I had some leftover shredded chicken and I was wondering what to do with it and then it dawned on me that I could make some tacos. This recipe requires no skills whatsoever and can be whipped up in no time. I have added a nice sour cream sauce to take a bit of the heat out of the spicy chicken and salsa. I’ve added some Jalapenos to serve as I like a bit of spicy punch but you can leave them out if you don’t like heat. Some shredded cheese of re-fried beans would also be good.

Serves 2



1/2 red onion, finely chopped

1/2 avocado, diced

1/2 red chilli, finely chopped

couple of sprigs of coriander, finely chopped

40g tin sweetcorn. drained

1/2 lime

Salt & pepper

Spicy chicken

200g shredded chicken

1 tsp chilli powder

1 tsp garlic powder

1/2 tsp onion powder

1/2 tsp cayenne pepper

1/2 tsp paprika

1/2 tsp oregano

1/2 tsp cumin

Olive oil spray

Sour cream sauce

1 tbsp sour cream

1 tbsp tomato ketchup

1 tsp Tabasco

1 tsp Worcester sauce

To serve

4 mini tortillas

jalapenos, chopped



1. Salsa: I have a bit of a trick for dicing the avocado with very little effort. Chop the avocado in half and take out the seed. Take one half in your hand and make some diagonal cuts down the flesh. Do the same horizontally and then scoop out with a tablespoon.




Mix all the salsa ingredients in a bowl. Squeeze in half a lime and season with salt and pepper.



2. Sauce: To make the sauce, add all the ingredients in a bowl and set aside.


3. Spicy Mix: Mix all the dry spices in a bowl. You will probably have a bit more spice than you need for this recipe but you can store it in a sealed container to use some other time.


4. Chicken: Heat a frying pan and spray with olive oil spray.  Add in the shredded chicken and a tablespoon of the spice mix. Give it a taste to see if it needs more spice. Add some more if required and fry off for 3 minutes, just enough to re-heat the chicken. Remove from pan and set aside.


5. Assembly: You can heat the tortillas on a frying pan slightly or heat according to packet instructions. Place your tortilla on a plate, smear some of the sauce on the wrap, then add the chicken and salsa and any other condiments.

Get stuck in and messy.
