Nothing says date night more to my man than great food. & he’s a sucker for fajitas. Actually- we both are. Big time. I’m one of those people who likes lots of options. I order lots of dips & sauces. I like all of the salsas at my disposal. & if there is some kind of sampler- that’s my first choice. Fajitas are basically an acceptable dinner sampler with the added build-your-own fun. & I’m here for it. Keep reading to check out our date night at Nacho Daddy & what Ryan looks like mocking me……
A few weeks back I knew I was in for a horribly busy time- so I knew it was time to prep lunch way ahead for the week. How do I usually do this? Basically soup or salad. I went with soup because I had some veggies & herbs that I knew would be excellent in a soup recipe! Keep reading to check out the recipe, substitution ideas, & some of my favorite tortilla chips!…
Happy Friday! Have you guys noticed anything new on Home in High Heels? like…say….everything? Completely new setup, I hope you guys will enjoy it! Bare with me as I’m still working out kinks including these photo sizes. Sorry! I’m hoping to have them a nice BIG size soon so you can see details!
But anyway…onto the food!If you caught my Cilantro Lime Ranch Dressing recipe awhile back then you know how much I love my little dressing mixing gadget (check out the Vibe Salad Dressing Mixer on Amazon here!) & it makes me create more recipes out of pure inspiration. Today I’m sharing my easy mix that I use on tacos, with veggies, & even thinned out as a dressing. I call it the Creamy Healthy Avocado Sauce! Keep reading to check out this simple wonder!
So this recipe was born months ago when I had half an avocado that I needed to use up. My husband doesn’t eat them & although I can sit down to a whole one I wanted to make it last. I always have these ingredients on hand with the exception of the avocado so it practically makes itself.
- ½ a ripe avocado
- ¼ to ½ cup Greek yogurt
- 1 to 2 tablespoons milk
- 1 tablespoon lime juice
- ½ a fresh or roasted jalapeno, chopped & seeded OR jalapeno sauce
- 3 pinches fresh cilantro, chopped fine
- Combine all ingredients in food processor or whisk together until creamy. Add more or less milk depending on how thin you'd like it.
- Serve chilled.
This day I was really feeling tacos & this sauce was absolutely a perfect topper! These are roasted chicken tacos on corn tortillas topped with lettuce, Creamy Avocado Sauce, & some beautiful feta cheese. Yum! Also great with chopped veggies (use it in place of ranch!) & just about anything that is good with a chilled topper in my opinion. If you need a dip cut back on the milk & add a touch more greek yogurt. Also great with a tablespoon or two of your favorite salsa.
