Lost week, our church started Prayer and Practice, or Church in the Dirt. We hold this ministry at the arena, and let the youth practice rodeo skills. We also crank up the concession stand (the Chuck Wagon) and serve a light evening snack. Last week it was pulled pork sandwiches and chips.
Because we don't have many folks pulling the Chuck Wagon, the crew got together and decided that "easy" was the key. I told them that this coming week, I'd come up with something that was fast and easy, and I'd cook it, but we still needed a couple of folks to help out in the food window.
Looking at the calendar, our next Prayer and Practice is May 5th, so I decided that street tacos would be fast, easy, and cheap. So, today I went to the grocer, bought some boneless chicken thighs, onions and peppers, and some tortillas, and tried it out to see how I could scale it up.
Some chicken, some onions and peppers, and wrap it in a flour tortilla. Add salsa if you like.
Belle says they are good, seasoned well (I used chipotle powder, garlic powder, salt and black pepper) but she told me that when she thinks of tacos, it's hard corn shells, ground beef, lettuce and cheese. She is right, those are what I call American tacos, but I'm taking it another direction. American tacos are fine, but these are street tacos.
