Chipotle Chicken Tacos Get Me Every Time

Bring on the heat, my friends. Now, my readers in the Boston area, I know this has a double meaning for us, with our Celtics facing the Heat tonight. But, right now, all I can do is tell you about taco #2/20: Chipotle Chicken Tacos. Spi-cy!

Shell: soft, whole wheat, store brand
Filling: Chipotle Chicken
Toppings: lettuce, sharp cheddar cheese
Salsa: Cucumber-avocado “salsa”

Modifications: I cut back the brown sugar in the chicken recipe–I prefer smoky meats to sweet meats, like in barbecue. In the “salsa,” I left out the jalapeños–mostly because I knew the chicken would be spicy… but also because I didn’t have a fresh one on hand that night.

Results: These were so spicy that if we make them again, well probably only use half the can of chipotle peppers in ancho sauce. With a full onion in the dish, plus the avocado “salsa”, it was also super hearty—plenty of leftovers to be had. We put ours on nachos. We’re cooking up some more tacos this week. Can’t wait to share them with you guys!
