The last time I made my Chicken Tacos with Mango-Pineapple Salsa I realized that I hate pulling and shredding a whole rotisserie chicken. It takes FOREVER! Not only that, the slimy griminess of it all is almost enough to turn me off all together. Did you know that Costco sells shredded rotisserie chicken that has been removed from the bone for you? Um. Yeah. Neither did I until recently. I had no idea. You better believe that I made a bee-line directly to it on our last grocery shopping trip. So do you need quick and easy dinner ideas? Add this to your list!
In fact, this not only needs to be added to your list of dinner ideas – but go ahead and add it to your lunch ideas too! I’ve been eating this for lunch all week. It comes together in no time flat and is loaded with flavor. Ready in less than 30 minutes makes this the perfect recipe for your family!

Our absolute favorite corn tortillas are the Ezekiel Sprouted Corn Tortillas. They are so delicious and good for you too. You can read all about my love for Ezekiel products in my Get Healthy In 2014: Kitchen Basics Part 3 post. So many great products with ingredient labels that you don’t have to be afraid of!
Would this work with flour tortillas…that’s all I have at home right now.
I bet it would work just fine. May not hold up quite as well as a corn tortilla, but you can just grab a fork and dive right in :) Enjoy!
Were you reading my mind? I just bought black beans today (for the first time) because I read how packed with nutrients they are. So, off to the store tomorrow for corn tortillas. I have everything else. I LOVE how you keep things so simple and easy to prepare….but healthy and good tasting. You rock!
Awesome!!!! I’m definitely trying to simplify meals a little more. I’ve been known to have the more complicated dishes, so for March I’ve got a 30/30/30 series going on. 30 recipes, 30 days, 30 minutes or less! I hope you enjoy – I also try to do mostly healthy and sprinkle in a few treats here and there as well! Thanks for stopping by!
Seriously… We haven’t had time to grocery shop since we got home from vacation… Looking at all of these posts is making me so hungry! Can I just hire you to come cook for me?
Sure! How much do you pay? ;)
I have shredded chicken in the freezer just waiting for this! I am going to look for your Ezekial brand tortillas. Where to you find it? Costco, Harmon’s, Good Earth? I’ll have to look back at your post and see if you mention it.
We buy them from Good Earth. I bet you can find them at most health food stores like Whole Foods too. Not sure if Trader Joe’s would carry them.
