Shredded Buffalo Chicken Tacos

Let’s face it, no one can keep the pounds off. They try, but can’t. It’s just not possible. This is the story of my weight loss journey, and my time as the fat girl. The journey started roughly 8 years ago when I decided I wanted to be a little healthier. I began a fad diet, which I lost a little weight, then gained some again. I continued this cycle about 6 more times. Each time I thought to myself “I will never let myself gain weight again” but it always happened. Then, I started to gain weight.

We have all found it hard to get in shape, and sometimes we just don’t have the time to spend hours in the gym doing our workouts. That’s why I created Shredded Buffalo Chicken Tacos. These tacos are full of lean proteins and vegetables that will keep you full and satisfied.

Once I made my first shredded buffalo chicken tacos, I was hooked. They are a perfect combination of savory and spicy with the perfect serving of creamy avocado and bright relish. The trick to keeping these tacos healthy and under 300 calories is to make your own tortilla. You can buy them pre-made, but they aren’t as good. The homemade tortilla has much more flavor and texture.

Dinner is ready in 20 minutes with just five ingredients! Our Shredded Buffalo Chicken Tacos are great for a quick weekday supper, whether you have time to sit and eat or you have to throw-and-go! For a delicious and easy dinner, this dish blends the convenience of precooked shredded chicken with the spicy flavor of chicken wings.


We strive to keep things fresh as much as possible since that’s simply our style. That doesn’t mean we don’t sometimes browse the precooked area! This bag of shredded chicken came into our path and has proven to be a lifesaver. When I come home from substitute teaching at 4:00 p.m. and have to be at soccer at 5:30 p.m., I don’t have a lot of time to cook. This dish helps me feel like I’m cooking a delicious and distinctive supper on the fly that’s also easy and stress-free!

What’s the best side dish with buffalo chicken?

You may serve our Shredded Buffalo Chicken Tacos with a variety of other sides.

Choices, options, options!

What is the origin of the name “buffalo sauce”?

Buffalo wings are said to have originated in Buffalo, New York, with most culinary historians claiming that they were originally served at the Anchor Bar there. That tavern was owned by a couple called Frank and Teressa Bellissimo, who bought it in 1939. Buffalo wings are usually served hot, with celery and carrot sticks for dipping in blue cheese dressing.
