    This is a great way to use leftover chicken. Leftover chicken taco meat is great for taco salads the next day. Adapted from Simply Simpatico cookbook

      These were OK. I used chicken that I'd cooked that afternoon in Chicken Broth . The only substitution I made was using a white onion instead of green. I started with 1/2 cup taco sauce and found it a little dry, so wound up using about a cup total. My family liked these, but we've had other versions that suited our tastebuds better. Thanks for sharing!

      Mmmmmm! Very quick and easy lunch that was tasty! I added 1 small onion and a clove of garlic to the green onion because we like them, and had to sub enchilada sauce for the salsa or taco sauce as that's all I had on hand, but would love to try the salsa next time! Very good! Served DH's on corn tortillas and the rest of ours on flour tortillas. Added sour cream and cheese. Very, very good. DH asked me to make it again! Thanks
