I love chicken tacos. I love playing with the seasonings, using different salsas, adding toppings, the whole thing. Taco night is my favorite night.
Chicken Soft Tacos:
1 package of boneless, skinless, chicken breast
2 tablespoons of Mexican Seasoning
juice of 1 lime (or lemon if you don't have the lime)
1 tablespoon olive juice
1 red onion, thinly sliced
1 jalapeno, seeded and diced
black olives (optional)
warmed black and/or pinto beans
soft taco shells
Take the chicken and either cut it into bite size cubes or into strips. Whichever you like. Put the chicken in a bag with the Mexican seasoning olive oil, and the lime juice. Let it marinate in the refrigerator for at least 20 minutes. When the chicken is finished marinating, cook in a skillet over medium/medium-high heat until cooked through and no longer pink. Depending on the size that the chicken has been cut into it could take 5-10 minutes.
The rest is just about laying. I tend to buy smaller taco shells, the ones labeled for fajitas. I know I'm going to eat 2 of them anyway, I might as well make 2 smaller ones.
Here's how I make a taco:
- layer of sour cream
- chicken pieces
- Cilantro Yogurt Sauce (when I'm feeling crazy)
Tacos are all about what you want to put on them. Add more, take away some, whatever. Go nuts.
