Ever heard of French Tacos? Doesn’t ring a bell does it? Aren’t Tacos meant to be Mexican? Well yes, you’re right but let me tell you a bit about what these crazy guys have done just across the border.
Some chaps near the Alps mountains in France, launched in the late 2000’s a sandwich that is absolutely a revolution in the food industry in France. Their sandwich, called the ‘Tacos’, is a wrap with meat or chicken, a cheesy sauce, stuffed with fries and a crazy Algerian sauce. It has gone viral in Belgium, Morocco and other french speaking countries. It is coming slowly here to the UK but hey, we have a recipe for you.
Among the most demanded sandwiches at home, chicken tacos come first, especially when I season them with Spicy DZ, the original Algerian sauce, I won’t tell you!
It’s true that the chicken tacos with the Algerian sauce are a delight, the only “catch” and always having tortillas at home, otherwise the recipe becomes a bit long. But the result is worth it.
I’m not going to tell you that I have only one recipe for chicken tacos, I make my chicken tacos on the fly, I put in everything I like, and especially what is available at home . And it is always better than the subsequent recipe, yes when it is good it is !!!
with tortillas, I don’t just stop making tacos, I also like to make:
Bolognese tortilla gratin
Prepare the chicken:
2 chicken breasts
salt, black pepper, cumin, and fajita spices (otherwise the spices to your taste)
2 cloves garlic
To garnish the Tacos:
- sautéed chicken
- ingredients on top
- Algerian sauce
- optional lawyer
- Red onion
- grated edam
- start by browning the chicken with the ingredients from the list in a little oil
- cook until the chicken turns a nice color.
- mix the ingredients of the Algerian sauce, to have a nice sauce, taste to adjust the taste.
- garnish the tortillas with a little Algerian sauce
- layer the chicken
add on top, the avocado in strips, the onion in strips, a little more sauce and
- garnish with a nice handful of cheese.
- fold the tortillas to enclose the contents, and
- cook in a panini press, or in a pan on both sides.
- enjoy while it’s hot!
