Recipe of the Day: Bobby’s Spice-Rubbed Chicken Breast Tacos

by in Recipes, July 18th, 2011

bobby flay's chicken taco recipe
These aren’t your average chicken tacos — Bobby’s sweet and spicy version is filled with grilled poblanos, barbecued onions and fresh coleslaw. Lean chicken breasts are seasoned with some of his favorites: ancho chili powder, cinnamon, cumin and light brown sugar.

Editor’s Note: If you’re looking to cut down the prep time to make this a weeknight meal, try the following:

1. Buy packaged cabbage-mix that has already been shredded.
2. If you don’t have time to make Bobby’s delicious Fire Roasted Green Chile Guacamole, substitute it with your favorite salsa, especially a tomatillo-based salsa.

pink lemonade layer cake recipe
Paula takes the quintessential lemony summer sip and transforms it into an easy, yet show-stopping layer cake. To a simple boxed cake mix, she adds grated lemon zest, pink lemonade and vanilla.

After the cakes have cooled, Paula spreads a thin layer of butter frosting, made with butter and confectioners’ sugar, between the two cakes. Using an offset spatula, she spreads the remaining frosting over the top and sides of both layers.
