I love hanging out in the kitchen – any kitchen- with friends, and if I can learn a thing or two while socializing and catching up, that’s all the better. On Monday afternoon my friend Fernanda taught me how to make chicken chilaquiles the same way her mother made them when Fernanda was a kid growing up in Mexico – what fun for me to watch someone make a dish she knows by heart.
Lettuce wraps are one of those rare dinners that actually pleases whole DamFam. They’re fun to eat, a little messy, and healthy all at the same time. I have two different kid-tested, mother-approved versions for you today; one has been buried in the blog archive for quite a while, and the other is a recipe I simply cannot even believe I’ve never shared here before, especially since it’s high on the list of The DamFam Top Ten. Either one you choose to make would be perfect for a busy weeknight.
I’ll just say this from the get go: today’s recipe is definitely for the kids. It got four out of five thumbs up from the DamFam last evening. Would you believe the one dissenter was the Husband? Yeah … and he normally likes everything. I gave my approval because all three punks (including No Thank You Boy) liked it and said they’d eat it again. So, it was deemed blog-worthy.
