Sometimes I get an overwhelming desire for chicken tacos. It’s all consuming and they become all I can think about until I stuff my face with them.

Case in point: last Friday I was doing my usual grocery shopping. Everett was asleep in his stroller and I was leisurely browsing in Whole Foods…because I love Whole Foods. I’m checking out a cheese melter thingy that I’ll never use and never buy because it’s thirty-seven dollars and I can melt my own cheese and…the taco craving hit. Hard.

I quickly gathered the rest of the items on my grocery list and headed home. Except when I got there, the baby woke up. Which is okay, because he’s really cute and sometimes I think my heart will explode because I love him so much.

So I fed him, impatiently. Silently imploring my kid to hurry the hell up so I could make some chicken tacos. I’m like, a really good mom. I promise I love my kid more than tacos. But they’re in my top five for sure.

So my point is – by the time I’m done feeding my son I am RAVENOUS for tacos. I can think of nothing else. Thank God these take less than fifteen minutes to make.

Some key points about these amazing tacos, other than the fact that they’re insanely delicious:

  • organic chicken is a great source of protein (bonus if you get pastured chicken from a local farm!)
  • healthy fats and fiber from the avocado
  • low-carb, paleo, gluten-free using Siete tortillas (my absolute favorite)
  • Lots of antioxidants and nutrients from the tomatoes, cilantro, onions, romaine, and avocados
  • another healthy dose of fat from grass-fed cheddar
  • made from real, whole foods – the kind that fills you up with no additives, sketchy ingredients or otherwise processed garbage so common in food these days
