So I made a great find at HEB (my favorite grocery store down here in Texas). They have a product line of fully cooked meats that are easy to prepare. Preparation just involves microwaving. I found some cooked shredded chicken and used it to make a delicious chicken soft taco that is only 210 calories.
- 1/3 cup HEB Fully Cooked Shredded Chicken (but if you don’t have a HEB, you could cook your own chicken and shred it)
- 1 Mission Carb Control Whole Wheat Tortilla
- 1/2 slice Tillamook Pepper Jack cheese (or 1/2 oz of your favorite cheese)
The fully cooked shredded chicken:
The Mission Whole Wheat Tortillas are very tasty. If you’re going to have a tortilla, have one of these – not the all white super enriched flour tortillas. I actually prefer these over the white:
And of course, my favorite – Tillamook Pepper Jack Cheese:
Heat up the shredded chicken in the microwave for 60 seconds. Take out and place on tortilla. Then place the half slice of cheese on top of the meat:
Then, microwave for 20 or 25 seconds to melt the cheese and heat up the tortilla. One a side note, when heating up a tortilla in the microwave, place a paper towel underneath the tortilla. It will absorb any condensation and prevent the tortilla from becomming soggy.
Mmmmm….melty yumminess. Wrap up and enjoy! Add some salsa or tabasco if you would like for a zestier taste!
