Chicken tacos, in lettuce shells. Leftover meat from a whole roasted chicken, combined with my mole spice (long list, but the basic idea is cocoa powder, cumin, chipotle powder, ground sesame seeds...), red onion, and bell peppers. Eaten with homemade salsa, lime wedges, and a whole avocado.
Served this with my sweet potato fries, homemade by coating with egg whites. You may have heard this trick from psycho-anti-fat-ers, but it actually is simply the best way to mimic french fries at home if you don't want to sit around shallow frying batches in lard (time consuming if you don't have a deep frier). If you make fries just by coating with loads of oil, I find that the edges never get that crispiness. This way seems to work very well though!
2 sweet potatoes, sliced into matchsticks
2 egg whites
seasoning (cajun, curry, whatever you fancy)
-Preheat the oven to 375
-Whip the egg whites into a froth. Keep whipping until you get "soft peaks" ie, your bowl looks like shampoo bubbles, you can lift your whisk out of the froth and pull up "peaks".
-Coat the sweet potatoes in egg white. This will give them a crispy coating that will be just like fries you get from nasty oil vats.
-Arrange the fries in a single layer on a baking sheet. I know, a pain, but this way they will all be crispy goodness.
-Bake for 25-40 minutes (varies wildly depending on your thickness of fries. check as they bake, flipping once or twice)
