#GrillWithATwist #CollectiveBiasYes, these amazing tacos are as good as they look and YES, they are healthier than you think! Score!
The above dish is actually vegetarian, thanks to a little help from MorningStar Farms! I have long been a fan of their veggie cuisine and my kids count the chicken nuggets among their personal favorites. I keep them stocked in my freezer for quick lunches at home and add them to their plates with sweet, bell pepper strips, cottage cheese, and a pile of berries.
That convenience stretches out during the summer too! Wether I am cooking on the grill or just trying to incorporate as many fresh, summer foods into the menu as possible, I like to make sure all my guests have something they can eat, regardless of food preferences. Enter these incredibly kicked up chicken tacos! They satisfy everyone with one spectacular meal!
I purchased all of the items for this recipe at my all time favorite store-Target. So it basically means I have a one stop shopping trip, since I am always in Target anyway! *sigh* Aren’t we all…?
I found my MorningStar Farms product in the meat and seafood portion of the frozen section and am thrilled that they always have such a huge variety!
They also happened to be on sale the day I went shopping so you can BET that I stocked up. I often incorporate meatless meals into our menu rotation for health reasons, variety, and also to keep my grocery budget on target. The cool thing is that MorningStar Farms has a Veg of Allegiance program where you can pledge to skip the meat for a voluntary number of meals!

This particular recipe is a bit spicy due to the addition of Sriracha, but even my kids scarfed it down. It takes a few ingredients and elevates them to something you would order at a little tex mex restaurant. But WAY cheaper and much easier than having to leave your house. Be sure to make plenty, as it seems to require a very large platter to keep up with demand!
Spicy Chicken Tacos
Just a a few simple ingredients is all it takes for this recipe. Minimal ingredients but maximum flavor!
4 MorningStar Farms Original Chicken Patties, cooked according to package directions
3 c of shredded coleslaw mix (about 1/2 of a one pound bag)
1/4 c mayo
1 T Sriracha
1 T lime juice
8 corn tortillas
extra lime wedges for serving
While chicken patties cook, toss the coleslaw mix, and next three ingredients together in a bowl until evenly mixed. Taste for seasoning and add salt and pepper to taste. Slice the chicken into strips. Gently toast the corn tortillas one at a time in a dry pan over medium heat, flipping the tortillas when one side is barely browned. Immediately, but carefully as they are a bit warm, layer a few pieces of chicken in the center of the tortilla and top with about 1/4 c of spicy slaw mixture. Serve with extra lime for squeezing!
