We had this for dinner tonight and it was delish! Wonderful flavors. Thank you for sharing, my family and I enjoyed it very much!
I can't believe I haven't rated this yet. I've made these a good many times. Talk about yummy! I use the leftover's from the Roast "Sticky" Chicken found on this site (can't seem to locate the recipe number), which adds a fabulous flavor to the chicken. I also grate the carrots rather than cut them into small pieces (at the request of my denture-wearing neighbor pal who eats here often). Truly great tacos! So glad to have bumped into this recipe. :)
great with fresh green or purple cabbage too. I also added lime juice to spike it up a bit and 2 more chipotles ... yummy!
My friend requested we leave the carrots out in this, so I was worried it might turn out tasting odd, but my dad said this was the best chicken salad he'd ever had! I don't eat chicken salad often, but this is good!
Oh. My. Gosh. This was so delicious! I don't write a lot of reviews, but I felt compelled to tell everyone to try this recipe! It was a bit labor intensive for me - all the shredding, slicing and chopping. I think next time I'll use my mandolin to help out instead of slicing and chopping with a knife. I bought a rotisserie chicken and pulled the meat off and shredded it so that took some time, but boy did it make the salad tasty! We skipped the tortillas and ate this as an entree salad. Every bite is a mouthful of burstful flavor! I can't wait to have my leftovers! Good thing is - the longer it sits, the better it tastes! Yum!!
Fantastic, different tacos. I would have never thought to have used napa cabbage and carrots, but it definitely worked. I roasted a whole bone in/skin on breast the night before which made this really quick to put together. I realized too late that I only had a few drops of balsamic vinegar left so I used red wine vinegar and 1/4 c of olive oil. I also had to use parmesan coarsely grated bc lack of Mexican cheeses in my market. I will definitely be making these again and I hope to make my own tortillas to showcase the full fresh flavor on these. DH loved these and loved the fresh taste!
Colorfully gorgeous, healthy and perfectly delicious. Didn't and won't change a thing. Well, I guess we did have some mango salsa on hand and it added to the specialness.
SOOOO GOOD!!!!! I actually changed it a bit though, to our tastes and what we liked. I didn't use the carrot, cabbage or avocado (my husband doesn't like avocado). I cooked some chicken in the microwave, shredded it by using two forks. With the chicken I mixed balsamic vinegar, ONE chipotle chili, olive oil, salt, red onion, fresh cilantro and I added lemon juice and diced tomatoes. I let it marinate for about two hours. Then I heated up a pan, threw the mixture in and heated it up. We used soft flour tortilla and I also tried it like a lettuce wrap. We added some cheese and sour cream on top and it was excellent!!! AWESOME TACOS!!!! Our new favorite!
I made exactly per the instructions--very tasty but I think next time I'll use red wine vinegar and another chile. Thanks for something different!
Definitely OUTSTANDING! I did a few things different but got an amazing outcome, nonetheless. I browned and drained 1 lb of ground turkey and let it cool slightly before mixing in the dressing and vegetables. Also, I probably at least doubled the dressing (with a bit less oil) because I had way more than 1 1/2 cups of meat. And I grated the carrot instead of dicing it. I forgot to get some hard cheese as suggested, so I just served it with some sharp cheddar. Ok, whew, now that I've listed all my changes, let me tell you how yummy they were! At first I was afraid that they were a little spicy (Oh! I used about 2 chipotles + about 1 Tblsp of the adobo sauce) but when combined with the veggies and nestled into a warm corn tortilla with the avocado....oh, they were yummy smoky heaven. My DH and FIL said they were definitely 5 stars and that they should be on my mythical restaurant menu. I won't even tell you how many I actually ate, but suffice it to say, I COULDN'T STOP EATING THEM. Ok, I eventually did, but I ate way more than usual! Needless to say, I will be making these again and again. What a delicious change from the usual boring taco dinner! Thanks Kirsten for a really delicious dinner. Updated 8/26/07: The 2nd time I made these I added in a couple Tblsp of tomato paste with the vinegar, oil & chipotles and that just rounded out the flavor and took it to a whole new level. (I doubled the other ingredients, except for the chipotles.) What was an incredible recipe to begin with is now akin to gastronomic nirvana.
