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 time25 Min
cook time5 Min
(6 oz each) canned chicken breast, drained
taco seasoning mix
shredded cheese (e.g., colby-jack, cheddar)
limes, cut in quarters
tomatoes, fresh, diced
picante sauce or salsa
How To Make
Add drained chicken to a small non-stick skillet and turn heat on low.
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.
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.
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).
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.
Suggestion: Serve immediately with a side of Mexican rice, guacamole & chips, or chili beans.
