I found this recipe on the Old El Paso website and tweaked it because that’s part of the fun of cooking. This is a super easy version of chicken tacos. If you don’t care for hot and spicy food, use regular or even mild taco seasoning and use plain petite diced tomatoes instead of the Rotel.

If you’d like to have friends over for a game night or movie night, but the thought of cooking scares you, a charcuterie board is an answer to that situation. Charcuterie (pronounced “shar-COO-tur-ree”) is, in its basic form, a meat and cheese board. However, trust me on this one: Once you start assembling all the goodies, it’s hard to know when to stop.
