This is SO good! It’s called Chicken Acapulco…

and it is *to die for*We had it at this restaurant:

 I went with a fellow designer when

I still was doing custom decorating in Austin, Texas.

After lunch we went down where they filmed the movie

“Michael” with John Travolta. Then we strolled through

All the shops and Antique stores. I wish I had taken

Pictures but this was WAY before blogville at least

For me. This was about 10 years ago. I no longer

do Interior design. I started out designing showroom

Floors, then went into Interior Design. I settled for

The custom side of designing. I loved doing window

Treatments and custom bedding. It was so MUCH easier.

It’s not like on HGTV where you have all these people

Walking behind you carrying everything in for you.

I had to actually carry samples in the house all by myself

In HEELS! That’s why I settled on window treatments.

LOL. I now work out of my home and love it. I always

Worked out of my home but was always in my car

Running to appointments, so working out of my home

Is nice. However, I wish I was retired! HEEHEE

Here is my made of version of the chicken Acapulco:

Boneless chicken breast

Rotel or salsa

Sour Cream


Salt, pepper, cumin, and if you like spicy, sprinkle

Some chili powder on it as well.


Sprinkle spices on chicken, add rotel, and cilantro.

Bake at 350 for 1 hour. Add the sour cream and

Cheese and wallah…A yummo dinner!

Hi Diane,thanks for joining me on my journey. You are ....a designer...I have friends who are designers...crazy bunch....lots of laughs...very opinionated...but so am I...and why do all designers love window treatments? Every single one I've it the shoe thing?
At first I thought that chicken dish had can do now...low carb...but it's cheese! I think I'll try this....Tomorrow I'll read your older posts...I'm sure I'll enjoy them

this sounds good and most importantly (to me, anyway) sounds like it would be easy to make!

Suz, I liked doing the custom end of designing, because it was a fast turn around and I LOVE LOVE fabric. I only had to carry in fabric samples and a brief case. No need to carry in pillows, fabric books, tile samples, wall paper books, mirrors an d all that hoopla. Easy peasy. Primitiques, yes, it was in Gruene, Texas. Have you been there?
