    Quaffle's Note:

    My favorite chicken taco meat recipe that I got from a coworker. I usually serve these with flour tortillas, cheddar cheese, and some guacamole. Great for a get together, as you can cook before hand and have people assemble their own. I also love to snack on this cold. Can easily be scaled up or down depending on how many people you are serving.

      Just the recipe I have been looking for. I made it just as written except I skipped adding the salsa. I wanted the filling not to have a tomato base since I will be serving with pineapple/avocado salsa. I looked a long time to find a recipe that didn't involve tomatoes or one that could be altered a bit. This one is great. Thanks for posting.
