Who Loves Tacos? We do and so will you after trying Chef HK's primal taco recipe!
Here is her step by step recipe from her blog.
Roast a whole chicken in a slow cooker.
Season the whole chicken however you like, but salt and pepper at a minimum. Coarsely chop a couple of carrots, celery stalks, and and onion and put it in the bottom of your crock pot. Put the chicken on top of the veggies, breast side up.
Put the cooker on low and cook for 6 to 8 hours, depending on the size of the bird.
When it's done, eat what you want immediately, and then shred the rest for TACOS!
These tacos have 5 steps:
Make your taco shell thingy. Google "Paleo Tortilla" and you'll find a bunch. The recipe I like uses primarily arrowroot powder and eggs, but there are tons of variations. Make a big batch and freeze some for later.
Make creme fraiche. This is only if you want dairy. Fermenting dairy makes it better. Also, it requires a couple of days, so you can just use sour cream if your eat dairy. If you want to make your own, pour a quart of heavy cream into a stainless bowl, whisk in 1/2 cup of cultured buttermilk. Cover it with plastic wrap and let it sit for 24-48 hours. The colder your house, the longer it needs to sit (it's much quicker in summer than in winter). When it thickens noticeably, whisk it up, put it in the fridge, and let it sit another 12 hours. Done. Don't tell the health department you left the cream out. It keeps for a couple of weeks in your fridge. When it starts to smell like a musty paper towel, toss it and vow to eat it more quickly next time.
Shred lettuce. This needs no further instruction. Pick a good lettuce, not some wimpy iceberg head.
Make your chicken taco mix. Saute some chopped onions in a pan with a little coconut oil until they start to blacken. Really bring the heat, because the heat brings the flavor. Add the chicken, and then season with ground cumin, coriander, and chipotle powder. Adjust it to your taste preference. Add salt and pepper if needed as well.
Chop your green onions. You can keep these growing in a window sill. You literally can buy them one more time, and then never again for the rest of your life. More on that in a future blog post.
Assemble your taco(s) with the desired ratio ingredients and chow down!
