Easy Peasy Soft Tacos!

Got leftover chicken from dinner?

You too can have leftover chicken like this!!! Make it hot or cold your choice!

What you need:

Leftover grilled chicken, beef, fish, goat, bison, whatever (shredded, chopped)
Leftover salad mixings (lettuce, green onions, tomatoes)
Sour Cream
Guacamole (I used Wholly Guacamole in the's pretty good!)
Salsa (I just bought this fire roasted salsa....mmmm fire roasted....way to go)
Tortillas (these were low carb too!)
Shredded Cheese

Step One:

If you have a GAS stove. Awesome. Heat up those tortillas right on the burner. I LOVE the little charred areas to add to my overall taco experience. The teacher here highly advises the use of tongs please!!

Step Two:

I say, make sure you have something mushy on the tortilla. Whatever you choose in whatever order, this is a must! You need something to help keep your 'fixin's' on the inside. Nothing is worse than to bite and it all falls out every which way.

Step Three:

The veggies would go great here. Your lettuce, green onions. I choose to NOT use tomatoes for I am using Salsa on this.

Step Four:

Add your chicken or any leftover meat really.

Step Five:

Last touches of flavor, guacamole, salsa, shredded cheese...
Now that the last additions are soft you must tuck your tortilla edges in well or OOZE city.

I toyed with the fact that perhaps I should have ended with chicken to help keep the smushy stuff in?'s fun licking your fingers!
