Oh hey!  How was your weekend?  Mine was beautiful: filled with tons of sunshine, my very first silent/live auction and oh-so-fun baby showers.  LOTS of babies happening lately around me and everyone is due around the same exact time.  Hooray for babies!  Mr. Wishes, my very helpful mother-in-law, and I were able to squeeze in several hours of yard work thanks to this nice weather we are having lately.  We put a nice dent in the landscaping work that we need to do around our new patio.  We are planting some tall bushes around the campfire circle to give us a little privacy from the neighbors and the road behind our house – it’s really coming along!  Oh and I have to remark about the auction we went to:  we got to get dressed up all fancy and go to a nice dinner where there were items to bid on for the silent auction…and then comes the fun part – the LIVE auction!  It was so much fun to be a part of and watch the bidding happening live.  It’s so exciting.  I know, I’m a huge dork.

OK, so I rarely get extremely excited about sharing a certain recipe with you all.  I mean, don’t get me wrong – every recipe I share I think is well worth that share and if it makes it on the blog, that means I very much enjoyed eating it.  But THIS one, my friends, is just in a league of it’s own.  I loved loved loved this unique take on the normal “chicken fajita” turned into chicken fajita dippers and just know you will think they are phenomenal. You can really make a meal out of these, which I did, but I think they would be just as fun – if not more fun – as an appetizer at a party.  Football Sundays, anyone?

Oh, and by the way, I just boil the chicken and then shred it once it’s cooked. You could also use leftover plain grilled chicken or rotisserie chicken for this recipe.  I served these with delicious side of homemade guacamole to dip them in and it really can’t get any better than that.  Make these fajita dippers. That’s an order.  The end.

    I love getting dressed up and going to events. I have only been to a silent auction, but a live auction sounds like a total blast! These dippers seem like a great dinner too.
