It’s no secret that I love Costco. The prices, the quantities, the convenience. What’s not to like? When I saw that Costco had released a ready-made street taco kit, I was sold. Costco AND tacos? DONE. (Little known fact: I got engaged wearing a “Tacos on my mind” shirt!)
So, what’s the verdict? The Hubs and I agree: it’s not bad. Here’s how it rates out of 5 🌮:
Overall: 🌮🌮🌮 Super easy to make, super easy to clean up. The flavors were a little lacking, however. Not the best tacos I’ve ever had, but I would definitely get this again!
Convenience: 🌮🌮🌮🌮🌮 Minimal cooking, just heat up the chicken and tortillas, and you’re set.
Flavor: 🌮🌮🌮. The chicken had a strong chipotle flavor, which I usually enjoy, but was a bit overwhelming and bordering on burnt tasting. The Cilantro Lime Crema, though…Mmm-mmm. Deeeeeelish!
Fixins’: 🌮🌮 I docked points because they included lettuce. LETTUCE DOES NOT BELONG ON TACOS, PEOPLE.
So, for our tacos, I heated ⅓ cup chicken per taco up in a non-stick skillet with a little bit of oil and warmed up the tortillas on a griddle. ⅓ cup turned out to be the perfect amount, so go me!
The Hubs (traitor) added some lettuce to his tacos and topped with the crema, salsa, some avocado that we had on hand, cheese, and some lime juice. I went a little rogue and spread the crema on the tortilla, then added the chicken, salsa, avocado, and cheese. Drizzle a little lime on top, and it makes for a super simple, super quick meal. Done and done.
