying out and makes for the juiciest chicken parmesan ever. Find an excuse to make this. It could be your second cousin's birthday, your 53rd date, your little sister's A in spanish class, or your turtle's quinceañero, whatever you want! Just make it. It is extraordinarily delicious!
