Chili Out Chicken Taco

Man is restless by nature. Herein lies his greatest virtue and most tragic fault.  Evidently once one has, but tirelessly striving and endlessly toiling, reached the apex of success, he redoubles his effort to relentlessly tear down that which he has built.  My relationship with the Involuntary Taste Panel is strained.  Maybe tacos will help.

Tasting Notes:

According to Chili Jr. we hit on the optimal ratio of meat to non-meat- somewhere around 65:35. The spiciness of the chili chicken was in clear evidence but it did not wallop.  I’d have to admit that dark meat makes a better taco than does white meat.  Chili does not make a better olive branch.
