Mango-Lime Shredded Chicken Tacos

Rated as 5 out of 5 Stars

"I put a little spin on a family favorite. While this chicken filling is simmering I fry my corn tortillas until they are nice and crispy! If you like sweet and spicy together, this is a great dinner idea! Fill shells with chicken, lettuce, tomato, fresh cilantro, and your choice of hot sauce. Enjoy!"

  1. Place chicken into a large pot and cover with water; bring to a boil. Reduce heat to medium-low and simmer until chicken is no longer pink in the center, about 30 minutes. Transfer chicken to a work surface to cool; shred.
  2. Heat canola oil in a large pot over medium heat; cook and stir onion, Anaheim pepper, jalapeno pepper, and garlic until slightly softened and fragrant, about 8 minutes. Add shredded chicken, chicken stock, tomatoes, tomato sauce, mango, lime juice, lime zest, cilantro, chili powder, cumin, sea salt, black pepper, sugar, and cinnamon; bring to a boil. Reduce heat to low and simmer until chicken filling is reduced, at least 45 minutes.
  3. Fill corn tortillas with chicken filling.

Very tasty. It took well more than 45 minutes to fully cook down for me, though. The first time I made it, I it was still pretty moist (arguably too moist?) in the shells. On the other hand, I ...
