Recipe by COOKGIRl
Leftover roasted chicken from Sunday was all --Tasty-- needed as inspiration for this fantastic taco recipe! --Tasty-- served the tacos with home cooked pinto beans and Spanish rice (this one--->> Spanish Rice except the toms were omitted). Fresh, yummy, juicy strawberries for dessert! Note: all amounts in recipe are estimated. *Update*-1 Dec 2009: also good with leftover turkey in place of chicken
