Another one from my forthcoming Haute & Healthy collection. Open-flame grilling takes these boring soft taco shells to crisp-chewy in only a few minutes. If you are NOT a person who has all day to chop, buy salsa and pre-shredded lettuce to save time.

Combine heated brown rice and black beans with fresh cilantro and a squeeze of lime.
Heat tortillas over open flame on a gas stove on low heat. Use tongs and flip frequently until nicely crisped (be careful not to burn). If you don’t have a gas stove, reheat tortillas according to package directions.
Warm chicken breast strips in the microwave according to directions. If you have time, you can start with fresh chicken breasts - fresh is always a little better but these are still great.
Stuff warm chicken breast strips into warm tortilla. Add lettuce, avocado and salsa. Top with chopped cilantro and squeeze a lime wedge over it.
As a final touch, drizzle Chipotle-flavored Tobasco sauce (careful - hot!).
Enjoy with black beans and rice on the side (or add them to the tacos).
1 serving = 2 tacos + the extra fillings that don't fit the two tacos
