Taco Chicken w/Sour Cream
  Re: (...)
Does anyone know how to make the shredded chicken that comes in a La Cazuela Taco Loco salad? It seems to have sour cream mixed up with it, but I'm not sure. I've done a web search and can't find a copycat recipe or anything.

O.K., question - what is a "La Cazuela Taco Loco"? An eatery?
Retired and having fun writing cookbooks, tasting wine and sharing recipes with all my friends.

Yes, it's a chain and it may be primarily in the southeast. Anyway, it's a standard taco salad, and the chicken on it is shredded and mixed in a dressing that seems to have sour cream and maybe some spices in it. I'm thinking of just testing until I figure it out (or asking them at the restaurant) but figured I'd check here first.

Kinda outta my geographical region---but if you're really stuck, I may be able to have an answer from a chef in Scottsdale--"friend"of my daughter's and runs a really up-market place there. Let me know--happy to help.

It's the same chain as El Toro and a few others used to be. They all have that Taco Loco, and it's so good. I think I'll go into La Cazuela here one night and ask if they'll just tell me. Or I'll try it and guess.. I've done that before with success...
