Too much shredded chicken...ideas?

CarmenR | May 31, 2010 07:40 PM

I vastly underestimated the amount of shredded chicken 10 legs/thighs would make (hint- its a lot) and now I have a tupperware full of "mexican" seasoned shredded chicken and im already out of ideas. It's got cumin, chili powder, salt, etc...generally a decently spiced but not hot rub. I've already made about 15 tacos, some enchiladas and a burrito and im burnt out on tortilla derivatives... any other ideas?! I was thinking a chicken tortilla soup, but I've never made that before and I dont know how this pre-seasoned, pre-salted chicken would fare.

Additionally, I'd LOVE suggestions for stuff that can be made and eaten cold- I don't own a microwave and don't have a microwave at work, so anything I can bring for work lunches is ideal (the soup idea might not be great for this.) I regularly have this problem with all of my slow-cooked foods (pulled chicken/pulled pork esp) and often end up just throwing them on a salad but that doesn't seem the best use of this sometimes labor-intensive "ingredient"...
