2 Ways to Serve Chicken Taco

I am finally back to blogging school lunches.  Work has gotten way of my blogging life, and I'm so way behind. I have so many lunches to post and share with you.  The good thing is, none of the days left the kids settle for cafeteria meals.  Oh they did, but just once.  That's by special request because their favorite double mini burger is on the menu this month. I believe G and his friends eat that together in school once in 2 months. I especially know that coz I'm friends with his friend's mom, which we both pack lunches for our kiddos to school.

Mr G loves chicken tacos that we have to pack them again.  But this time I made use of ground chicken instead of shredded chicken breast. I noticed that shredded chicken breast holds better and gives lesser mess.  It stays inside the corn tortilla shell. 

Missy A is never a fan of taco shells and tortilla wraps. So I made her corn tortilla chips in lieu of the taco shell.  Same tacos but served differently.

On his EasyLunchboxes are 2 chicken tacos made of corn tortilla shell with ground chicken.  Salsa in condiment cups with spoon to scoop them out, grated cheese on the smaller compartment, and medium-riped green mangoes on the bigger compartment.

On her Goodbyn Mix and Match Set, Missy A had a similar lunch except that she got corn tortilla chips instead of a shell for her chicken taco. Medium-riped green mangoes and shrimp snacks on the side.  No salsa and cheese for her.

Procedure for Corn Tortilla Chips:

  • Preheat skillet under medium high heat, if you prefer to fry.
  • Cut the corn tortilla into wedges (cut it into 8's or 12' like cutting a round pizza).
  • Pour vegetable or canola oil onto skillet.
  • Add the corn tortilla wedges, sprinkle some salt.
  • Cook for 3-5 minutes or until crisp.
  • Let it stand on paper towels to blot excess oil.
  • Serve.
This is a good example of how you can send lunches of the same entree but packed differently.  No kids are alike, what else on their individual food preferences.  Mine are no exception, and  I have to make both happy or one might come home with a sorrowful tummy.
