Mini Crispy Tacos

When it comes to appetizers you can never go wrong with tacos…truthfully you can never go wrong with TACOS period. These mini crispy tacos are perfect for any gathering and it pairs great with a variety of sauces/salsas and little extras like fresh limes. There’s really just two ingredients for this recipe…oh and a dash of salt. The first is the tortilla, for the bite size taco get yourself a package of “street corn tortillas”, if you don’t have that option you can always use a medium to large cookie cutter to get the right size. You can always just use regular sized corn tortillas, the bigger the better right? The second ingredient is the chicken. I absolutely love store bought rotisserie chicken. Rotisserie chicken is the best because I can get a good two meals for 4 from one chicken, they are so juicy and bursting with flavor and I can’t forget the perfectly golden savory skin. Yum!

There is a basic meatball recipe that I stick to, except one day the worst thing for meatballs happened…no breadcrumbs…no bread. Unfortunately I had everything ready and all I needed were the breadcrumbs or at least a slice of white bread. Looking to find another substitution for it, I saw a box of Panko breadcrumbs and figured if it said breadcrumbs it would be okay. Well! They definitely were not the average crispy on the outside and tender in the inside meatballs! In fact, they were actually crispy with a hint of chewiness and packed with flavor. OMG they were good! Surprisingly it paired up nicely with Spaghetti but personally I think this would be perfect served as an appetizer with a dipping sauce. So with Superbowl around the corner, this sure will be a crowd pleasing appetizer!
