My ground chicken taco recipe uses my homemade taco seasoning and salsa verde in the sauced filling, fresh charred corn tortillas, shredded lettuce, cheese, pico de gallo and pickled onions finish these off!
- 1 tbsp vegetable oil
- 1 medium onion diced
- 3 garlic cloves minced
- 1 lb ground chicken
- 3 tbsp Homemade Taco Seasoning
- 2 tbsp flour
- 1 cup salsa verde
- salt season to taste
- 8 small (6 inch round) corn tortillas
- pico de gallo
- 1/2 head of iceberg lettuce shredded
- pickled red onions
- shredded cheddar cheese
In a large skillet over medium high heat add the oil. When hot, add onions and sauté for 3-4 minutes. Add the garlic and stir, cook 30 seconds more. Season with pinch of kosher salt.
Add the ground chicken and taco seasoning. Break up the meat with the spoon. Cook until chicken is no longer pink.
Sprinkle the flour over the chicken and stir to cook for 1 minute. Add the salsa verde and stir. Lower heat and reduce for 10 minutes. Season to taste.
Over a hot flame on the stovetop or on a grill, char the fresh, soft corn tortillas on both sides.
Fill each taco shell with lettuce, salsa verde chicken filling, cheese, pico de gallo and pickled onions.
