Tacos are a great dish to make if you want to get creative. Now that I am trying to be a little healthier, I thought “how can I make the regular tacos that I enjoy so much healthy?”
And the answer to that is… whole wheat tortillas!
I decided to make some chicken tacos, and for the first time ever I used a whole wheat tortilla. Using this recipe for inspiration, I created my own. Here is what I did:
- 2 chicken tenderloins
- 2 medium whole wheat tortillas
- 2 tablespoons medium salsa
- 2 tablespoons of Adobo (with cumin) seasoning
- 1 tablespoon of flour
- 1/4 cup of packaged shredded lettuce
- 1/2 cup cheddar cheese
- 2 tablespoons sour cream
- 1/2 tablespoon olive oil
Start by cutting the chicken up into three pieces per tenderloin. Cover the chicken with the Adobo seasoning and flour. Put the olive oil in a pan over medium heat. Add the chicken and cook it until it is slightly browned. In a separate pan over high heat, warm the tortillas for about 30 seconds to a minute. Distribute half of the lettuce to each taco shell. Put one tablespoon of sour cream in each, followed by the cheddar, salsa, and chicken.
In all honesty… these have been the best tacos I have ever made. I think the seasoning played a huge part in its success. Adobo seasoning can be used for so many foods, and chicken is definitely one of them.
With the added benefit of whole wheat tortillas, this recipe is one of my favorites. Cheers!
