A few weeks ago on Facebook I mentioned that I had planned a month of oven-free meals. Living in the desert heat with a swamp cooler makes it so I don't want to turn my oven on unless I HAVE to. And 3 weeks later, I've only baked some bread, rolls, and a few batches of cookies. I haven't used the oven once for dinner. It's been great! I'll be ready for fall time when I cam turn my oven on all I want! :)
I've tried a few new recipes that have been so yummy! This is one of my very favorites. I found it on the Atheno's web page. They make feta cheese, I LOVE FETA CHEESE!
The flavors here were awesome, there was the savory taco flavored chicken, with sweet juicy mango bits, tangy feta, buttery smooth avacado and fresh cilantro and tomatoes. I'd thought I'd died and gone to taco heaven! We'll be enjoying these year round for sure, but I thought they were particualry summer appropriate. I hope you'll love them as much as I do!
Chicken, Feta, Mango Tacos
1 ½ pounds chicken, cut into bite size pieces
1 tablespoon olive oil
1-2 tablespoons taco seasoning
¾ cup green salsa
The ingredients below are to top your tacos, you don’t have to have these particular measurements, but this is a rough idea of how much you’ll want.
1 mango, peeled and diced
1 avocado, diced
1-2 tomatoes, diced
⅓ cup fresh cilantro, chopped
¾ cup feta cheese, crumbled
6-8 flour tortillas, cooked and warm
1. In a non-stick skillet heat oil over medium heat and add chicken and taco seasoning, and cook until no longer pink and juices run clear. Turn off heat and toss with salsa. (can keep warm on low heat if desired while you chop up everything)
2. While chicken is cooking, warm tortillas and chop the rest of the ingredients and place in bowls for topping each taco.
3. Top each tortilla with chicken mixture, and the desired amount of the rest of the toppings, roll up and enjoy!.
