Pollo Dorados Tacos (Golden Chicken Tacos)

Tacos for dinner is always a good idea. Wrap taco shells around chicken, chile peppers, onion, diced tomatoes, and cheese--then fry--for an extra-crispy finish.

Pollo Dorados Tacos (Golden Chicken Tacos)

Directions

  1. In a large skillet cook onion in the 1 tablespoon hot oil until tender. Stir in canned tomatoes and chile peppers. Simmer, uncovered, about 5 minutes or until most of the liquid is evaporated; stir in chicken.
  2. Place 1/4 cup of the filling on one end of each tortilla and roll up; secure with toothpicks. Pour the 1/4 cup oil into a clean large skillet; heat over medium heat until hot. Fry tacos, three or four at a time, in hot oil for 2 to 3 minutes or until lightly browned, turning occasionally. Transfer fried tacos to a paper-towel-lined tray.
  3. To serve, cover a serving platter or individual plates with shredded lettuce and diced fresh tomato. Top with tacos. Serve with Mexican crema, crumbled cheese, and, if desired, salsa.

From the Test Kitchen

*Tip:

To prevent tortillas from breaking, wrap two tortillas at a time in paper towels. Microwave on 100 percent power (high) for 10 seconds. Fill the two tortillas before warming the next two tortillas.
