On Sunday the kids watched the movie Turbo, and there are two very happy brothers who own a Taco Food Truck, called Dos Bros Tacos. Max, all of 7, worked out that this means ‘Two Brothers Tacos’… and then he asked me if we could have Tacos for supper. So it’s Monday, and guess what’s for dinner? Tomali and Zucchini & Peppers Chicken Tacos. I bought the Mexicorn GMO and preservative free Tacos – they are so easy to heat because they are par-cooked. All it takes is 3 ½ minutes in the oven to heat. This recipe will make Tacos for 4 people – serve with a side salad or salsa, or some rice.
1 tablespoon of unsalted butter
½ a red onion
1 teaspoon of Chipotle Spice (or paprika, salt and pepper)
4 tablespoons Pauli’s Tomali (if you want adult only Tacos – use Pauli’s Saffron Chilli Chutney in place of the Tomali)
4 forkfuls of Pauli’s Anytime Zucchini & Peppers
4 free-range chicken breasts
½ head of lettuce
2 cups of grated cheese – here you can get creative… add Avo, crème fraiche, or some Pauli’s Something Hotter for some heat
12 Mexicron Tacos
Heat the butter in a wok / pan
Pre-heat the oven to 180°C
Throw the onion into the wok and cook together for about 3 minutes on high heat until the onion is soft
Add the Chipotle spice and salt and pepper
Cut up the chicken breasts into small cubes and add to the onion, stir together for about 2 minutes until the breasts change colour from pink to white
Add the Pauli’s sauces and cook together for another 10 minutes on med-low heat – this is such a quick meal!
Place the Taco shells on the rack of the pre-heated oven and cook for 3 ½ minutes
Now for the fun part – create your own Taco to your taste – add the lettuce, the cooked chicken mix, cheese, avo, crème fraiche… Pauli’s Something Hotter (adults only) and serve – best enjoyed watching a good movie together.
