chandra coverHello and welcome to Romance Recipes where I am happy to introduce you to a new author and a new recipe! Two of my favorite things! Today I am bringing you author, Chandra Ryan, and her recipe for Chicken Tacos along with an introduction to her paranormal erotic romance, Ink in the Blood. Please join me in welcoming Chandra and savor her recipe for Chicken Tacos as you read about her new book! 

Chicken Tacos

The heroine in Ink in the Blood, Izzy, is a recovering addict and is trying to live a healthier life. But, of course, she’s still going to want comfort food from time to time. And, in my home, nothing is more comforting than hot, homemade tacos. And with ground chicken and fat free refried beans you can even argue that it’s healthier.

2lbs COOKED ground chicken

2 -5oz cans of fat free refried beans

2-1oz packets of taco seasoning (we use Lawry’s)

About 20 soft or hard taco shells depending on preference

Plain fat free Greek yogurt

Shredded cheese

In a large skillet on medium heat, combine the cooked chicken and the refried beans. Stir until smooth and well mixed. Add the water amount listed on the back of the back of taco seasoning packs (remembering to double one pack since you’re using two) then stir in the seasoning. Let the mixture simmer until it thickens and is hot.

Scoop a couple of tablespoons of the meat and bean mixture onto a taco shell then garnish with the cheese, lettuce, Pico de Gallo, and a little bit of the Greek yogurt (this will kind of act like sour cream). Serve immediately (I had mine with Spanish rice) and promptly refrigerate any leftovers.


Izzy has lived between two worlds her entire life—one filled with magic and darkness, the other populated by mundane humans. She was born into the magical world of the Community. But sexy, forbidden DEA agent Jacob belongs to the other. He has no idea her world even exists.

But that doesn’t mean he hasn’t noticed her. They’ve worked together for the past six months, attempting to bring down her drug-dealing half brother while driving each other crazy with pent-up desire. But now that it’s time to say goodbye, they both find it impossible to let go.

After one passionate night together Izzy realizes her mistake. She can’t bring him into her world. She has to end things before she gets too attached. When he refuses to leave, she must find a way to guide him through the darkness.

Inside Scoop: In this scorching urban fantasy, ink is thicker than blood.

Meet Chandra:chandra pic 

Being from a rather nomadic family, Chandra Ryan loves to travel and meet people. But she’s found that sometimes, like when you’re stuck inside because of a good old-fashioned Southwestern heat wave, you have to make do. Fortunately for her and her loving family, who don’t like seeing her suffer from cabin fever, she’s found creating new people and places equally as fascinating. Also, you’re a lot less likely to spill your ice tea.
