Description

These delicious tacos are perfect for lunch or dinner. They are made with shredded salsa chicken, and topped with a sautéed mixture of bell pepper, onion and tomato. To finish them off, just add avocado, shredded lettuce and a squeeze of fresh lime juice.


Ingredients

Scale
  • Slow Cooker Salsa Chicken
  • 1 box Siete Taco Shells, cooked
  • Avocado Oil
  • Freshly Ground Black Pepper, to taste
  • Himalayan Pink Salt, to taste
  • 1 Bell Pepper, thinly sliced
  • 1 Onion, thinly sliced
  • 1 Optional: Jalapeño Pepper, sliced
  • 2 Limes (reserve 1/2 for the sauté)
  • 1 Nature Sweet Constellation Mini Colorful Tomatoes, (a small handful), cut in half
  • Romaine Lettuce, shredded
  • 1 Avocado, pitted and cubed

Instructions

  1. Prep: Preheat the oven to 400 degrees F. Prep all the veggies and add the taco shells to a sheet pan.
  2. Sauté the veggies: To a skillet, on medium-high heat, add a drizzle of avocado oil. Add the bell pepper, onion, jalapeño pepper, some salt and pepper and lime juice. Sauté for about 6-8 minutes, or until crisp-tender, and slightly charred in places. Make sure to give it a good stir occasionally.
  3. Soften the tomatoes: During the last couple minutes, add the tomatoes just to soften them a bit. Remove the veggie mixture to a paper towel lined plate.
  4. Taco shells: Cook the taco shells according to package directions.
  5. Assemble: Top the tacos with the salsa chicken, shredded lettuce, sautéed pepper/onion mixture and avocado chunks. Serve each plate with a lime wedge.

Notes

  • Prep Time: The slow cooker chicken is not included in this prep time. 
  • Chicken: If the meat is pretty juicy, you may need to drain it just a bit before adding it to the taco shells.
  • Leftovers: You can refrigerate the chicken in an airtight container for up to 5 days, or it freezes well.
