3-Cheese Chicken Taco


Recommended Posts

This is my Challenge cook 


I wanted to cook Non-traditional Taco. I found this one which is simple and delicious. 


For those that are looking for a more Heathier Alternative, this is it. 


All ingredients 



Mainaded my Chicken for bout a hour. Mayo, Cilantro, and Key Lime Seasoning. 

Yes, you are seeing right.. Mayo. Mayonnaise seals in juices and also give a nice crust on Proteins



In the mean time, I grilled up my Taco Shells


My ingredients for the Taco shell itself

*Fresh Spinach 

*2 eggs

*3 Cheeses Parmesan, Cheddar, and Swiss 

*4 tbsp Almond Flour

*1/4 tsp Garlic Powder 

*boiling water

*1/4 tsp Salt

I made double batch

Made (8)  5in circles



On grill



Grill Shot of Chicken 




Fixed up a Italian Dressing which was awesome on this Taco. I was very Pleased.



Fill Taco with key Lime grill Chicken, fresh Lettuce, Tomatoes, Cucumbers, and Cheese serve wth key Lime Chips and homemade Salsa. 



Even tho this is a Heathy Alternative, I would eat it again. Def was a nice surprise on this take of a Taco Shell. 

Ps camera lightening is out of whack.. And a bit blurred... oops! 


Thanks for Looking

Wow!  Definitely not what I was expecting from the title!  Really love this non-conventional entry!  Great cook, @skreef! I would love to give those cheesy taco shells a try sometime! 

Thank you @KismetKamadoI kinda figured most would do a similar cook. I knew there had to be most choices and different Taco options and this one sounded pretty good. If someone didn't like cheese this is not for them, but ckreef and I love trying all different cheeses so it was a good recipe to try.

Absolutely takes tacos in a whole different direction, and that's a good thing!  Thanks for the advice on a mayo addition to the marinade, I'll do that for sure.  A very colorful dish and yay for the healthy part as well.  Just a great and worthy entry!

Thank you @Smoke and Awe. Yes mayo is a great mainade substitution and the key lime seasoning was a great pairing. Spinach was def a great veggie to use. I use fresh box of spinnach and Surprised how far the Spinach went, cause it didn't look like there was enough when put it in boiling water to wilt it down, but it was.

Those taco shells are intriguing.  Awesome idea. 

Thank you @shuley. This recipe was a great find. Those that love Taco and maybe don't like the corn shells, these are a great alternative option.
