~: TIPS AND TRICKS TO SHREDDED CHICKEN TACOS: ~

Rotisserie Chicken: I like to buy my rotisserie chicken from Costco on the grounds that you get double the measure of chicken on one bird at a similar cost. On the off chance that you have extra destroyed chicken that you’re not going to use in this formula, you can freeze it for some other time.

Distinctive Protein: Although this formula is designated “Destroyed Chicken Tacos,” these flavors and fixings function admirably for ground meat, ground turkey, ground chicken too.

Tomato Paste: This destroyed chicken just requires 2 tablespoons of tomato glue. I regularly don’t utilize an entire container of tomato glue in seven days, so I generally freeze it by the tablespoon. To do this, place the material paper on a little heating sheet or plate – something that can without much of a stretch fit in your cooler. Drop tomato glue by the tablespoon on material paper a couple of inches separated in columns then, at that point freeze until strong, around 60 minutes. Cut a lattice around the tomato glue so every tablespoon has its own material square. Wrap up the material paper around the tomato glue and spot it in a plastic pack. Freeze for as long as a half year, taking out one tablespoon of tomato glue depending on the situation.

Salsa: If you’re stuck and don’t have tomato glue, you can supplant the chicken recipe stock and tomato glue with salsa, however, you’ll need to utilize less cayenne pepper and potentially different flavors so the flavor isn’t excessively solid/zesty.

What would it be advisable for me to finish off my tacos with?
