Love the ease of these tacos. What’s even better is that the flavor is right on! Who would have thought the BBQ sauce would go well here, but it does! Used homemade corn tortillas which added that earthy corn goodness and used crema instead of yogurt because that’s what I had on hand. Great tacos, Teresa and Thanks so much! Made it for FYC and Billboard Tags.

Everyone loved these tacos tonight. The chicken was so easy. The variety of other ingredients really added to the flavor. Definitely a repeat at our house.

Easily worth more stars - I tweaked to make the WW points lower: used fat free greek yogurt and 1/4 cup of BBQ sauce. 6 points/serving! And it was delicious!

Daily Inspiration

I would have never thought about bbq sauce on a chicken taco, but it really works well. I had a mixture of black beans/corn/red bell peppers left over from another dish I made so they worked perfectly in these tacos. I mixed chopped cilantro into the mixture after it was heated and used the sour cream and lime juice separately as a topping. We especially enjoyed using corn tortillas vs. flour. Definitely a repeat at our house. : )
