Tex Mex Cheesy Sauce

My recipes are grain free, refined sugar free, and many are dairy free. While I don’t eat grains or refined sugar my recipes are tasty and decadent. I am on a journey to reclaim my health and feel better. I am feeling better and regaining my energy. Needless to say the above is just a small list of the things I no longer eat. For example, I only use olive oil, butter, coconut oil, nut oils, avocado oil or grapeseed oil.

Today was the first day we got snow. I heard that in the early morning it was coming down pretty good. I normally go to the gym in the mornings but I have already spent six and a half hours at the gym this week, so I took the day off. By the time I got up the snow had melted but it was raining.

I spent the day with my daughter. We went shopping and purchased some new Christmas decorations. We found some stemless wine glasses that had Christmas gnomes on them. They appeared to look like little Swedish Jul Tomte (Santa Clause – in Sweden). They were so cute. I am not sure what we will use them for but it was too good to pass up. It was so nice to spend some quality time with my daughter.

We eat a lot of chicken at my house. Do you ever have days that you just want to switch it up? Many people eat vegetables with a cheese sauce why not chicken? That is the thought that hit me when I was inspired to create this dish. I was in the mood for something a little spicer. So why not add salsa to it? This cheese sauce has a little kick and goes well over the top of Taco Fried Chicken. Of you could make this sauce and dip some vegetables into it. It also goes well with my Taco Flavored Broccoli Pilaf. Goes well with Taco Fried Chicken.
