  • Summary

    If you're following the #cook90 initiative and made Crispy Chicken and Potatoes With Cabbage Slaw, these tacos are a delicious and clever use of "nextovers" (what we call leftovers transformed into a new dish the next day). Warming the chicken in tangy tomatillo salsa and topping it with bright cabbage slaw brings it back to life, and the super-fast, garlicky beans round out the meal.

    Ingredients

    • 4 cooked chicken thighs from Crispy Chicken and Potatoes With Cabbage Slaw or about 2 cups shredded chicken
    • 1 cup good-quality tomatillo salsa
    • 2 tablespoons vegetable oil
    • 1 garlic clove, pressed or finely chopped
    • 1 1/4 cups cooked or 1 (15-ounce) can low-sodium black beans, drained
    • 1/4 tsp. kosher salt
    • 4 corn tortillas
    • 1 avocado, sliced
    • 1/2 cup leftover slaw from Crispy Chicken and Potatoes With Cabbage Slaw, optional
    • Chopped cilantro, lime wedges, and hot sauce (for serving)
