dairy free salsa verde chicken tacos

my girlfriend sent me a recipe that looked really easy and delicious but it had dairy in it so I tried substituting with kite hill's almond milk cream cheese and while I have no idea what the other recipe tastes like this one was bomb! So sooooo good and had a kick to it. I also added chicken thighs instead of chicken breast since breast are always more watery which I don't love. Anyway, I hope your enjoy this one!

We sure did!

 I used Siete's crispy tacos of course! 

Any Salsa Verde will do. I'm pretty sure the one pictured is only local to Austin.
