Instructions Checklist
  • Heat the olive oil in a skillet over medium heat. Stir in the onion; cook and stir until the onion has softened and turned golden brown, about 10 minutes. Add the garlic and red pepper flakes, stirring until fragrant, about 1 minute. Stir in the chicken broth, Swiss chard, and salt. Cover and reduce heat to low. Simmer until chard is nearly tender, about 5 minutes. Remove lid and increase heat to medium, stirring until the liquid evaporates, about 5 minutes. Remove from heat and set aside.

  • Heat another skillet over medium-high heat. Warm the tortillas in the skillet for about 1 minute per side. Fill the warmed tortillas with the chard, and top with the queso fresco cheese and salsa.

This recipe was very easy. I think I will like it much better with less heat. I reduced the red pepper flakes to 1 tsp. and that was still way too hot for me. I want to taste the Swiss chard and cheese. I will try it again but with a pinch of red pepper flakes. Read More

This has become one of my go-to recipes. It's quick healthy and a great way to get some greens into the diet. You can also add some meat but its very good without. Read More

Excellent. I made this last night and my friends loved it! The only change that I made (not on purpose) was the use of goat cheese. I served the tacos along with a spicy pumpkin soup. It was a really nice pairing. Read More

This is so good I've made it a weekly meal. I've left out the chicken broth or subbed with a splash of white wine. No salsa & still came out yummy Both kids 8 & 5 loved it. Read More

First may I recommend that you drain the chard after you cook it. I didn't and it made for very soggy tacos. Other than that I like this recipe. The only thing that I think I would do differently is to maybe add a splash of lemon or lime to the taco for a little zip. Read More

My husband nearly choked when I told him we were having meatless tacos for dinner. But after dinner he couldn't stop saying how fantastic these were and that these were definitely a "do again". I don't often make things more than once so it's a privilege for a recipe to be added to the "do again" file. Note that a pinch of salt really is just a small pinch of salt. I added a large pinch and it was borderline excessive. I guess it depends on how much salt is in your chicken broth too. Also next time I'll use less red pepper and instead of mincing the garlic I'll smash the gloves and pluck them out before I build the tacos. Also of note I was only able to get 5 tacos out of this recipe which was fine for me and my husband. If I were serving 4 I'd double the recipe. Thanks for a great meatless taco recipe! Read More

Thanks so much for sharing this! Never would have stumbled upon this in my kitchen experiments with mismatched ingredients but I love it - for its taste presentation and use of ingredients I've been storing in the freezer for way too long!:) Read More

Great recipe! I tweaked it by adding fresh corn off the cob at the same time as the chard. I also added some cumin chili powder and pepper for some extra flavor. With a homemade salsa of tomatoes red bell pepper avocado LOTS of cilantro and lime it was perfect. I didn't even need the cheese! Add a dash of Cafe Rio's tomatillo cilantro creamy dressing if you have one in the area! Read More
