It’s no secret that I LOVE Mexican food. I’m always looking for ways to make it healthier at home because the food at most restaurants is made with unhealthy refined oils, genetically-modified corn, and factory-farmed conventional meats.
It’s nearly impossible to find organic chicken tacos at restaurants where I live, so being able to make them at home is a lifesaver!
These homemade chicken tacos are quick and easy to make – and kid’s love them too. Simply grill up some pastured chicken and top it with fresh peach salsa and goat milk feta, all wrapped up in organic corn tortillas. Delish!
To make these tacos, I start with the best organic ingredients. Especially when I’m cooking with meat, I am extra careful. Most chickens are raised in despicable conditions where they don’t have room to move freely in cramped barns without access to natural light. They sit in ammonia-ridden waste all day, which is why they are routinely fed antibiotics to prevent disease. These practices disgust me.
This is why I choose to only eat organic pasture-raised chicken. Chickens that are humanely raised on pastures are healthier and more nutritious than their indoors-only counterparts, with higher levels of omega-3 fatty acids. When shopping for chicken, look for the USDA Organic label along with the Animal Welfare Approved by AGW, or Certified Humane label.
And don’t feel limited to chicken! This peach salsa is the perfect accompaniment to any type of white fish. You can simply spoon it over baked fish or make fish tacos with this salsa, instead of chicken.
If you have time, mix up the salsa the day before and let marinate in the refrigerator. It’s always better the next day when all the flavors have had time to meld.
These tacos are even MORE incredible with the homemade corn tortillas from the Food Babe Kitchen cookbook! So, you’ll have to give that a try too. Once you make homemade tortillas, it’s really hard to go back to the store-bought ones.
- 2 large chicken breasts, grilled and sliced
- 8 to 12 sprouted corn tortillas
- ½ cup goat cheese feta
