Luvo Hack: Natalie’s Chicken Chile Verde Street-Style Tacos

Experts say that if you want to get a wide variety of nutrients in your diet, you should make sure the food on your plate is colorful. That’s because different nutrients impart different colors in your food. For example, purple cabbage gets its vibrant hue from antioxidants that help keep your heart healthy and your brain sharp – both essential for maintaining optimal athletic performance.

That’s why I love this Luvo hack! Take the already wholesome Chicken Chile Verde entrée and amp up the nutrients by adding a fresh and flavorful purple cabbage slaw. This recipe also comes in handy when you’re craving those classic street tacos but there’s no taco truck in sight…

    I was planning on making this tonight, but I have just realized I obviously wasn’t paying attention when I read the recipe. No where does it say how many tacos it makes/how many people it serves. Help!

    1. Hi Tamara, you get 2 tacos per box of luvo (this recipe makes 4) ^ollie
