Jack is Cooking Tacos

Well Hello Internet!
Tonight for Dinner i made Tacos.  and i don’t mean i went out and bought some taco kit and mixed in some ground beef.  i made REAL tacos.  Taco’s like how you would get them in mexico.  or how i would imagine you would get them there, i’ve never actually been!
anyways, these tacos were delicious, cheap, and really easy to make.
Here’s what you’ll need:
1 tomato
6 tomatillos
1 green pepper
1 hot pepper (you can really use whatever type you want, and put more if you want it more spicy)
1 can of corn
1 onion
the breast of 1 chicken
cilantro
paprika
corn tortillas
sour cream
guacamole
cheese
so first, i roasted all of my vegetables (except the onion) in my broiler.  even the canned corn.  i just strained it and dumped it out on the pan with the other vegetables.  i roasted them until they started getting a nice browning on them. then i turned them until i got the same on the other side
Next, i took the tomato, the tomatillos, and some cilantro, and i pureed them in a blender.
in a large pot i took my chicken breast and i browned it quickly on both sides.  then i poured in the tomatillo sauce to begin to simmer the chicken.
after the chicken had simmered for about 10 minutes i cut it up a little bit.  i let it simmer a little while longer, until i could pull it apart with a fork.  at this point i added the rest of the roasted vegetables,  an onion i had cut up, and some paprika
i let all this good stuff simmer together for a while.  finally in the end i through in some more cilantro, and a little lime juice for good measure.  (lime juice is pretty awesome on everything)
now!  for the tacos!  i took my tortillas which i heated up in the microwave, and in each one i put a little bit of this delicious chicken mixture, some guacamole, some sour cream, and some grated cheese.
oh man was it good.
(btw this mixture made enough sauce to make like 12 tacos)
mmm mmmm delicious
