mexican chicken taco

I made a big batch of fajita style chicken (but in a tomato sauce - see recipe in source, but with added canned tomatoes and more spices to compensate) so I’ve been living off of that and making different meals with it. On the menu today: deconstructed chicken taco (sort of) with a grilled blue corn tortilla, avocado, extra mature cheddar and pickled jalapeños | so yummy, healthy and about 450 calories.

    Grilled Chicken Tacos/Fajitas with Pineapple Salsa & Guacamole 

    No real recipe here but here is everything that I used/did. Grilled some stir fry chicken strips (breast meat that is carved into small strips - I buy them already sliced from my local grocery store), seasoned with my own Mexican spice blend (will do another post on this). Grilled some thinly sliced sweet onion, bell & sweet peppers, and mushrooms. Pineapple salsa and guacamole recipes have been previously posted here and here. Wrapped everything together in a gluten free white corn tortilla and garnished with lime and fresh cilantro. 

    Feel free to use any taco toppings you want. The possibilities are endless! (this would also be phenomenal with grilled steak or grilled shrimp - YUM)

    Delicious is not even the right word.
