Chicken Tacos
by Chef Deedle

With gas prices as high as they are, working parents are spending more time at home eating their evening meals. They are a lot healthier, freshly made, and this one is even quick to prepare. This is one of our favorites.

1/3 cup light mayonnaise
1 tsp. ground cumin
2 Tbs. medium hot chipotle salsa or regular salsa

2 cups shredded cooked chicken or rotisserie deli chicken
½ cups med. hot chipotle salsa or regular salsa
12 taco shells
½ small head iceberg lettuce, cored and shredded
1-1 ½ cup shredded Monterrey Jack cheese or Cheddar cheese
1 cup cilantro leaves

For the sauce, mix mayonnaise, cumin, and 2 tablespoons of salsa in bowl.

Combine chicken and ½ cup salsa in a microwave-safe bowl. Microwave on high, stirring once, until hot, about 1 ½ minutes.

Fill taco shells with chicken mixture, lettuce, cheese and cilantro; drizzle with sauce.

Easy and economical, not to mention, Delicious!
