Travis Said:Does anyone have any good Mexican recipes for a shredded chicken dish?
We Answered:3 to 4 chicken breast halves,
with bone and skin (about 3 pounds)
1/2 onion, thinly sliced
3 cloves garlic, peeled and minced
1/2 teaspoon dried marjoram
1/2 teaspoon dried oregano, preferably Mexican
2 bay leaves
Pinch of dried thyme
1/2 teaspoon salt
1 (14.5-ounce) can low sodium chicken broth
Arrange the chicken breast halves snugly in a large, deep saucepan or pot. Sprinkle on the onion, garlic, marjoram, oregano, bay leaves, thyme and salt. Add the can of chicken broth and enough water to just cover the chicken.
Bring the liquid to a boil on high heat. Partially cover and reduce the heat to low, so the liquid just simmers. (Make sure the liquid does not boil again.) Cook for 7 minutes, then cover the pot completely and remove from the heat. Let the chicken cool in the broth for 30 minutes to 1 hour.
At this point, the chicken and broth may be refrigerated until ready to use. Once cold, the fat will solidify on top and can be easily discarded. The chicken and broth will keep 2 to 3 days.
Or, you may use the chicken immediately. Remove it from the broth and shred into small pieces, discarding the bone and skin. Reserve the broth for moistening the chicken shreds or for another use. (Discard the bay leaves.)

1 can black olives, sliced (optional)
1 bottle taco sauce (Old El Paso is best)
Taco Shells - buy the kind that's already folded over in a "U" shape.
1. In the morning, or a couple of hours before the party, you must spend time, slicing, dicing and grating the ingredients. (If a guest arrives too early, ask him to help grate cheese.)
2. Preparation of the table for serving: Get a large sectionalized platter, or use several small bowls, and a serving spoon for each. (I use a long wooden bowl from the Philippines with five sections in it.) In each small bowl (or section of platter) place 1 of the following foods: Cut up tomatoes, diced onions, shredded lettuce, grated cheese and sliced black olives.
3. Half an hour before party: In a large skillet, saute ground beef, with about 3 tablespoons chili powder and 1 teaspoon cumin. Drain off excess fat. Meat should be cooked shredded. Place the cooked meat in one of the larger bowls on the table, with a serving spoon.
4. Warm taco shells slightly before serving. Place taco shells on a tray.
5. At the Party: Each guest should take a taco shell and fill with a spoonful of each of the following (in any order) : Meat, cheese, tomato, lettuce, onion, olive and taco sauce. And you have made a taco! Tacos can be served with enchiladas or other Mexican dish.

Derek Said:Does anyone have any really good mexican food recipes?
We Answered:how old are the kids, my kids dont like spicy or saucy.
enchiladas are always a hit, soft fry corn tortillas, cook and shred your favorite meat, grate cheese for inside and on top, canned sauce is the easiest, mix 1/2 the can into your meat and poor the rest on top. roll em up, bake em at 425 till all the cheese is melted, and youre done.
I make some in an extra dish without sauce, for my picky kids.

We Answered:Chicken Quesadillas
Marinate your chicken breasts in fahita sauce. (I use World Harbor brand...I think that's the name-clear bottle, blue lid-Delicious!) Bake in the oven on 400 degrees until done (about 20 minutes). In the meantime, open 1-2 cans of diced green chilies (depending on your taste.) Cut the chicken into bite-sized pieces. If you have a quesadilla maker, heat that, otherwise you can use the microwave. Put a soft tortilla shell first, then layer the chicken, cheese, green chilies and bacon bits or crumbled bacon. Place another tortilla shell on top and heat until the cheese is melted. Serve with sour cream.
