Like anyone preparing for the onset of Hurricane Isaac, I stocked up in supplies a couple of nights before it hit. Finding non-perishables was a bit tricky this year, as I have been avoiding gluten for the last several weeks for health reasons. I was able to find some things such as organic chili, canned chicken, and corn tortillas.
I wasn’t expecting to lose power when we still had lights Tuesday night when everyone started losing theirs. But, lo and behold, Wednesday morning the sound of our tower came to a stop. I had laid all of our food out on the kitchen table the night before, as well as putting a couple of tubs of Wholly Salsa in the fridge (I had frozen most of it when I received a huge shipment a few months ago). By the time lunch and dinner had come along, I was very happy I had prepared. I admit, it’s a little hard being creative when all your food comes out of a can. But I made do!
Chicken Verde Tacos
- Two small cans or one medium can chicken
- Wholly Avocado Verde Salsa
- Corn tortillas
Combine first two ingredients and put about a tablespoon in each tortilla. This is my favorite salsa; it gave a nice bite to cold tortillas and chicken.
Four Layer Dip
- One can organic chili
- Wholly Guacamole with Pico
- 1/4 Cup sour cream
- 1/4 Grated cheese
- Tortilla chips.
Layer the first four ingredients in order. Serve with tortilla chips. This dish met with approval all around. So many flavors to entertain the taste buds!
If you ever have to shop for a hurricane, I suggest combining foods to make tasty meals that people will rave about instead of complain about. And also buy paper plates and disposable dishes, unlike me. Too many dishes to wash when the power came on!
Disclosure: I received a cooler of Wholly products gratis for completing a blogger survey. I was not required to write a review in exchange.
