spicy chicken and veggie tacos

nothing too special here for this dish. today was one of THOSE days. hot, allergies, hives...all for the mom this a tired and cranky momma bred a tired and cranky boy today. since its finally freakishly hot here we decided after one nice long nap to high tail it to the nearest greasy mall and ride the carousel 172,838,3939 times. after the heat died down i figured it was a good time to get something started. this is such an easy weekday dish to throw together a bit before and then easy as pie later. not a lot of measurements going on so adjust to your tastes.
*pics later..the battery is toast again*

a bunch of boneless, skinless chicken breasts
cayenne, pinch or more
sea salt
onion powder
2 garlic cloves, minced
cilantro, handful and chopped
parsely, handful and chopped
olive oil

mix everything together and marinate as long as you need.

a couple scrubbed zucchini, thick julienned
1 small yellow onion, sliced thinly
1 yellow bell pepper, sliced thin
mushrooms, as you like them
3 garlic cloves, sliced thinly
sea salt and pepper
chili powder
cilantro, handful and chopped
parsely, handful and chopped
olive oil

mix together and marinate.

handmade whole wheat tortillas from trader joes, yummy!
1 or 2 avocados, sliced
fresh grated organic cheese
black beans
fresh corn kernels

when ready heat up the grill pan and slice the chicken up; saute the chicken. when done toss in the veggies and mix up and cook until juicy and done. toss in some of that corn.

warm up a tortilla, spoon in some chicken and veggie mixture. top with avocado, beans and cheese and eat!
