    Wildflour's Note:

    While many North Americans think of tacos as having crisp, fried shells, authentic Mexican tacos are made with soft, fresh corn tortillas. The traditional preparation is the smart choice, as unfried corn tortillas are low in fat and made with whole grains. From MSN.

      These yummy tacos were part of Menu #28779. I opted to grill the chicken then added to the veggies. Check out the menu to see the sides served with it. Gracia.;) Made for ZWT5

      I made several changes to this recipe but felt I still stayed true to the original intent of it, though for us I had to make it much less spicy, because of how past radiation treatments have affected my husbands tastebuds. I started with the chicken left over from Spanish Garlic Chicken. I sliced that up and set it aside. After sauteing my onion, I added in medium fresh salsa that had cilantro in it, with some chopped fresh tomatoes. I thought I had a pepper but discovered it had been eaten already. Because the chicken already had fresh garlic I didn't add any extra. I added the chicken pieces to the pan and then added cumin, pepper, garlic powder and some a little tabasco. I didn't add the jalapeno DH's sensitivity to overly spicy foods, instead I served it with a mixture of Chipotle Cream and Lime Crema for Chili, Tacos, Fajitas and More, so that we could each control how spicy our taco was. Because we were eating at seperate times, instead of heating up our tortillas in the oven we put them in the toaster on low, which works really well.
