I love to cook healthy meals for my family and I’m very lucky to have on hand local grow products that I’m sure are fill with amazing benefits. We think that having a delicious and well balance family meal is a great way to bond during dinner.
I love to cook and share with my daughters my recipes and those that are passed on from my grandmother, and I remember how special it was to be with her and having a family meal every night.
Now we are making a new kind of comfort food and thanks to our friends at the Foster Farm Simple Raise Chicken, and it contains no antibiotics and is locally grow in California so we have a better way to eat every night. I love to make easy weeknight recipes, I don’t like when I spend more than 30 minutes cooking a meal or using lots of complicated ingredients.
And just in case you were wondering what is the New Comfort Food, is Using mostly local, seasonal ingredients, minimal ingredients in the recipe, quick, easy steps and fast prep time
You can definitely make a delicious meal under or in 30 minutes, and I can tell you that using Foster Farm Simple Raise Chicken is a great way to start. I like to buy it as a bulk and have lots of it on hand, my favorite is the thin-slice breast fillets, you can save lots of time using this product.
And my recipe today has everything you love, a delicious balance meal with an amazing product and of course all local ingredients. These healthy chicken fajitas are perfect for an easy dinner, especially when you are in a hurry and need a quick and easy recipe.
Cut the chicken breast into strips, place them in a bowl and season with the adobo mixture. Have, all the veggies cut lengthwise and ready.
Heat up a pan to medium high heat and add the oil.
Add the chicken strips and the veggies sprinkle more adobo, cook until chicken is completely cooked.
Add the green onions and mis.
Heat the tortillas in the microvawe for one minute, but firts cover with a damped paper towel to keep them moits.
Once is ready, portion into the tortillas, 2 per person and sprinkle some cilantro.

I want to share with all of you a delicious, simple, easy and quick way to make your own homemade croutons at home. My goal for you is the at the end the day you will feel so inspired that you can come up with different and delicious ideas on flavors that you will never need to buy croutons again.
First things first, lest talk about bread, my favorite bread all time to use for this or any other recipe is San Luis Sourdough® breads, it has an authentic taste & texture, local roots and unique slow-bake process combine to make truly delicious sourdough experience at any time of day and it is also Non-GMO Project Verified. Believe me this is a key ingredient to make the best croutons ever.
We don’t only love it for croutons or sandwiches, but it is also delicious as bread pudding, toast with cheese or avocados and of course perfect for any time of the day; so make sure that you will use a good quality bread just like San Luis Sourdough® breads.
They have a good variety of bread and you can choose the one you most like but my personal favorite for this recipe is the slice sourdough, the taste and the quality goes perfect in this recipe.
Now that we have the bread, lets talk seasoning, for this recipe I choose a ranch flavor, but feel free to make them plain, sea salt, or any flavor you like. What is most important for me here is that you can see how easy it is to make them.
Remember also, to store your delicious homemade croutons in an air tight container, they will be super fresh and last for up to a week.
Please let me know what is your favorite crouton combination.
