Soft Chicken Tacos

Soft Chicken Tacos created by Tinkerbell

The Chicken base recipe can also be used for chimichangas, enchiladas, or Mexican pizza. I mix a large batch and freeze in small quantities so I can whip up a quick meal. The chimichangas are a family favorite - see Chicken Chimichanga posting.

    I love this chicken base! So easy to make up & even more versatile to use! I used flour tortillas as that's just a family preference, but these tacos were amazing regardless, because of the base. It's got great flavor & that can be varied to suit any family's tastes. Using your favorite salsa. I made one full batch & split it in half. Made one half with one brand of salsa & the other with a different brand. Both were equally good but had different flavor combinations that set them apart. We also made the recipe #336697 you have posted. Thanks for sharing your recipes with us, Sharon! Made & enjoyed for Pick A Chef Spring 2009.
