If you like Mexican food, make this recipe! It is so good! As written, the chicken marinade is a trim healthy mama fuel pull. If you fry the tortilla shells like I did, it ends up being a low carb, trim healthy mama s recipe. I was inspired by an off plan tiktok video I watched. You can do so much with the chicken and make it whatever fuel you want. The chicken is so good!

I fried low carb Mission brand tortillas

If you want to really impress your family or friends, this extra step is so good. Mine were tostadas because I didn’t have paper towels. I didn’t realize I didn’t have any in the kitchen until after I placed them in the hot oil. I gave my hubby the tacos. If you do decide to fry the shells, have everything ready. Place your tortilla in the hot oil wait a few seconds, add your chicken and pico de gallo and fold over. It happens pretty fast. Drain on paper towels for a minute or two.

Serving Ideas

This Spanish rice recipe is one that my whole family will eat. If you wanted to go with an e and it with corn tortillas, serve it with refried beans. The pico de gallo is so easy to make, I really suggest however you serve it, make sure you make it. Also, I ended up cooking this in a large skillet but you can easily dump everything in the crockpot or a pressure cooker. This recipe is so easy and can be adapted to fit your schedule.
