    Chef Sharon R's Note:

    The Chicken base recipe can also be used for chimichangas, enchiladas, or Mexican pizza. I mix a large batch and freeze in small quantities so I can whip up a quick meal. The chimichangas are a family favorite - see Chicken Chimichanga posting.

      I love this chicken base! So easy to make up & even more versatile to use! I used flour tortillas as that's just a family preference, but these tacos were amazing regardless, because of the base. It's got great flavor & that can be varied to suit any family's tastes. Using your favorite salsa. I made one full batch & split it in half. Made one half with one brand of salsa & the other with a different brand. Both were equally good but had different flavor combinations that set them apart. We also made the Chicken Chimichangas (Baked) you have posted. Thanks for sharing your recipes with us, Sharon! Made & enjoyed for Pick A Chef Spring 2009.
