Champion Nutrition Recipe of the Week... Southwest Tacos

Each week I precook pounds and pounds of chicken for my protein, so I am always trying to come up with something new to do with it. Enter my tasty Southwest Tacos - which, by the way, are competition diet friendly
 ;-) Give 'em a try, and let me know what you think!!

Southwest Tacos
Recipe by Chelle Stafford
Makes 1 Taco

Use store-bought taco size tortillas, or try making your own! I have an easy recipe here (http://recipeforfitness.com/recipes/main_dish/taco_shell.html).

1 Taco size tortilla
4 oz shredded slow-cooker chicken (drained of liquid)
Shredded lettuce
1 Tbsp mashed black beans (or refried beans)
2 Tbsp Salsa
2 Tbsp plain greek yogurt
1 Tbsp reduced fat shredded Cheddar (or reduced fat crumbled feta)

In a small bowl, mix together the salsa and greek yogurt.
Spread beans over tortilla.
Top with shredded lettuce and chicken.
Drizzle salsa/yogurt mixture over tacos.
Top with 1 Tbsp cheese.

(Based on taco shell made with my recipe, adjust if using store-bought)
