This fake meal thing is not so sustainable, plus it doesn't work when I have someone else to feed. Since I knew Tom would be over for dinner this week, I bought the ingredients for this recipe when I was at TJ's on Sunday.
Side note: I love living in San Francisco, but I forgot how big grocery stores (especially how wide the isles are) can be out in the burbs. We stopped at the TJ's in Novato on Sunday and the width of the isles seemed silly big. Then I realized the ones in SF are probably just ridiculously small.
Since I had everything I needed, I whipped this up for dinner last night.
Below is my version of this recipe. Slight changes from the original because:
1. I don't love green peppers.
2. I don't like cumin.
3. Beans and corn are good.
4. There wasn't quite enough sauciness for my liking.
1 pounds boneless, skinless chicken, cooked and shredded
1/2 red onion, chopped
Apparently Tom and I have no idea how to use a broiler, or just got distracted, because we burned our first 4 attempts at toast with melty cheese. Fail. We finally got it right and it was delicious.

This was a very good simple recipe. My favorite parts: it had great flavor plus it was super rich and creamy without using any mayo! I will definitely make this again.
