Recipe of the Day: Buffalo Chicken Tacos

Rachel Tritsch of the Recipes with Rachel blog shared a simple yet special recipe.

ST. LOUIS — Prep time: 15 minutes | Cook time: 10 minutes | Total time: 25 minutes


  • Rotisserie chicken torn apart
  • Frank’s Buffalo Sauce (or whatever hot sauce you like)
  • Pieces of romaine lettuce
  • Shredded carrots
  • Shredded apple (I took a potato peeler and sliced off the apple skin and made small shredded pieces of apple. Here’s my favorite potato peeler. It has a great fruit peeler on the other side. Love it and it’s less than $5!)
  • tortilla bowls
  • queso fresco
  • chopped up walnuts
  • 3 tbs honey
  • 1 tbs olive oil
  • 3 tbs brown sugar


  • Heat up the cooked rotisserie chicken in the skillet with buffalo sauce. Cover and let it steam and heat up!
  • While that’s heating up, put the walnuts, olive oil, honey and brown sugar into a small skillet on low and let it combine and cook the walnuts. I usually cook them for around 10 minutes. You can tell by the smell they’re done, yum!
  • Once the chicken is done, heat up the tortilla bowls in the oven for a few minutes.
  • To assemble: take the tortilla bowl, add the lettuce, buffalo chicken, shredded carrots, shredded apples, walnuts and queso fresco.
  • ENJOY!
  • Note: when making this for my kids, I use bbq sauce instead of buffalo sauce on their tacos.
1 cup thinly sliced cabbage 1 cup shredded carrots 1 cup diced apples 1 cup shredded chicken breast 1 cup diced bacon (NakedBacon) 1/2 cup dried cranberries 1/2 cup diced pistachios 2 tbsp horseradish mustard (or mustard of your liking) 2 tbsp red wine vinaigrette Directions: 1.
