ancho chicken tacos With Cilantro Slaw

Serves 4.

Note: Although there are many ways to warm tortillas, if you have a gas stovetop, consider this: Heat them over the gas flame for a slightly charred flavor. To do this, place one tortilla directly on each burner, over the flames. Once the tortilla is slightly blackened (about 5 seconds), use tongs to flip it and toast on the other side. Then wrap the tortillas in a kitchen towel to keep warm. From “Cooking Light Pick Fresh Cookbook.”
