Bahhhh, I’ve fallen off the blogging ledge again. I really don’t have a good excuse…school starting up, lack of time to buy groceries, and little time to think up yummy dinners! This weekend though, I was determined to break out of my rut. I had made my usual stock of shredded chicken in the crockpot and had all the fixings for tacos. The only problem? No taco seasoning. So, I attempted to make my own! It didn’t taste like normal taco seasoning, but the flavor was great…the lime juice is sooo perfect for Mexican food. Chicken tacos are a great meal for nights where I’m short on time…I just defrost some shredded chicken from my stocks, add some seasoning, and find all the toppings I can…within 15 minutes, I’ve got my meal!
Chicken Tacos (enough for dinner and leftover lunch the next day!)
1 cup seasoned shredded chicken (see below for seasoning recipe)
1/2 cup diced tomatoes
1/2 cup diced green pepper
1/2 cup salsa
1/4 cup cheese
3 medium sized, low carb tortillas.
This is pretty self explanatory, but just in case…place warmed chicken onto tortillas and top with toppings, or whatever you like. Roll up and enjoy! I made two for dinner and took the rest of lunch the next day. Leftovers are my life for lunch.
