Rotisserie Chicken Tacos

One of my favorite places in Mexico for a quick, fast-food style meal is a "Pollos Rostizados" type of restaurant...basically, rotisserie chicken.  The chicken is split into halves, after being cooked on the rotisserie.  It's served with an assortment of condiments, including chopped onion, chopped cilantro, tomato and lettuce, and limes to squeeze over the top.  Ketchup, and various salsas, are offered, as well, and a huge portion of papas fritas, or French fries.  A huge stack of corn tortillas, and you've got a great meal.  Pull chicken from the bones, fill your tortillas, and Yum!  Bien Rico!

The chicken isn't much different from Kenny Rogers Roasters, if you remember the numerous quantities of chickens on a rotiserrie.  While you don't get that same experience at the grocery store, a rotisserie chicken from the deli section of the store can be served in much the same way.  For the really quick meal solution, just get a chicken, and corn tortillas.  Two rotisserie chickens, a large bag of corn tortillas, and my household of 10 is fed a simple, fast-food style dinner, at much less cost than eating out.
