Chicken Soft Tacos with Avocado and Sharp Cheddar

Chicken Soft Tacos with Avocado and Sharp Cheddar

We had friends over for dinner and I decided to make these tacos because everyone was craving Mexican food. I chopped up some leftover roasted chicken along with some red onion, cilantro, lime juice, and seasonings. The chicken was flavorful and delicious and tasted great in the tacos that I topped with lettuce, tomato, green onion, black olives, fresh avocado, and sharp cheddar cheese. I served these tacos with the Spicy Fire Roasted Salsa along with sour cream. My kids loved the tacos and so did the rest of us. This was a quick and simple dinner that tasted great.
