Soft Chicken Tacos

The word of the week this week is chicken. It's funny how we go on kicks every now and then with certain ingredients. No matter how many times we've had chicken this week (3), I'm still loving every second of it. None of these dishes has even tasted remotely the same. In fact, even the texture of the chicken is different in each one. From the beer up-the-butt chicken heightened by the smoking process, to the chicken smothered in green curry, to tonight's special that kind of actually tasted a bit like KFC (in a good way!) and had this marvelous texture on the outside when savoured on it's own. My husband barbecued some onions, jalapenos and chicken. He tossed the chicken in cumin and chili powder first. Then he added some roasted red peppers, grape tomatoes, black beans, avocado, coriander and rice to the selection. After warming some soft tortilla wraps on the barbecue we spread some salsa over them and added our favourite ingredients. What a fantastic spectrum of textures and flavours!
