Crispy Tacos

This a recipe I got from Pioneer Woman but I made it my own and it was delicious!!!

1 pkg flour tortillas
4 whole boneless,skinless chicken breasts
1 pkg taco seasoning (I used half a packet)
1 can (4 oz) diced green chilies

Cut up chicken in small pieces, brown in skillet with a little oil, the green chilies and sprinkle taco seasoning on top. Stir and cook until chicken is done. Remove from heat and set aside.

Heat a couple of inches of canola oil in a skillet. Fill each tortilla with a spoonful of the chicken mixture. Place in oil and help hold the fold over part with a fork or tongs. Once it can keep it's own shape, start another. Fry until golden brown. Hold taco sideways and let oil drip out. Drain on several paper towels.

Once they are fried, pry open the top and add: sour cream, shredded cheese, lettuce, tomatoes, taco sauce

Soooo good and full of flavor!

you can find Ree's recipe on www.Pioneerwoman.com

Crayon Hearts

These are not food, but fun to make as Valentines! First, umwrap Crayola brand crayons, break into little pieces.
Then put the little pieces into a flexible heart mold (spray with cooking spray because it makes it easier to pop them out)
Melt them on 250 until all pieces are melted, remove from oven. Let them cool and become hard again.
Last, pop them out and let them finish cooling on a towel.
Then, you have heart shaped crayons to give your Valentine!! We made little tags that said, You color my world (with a picture of the Earth)
