I think I have left you hanging long enough… After hinting at a recipe that I have been working on for a while and giving you snippets, or mini-recipes for the components, we have finally come to the main event.  Mini Asian Tacos!

The first snippet and main component to the tacos is my Slow Cooker Lemongrass Chicken!

Prepare slow cooker lemongrass chicken with minimal effort and have lots of shredded meat on hand for your next recipe. This chicken has a hint of garlic and the subtle flavor of citrus thanks to the lemongrass! Slow Cooker Lemongrass Chicken Recipe | Take Two Tapas

The chicken is the main attraction, but what would a star be without backup dancers?

A great addition to the tacos is a tart, crunchy, and pickled red cabbage slaw!

To top off the whole ensemble…

A Cilantro Ginger Avocado Cream Dressing!

 This delicious dressing is filled with bright cilantro, spicy ginger, creamy avocado, and is great as a dressing or as a dip! Top your tacos with it too! Cilantro Ginger Avocado Cream Recipe | Take Two Tapas

The whole combination will blow your mind!

Bake a few taco shells and it’s off you go!  All of the components can be made ahead of time, eaten by themselves or with other recipes, and assemble quickly for a great appetizer or dinner!

Tacos shells made with Won Ton wrappers is a new thing.  Instead of frying them, you brush them with a little olive oil and bake them in the oven.  I looked for small corn taco shells and never found any.  

I was about to buy the raw corn tortillas and cut them but that seemed like a waste of the rest of the tortilla.  Unless I made Migas:)  When I bought the wrappers for my Grandma Machie’s Gyoza recipe, I looked at them and thought that if I could bend them in half, I would have the perfect sized taco shell.  Only it wasn’t corn!  What do I do about that?

Make Asian tacos instead!  These Asain tacos make a great twist on the traditional tacos in the sense that all the ingredients have a slight Asian flair!  I love that all these components are made separately and then assembled when you need them.  Anything made in the slow-cooker is a great way to start a meal.  Minimal effort and lots of taste:)
