Chipotle-Lime Shrimp Taco Salad w/ Cilantro Vinaigrette

ATTENTION: Please view this post at Savour the Senses’ new site-http://savourthesensesblog.com– for recipe and full post. Thank you!

You know those nights when you have an entire meal planned out in advanced, but when dinner time roles around you just don’t feel like eating that oh-so-exciting dish? Well, last night was one of those nights. As delicious as sun-dried tomato and feta stuffed chicken sounded, I just wasn’t in the mood for those flavors. I wanted spice and citrus. I decided to save that for another night. Instead, this is what I came up with.

The cilantro vinaigrette pulls this dish together. It adds a nice tangy flavor that is a great compliment to the spicy shrimp. Roasting the tomatoes gives them move flavor and juice, making this recipe even more delicious! I was planning on eating this with guacamole and salsa, but tasted it and  realized it didn’t need any additions and was perfect as is.

Chicken, White Bean, & Chorizo Enchiladas w/ Green Chile

I have an addiction to Mexican food, or any food similar to it, so I am always looking for new recipes so I am not eating the same thing again and again. I have made enchiladas before, but only with chicken. I also have attempted to make green chile before, but put an entire bag of extremely spicy chile peppers in the food and ruined the dish (I had to add an entire jar of tomato sauce, and entire bag of cheese, and milk to make it even semi-bearable!).

I can now say that I have found one of the best enchilada recipes and green chile recipes. Thanks to Drick’s Rambling Cafe for the enchilada recipe, which I tweaked a bit. I will definitely be keeping this recipe for future meals. I chose to slow cook the chicken so that I could easily shred it, plus it gives it much more flavor. You can cook the green chile with pork if you would like, but I felt that it wasn’t necessary with all of the meat in the enchiladas.

Garlic Pulled Pork

This is the first of a few re-posts from my previous blog. I thought that it would be a good idea to post a couple of my favorite recipes from the past six months to kick-start my new location. Hope you can find something you may have missed before!

My friend originally found this recipe on Mark’s Daily Apple. It is an affordable recipe if you ever need to feed a large group!
