Anyone else love to shred chicken! I love it.
Want to reduce the calories and/or fat? Eat these without a shell, on top of some fresh crispy romaine lettuce (the meat, chilies and tomatillos were so flavorful on their own, and with the monterey jack cheese it was a perfect combination of flavors.) You could also use chicken breast instead of thighs(thighs have more fat, but also a bit more flavor of course. You might not miss that extra flavor though, since the other ingredients worked so synergistically….yes that’s a word….. in this recipe).
We turned this taco night into an all-out feast! Guacamole, salsa, sour cream, chips, and our favorite Summer Ale beer.
QUESTION: What would you serve with these tacos (other than chips and dip of course)? Leave some ideas in the comment section! My suggestion would be a veggie, since the meal already contains a protein, grain, and some dairy. We actually served this with the quinoa salad I posted on Monday. Yeah, it was a carb-loaded dinner on this particular evening. It happens every once in a while.
