Open Taco Fiesta | Quick Dinner Recipe


It is no secret that I am crazy about going all out for  Saturday night dinners!!! I mean, what is a Saturday Night sensation if it doesn’t make your tastebuds scream?

I came up with this open taco recipe in less than 10 minutes but it left an impression that lasted way more than 10 minutes. It is not every day that I say my recipes are easy. This recipe is easy. I promise.

You have to try it out!


  • 12 taco sized tortillas 
  • 4 boiled chicken breasts shredded 
  • 1/2 cup bbq sauce
  • 1/2 cup tomato sauce
  • 2 tbsp syrup
  • 1 teaspoon black pepper
  • 1 cup cooked peas
  • 1 cup milk
  • 3 tbsp plain flour
  • 2 tsp salt
  • 2 cups shredded cabbage 
  • 4 tbsp mayonnaise  
  • 3 large carrots cut into long sticks
  1. In a microwaveable bowl, place the shredded chicken, bbq sauce, tomato sauce, syrup and black pepper and mix.
  2. Place the bowl in the microwave for 5 minutes.
  3. In a saucepan  , place the milk , plain, and salt and whisk.
  4. Place the saucepan on the stove and let the milk mixture heat up on high heat until the consistency is thick. This should take about 8 minutes. Stir continuously with the whisk to avoid lumps forming.
  5. When the milk mixture is now thick, add in the peas and stir before removing the saucepan from the stove.
  6. Place the shredded cabbage and  mayonnaise in a medium bowl and mix until the cabbage is well coated.
  7. To assemble the tacos, place a tablespoon full of the chicken in one corner and repeat that with the peas, carrots and coleslaw.
  8. Do that for all the tacos and dinner will be ready to serve!
