Grilled chicken seasoned to perfection and place on fresh flour tortilla shells. Piled on with pinto beans, buttery grilled corn, tomatoes, lettuce, sour cream, feta cheese and a silky smooth seasoned avocado cream.
I cannot say enough good things about this chicken dish. It’s seriously one of the best dinners I’ve ever made and that’s saying something. It’s hard to pick which is my favorite part. Maybe it’s the shredded, seasoned chicken or maybe it’s the avocado cream sauce. One thing I know for sure; the house smells amazing — and if you’re anything like me, it’ll be hard to keep from eating a taco or two before they make it to the table.
It’s nights like tonight that I wish dinner was this convenient every night. Tacos are a huge part of our family meals and it makes sense that they are both simple yet flavorful and satisfying. I’ve loved these tacos since the first time I’ve made them and I know you will, too.
My favorite way to devour tacos is with grilled chicken and flour tortillas.
But these aren’t just any tacos, these are fresh, naturally delicious flour tortillas made with no preservatives from TortillaLand® found in the refrigerated section at Walmart®. The tortillas take 30 seconds a side to cook then get hung on the oven rungs to form a perfectly shaped shell to hold all the fixings.
This recipe starts with simple and convenient Tyson® Grilled & Ready® Chicken and features a simple seasoning to compliment the flavor that will go a long way. With Tyson® Grilled & Ready® Chicken, the family can have the best of both worlds — delicious and healthy protein filled meals that are good for everyone.
Let’s not forget about the avocado cream. It’s such a simple recipe and will quickly become a favorite. It starts with a whole avocado that gets blended with fresh lime juice, olive oil and robust, full-flavored Wish-Bone® Italian Dressing. The dressing has no high fructose corn syrup and is packed full of herbs, seasonings and flavor for an extra zest boost of flavor. You will be amazed at how much flavor it adds to such an otherwise simple cream dressing.
Perhaps one of the best pleasures in life is to experience a dinner that can be made out of simple, everyday ingredients. There are plenty of different ways tacos can be prepared yet this dish manages to make it to the menu a few times a month.
