Easy Street Tacos

Was in a big hurry one night to make supper, so took some shortcuts to make tacos. We normally eat ground beef tacos, but all I had on hand was some canned chicken breast... turned out really good!

Prep:

25 Min

Cook:

5 Min

Ingredients

2 can(s)
(6 oz each) canned chicken breast, drained
1 pkg
taco seasoning mix
12
taco shells
8 oz
shredded cheese (e.g., colby-jack, cheddar)
2
limes, cut in quarters
2 c
lettuce, shredded
1 c
tomatoes, fresh, diced
1/2 c
onions, diced
1/2 c
picante sauce or salsa

Directions Step-By-Step

1
Add drained chicken to a small non-stick skillet and turn heat on low.
2
Add taco seasoning to chicken and stir gently until spices are evenly distributed. Add 1/2 cup of water and simmer on low while preparing/chopping toppings.
3
When ready to serve, place taco shells on a cookie sheet or in a baking pan and fill each shell with 2 tablespoons of the chicken mixture.
4
Top chicken with a splash of lime juice, shredded cheese and onion. Bake tacos in 350 degree oven for about 5 minutes (watch carefully, the shells will burn easily).
5
Remove tacos from oven, let cool a couple of minutes, then top with salsa, tomatoes, and lettuce. Can also add a dollop of sour cream, if desired.
6
Suggestion: Serve immediately with a side of Mexican rice, guacamole & chips, or chili beans.
