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!

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

    picante sauce or salsa

How to Make Easy Street Tacos

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.
