So I bought this magazine, it’s called Taste of Home. I don’t buy magazines that much anymore because of the price. It just bugs me that they are so much more expensive here in Canada vs the US. I just don’t understand. I could understand 10 years ago when the CAD dollar was so much lower than the US dollar but it’s no longer like that. But this time it was something I picked up at the last minute because my husband had a coupon where if you spent so much you get $10 back, so I picked up this magazine to reach that amount. After we paid I realized the magazine was $15 so there goes that deal.
Nevertheless, I was determined to make use of this magazine and get my $15 worth. Luckily it has a lot of great recipes which I will make. Here in this magazine is where I found this great recipe for chicken and mango tortilla bowls. I thought it looked so fancy, healthy and delicious.
I was right. We loved them. The cabbage slaw was so refreshing with the chicken and the mango. The only difficult bit about this recipe is making the tortilla bowls. I couldn’t get my tortillas to stay so I used an elastic band to keep the tortillas on the ramekins. My husband thought it would melt, but I was willing to risk it since the tortillas were not in the oven that long. All in all they turned out pretty good. Great idea and a wonderful lunch.
- 3 cups shredded cabbage
- ½ cup sour cream
- ½ cup salsa
- ½ cup frozen corn, I used canned corn
- ½ green pepper, chopped
- 6 flour tortillas, 10 inches
- 12 oz cooked chicken breast (I bought a roasted chicken and used the breast)
- ½ tsp chili powder
- 1 tbsp butter
- 1 medium mango, peeled and cubed
- ¼ cup fresh cilantro, chopped
- In a large bowl, combine the cabbage, sour cream, salsa, corn and green pepper. Chill until serving.
- Place six 10 oz ramekins or custard cups upside down in a large baking pan. Lightly spray warm tortillas on both sides with cooking spray. Place over prepared ramekins, pinching sides to form bowl shapes.
- Bake on the ramekins at 425 F degrees for 8 to 10 minutes or until crisp. Remove from ramekins to wire racks.
- In a large skillet, saute the chicken and chili powder in butter until heated through. Spoon cabbage mixture into tortilla bowls; top with chicken, mango and cilantro. Serve immediately.
