Chicken Tacos with Mango Relish
This is a fresh and delicious way to use leftover, cooked chicken. This recipe is low fat and full of fresh veggies. I decided to make this when I saw the package of home made corn tortillas at the store yesterday. Here’s what I did to make this:
Chop 1/2 sweet onion and saute in 1 tblsp olive oil on med low heat. Add chopped or shredded leftover cooked chicken and 1 smashed clove of garlic. Season with celery salt and pepper, a small shake of smoked paprika, a pinch of red pepper flakes, a pinch of cumin, and 1/4 tsp chili ancho powder.
De glaze the pan with a small splash of chicken stock or water, (about 1/4 cup), simmer for a minute till the liquid evaporates, and turn off the heat.
Meanwhile wash and spin some romaine lettuce and cut into shreds.
Chop some avocado, appx. 2 tablespoons red or green onion, 1/2 mango, tomato and fresh cilantro. Dress these chopped veggies with a bit of red pepper flakes or a dash of cayenne and some tangerine juice.
Heat 2 corn tortillas in a pan with a bit of canola spray.
Once your tortillas are heated through, assemble your tacos, chicken first, then the lettuce and the veggies. Garnish with a small dollop of plain yogurt.
I didn’t use any cheese but you can if you like.
