Taco week continues here on A Family Feast – and we’ve got another delicious idea for your family’s next taco night – our Pulled Chicken Tacos!
One of the most popular recipes on our site is our recipe for Mexican Pulled Chicken – and that recipe is terrific used as a filling for tacos! Just load up your favorite taco shell (we used store-bought, hard corn taco shells here, but soft tacos are also delicious) with the pulled chicken and your choice of toppings.
If you are like me and prefer your taco fillings to be extra-melted (like we show above), just load up a microwave-safe plate with the pulled chicken and cheeses and heat it up for a few seconds before adding the filling to your taco shells. Then – pile on the fresh ingredients like shredded lettuce, diced tomatoes, pico de gallo, pickled red onions, guacamole, sour cream, and taco sauce.
