How to Make Green Chile Chicken Tacos!

Step-by-Step

  • 1I purchase precooked chickens from the deli, so mucgh easier to pull apart and dice but you can cook your own. You can get about 3 cups per cooked chicken for the recipe.
  • 2Heat a skillet with just 2 tbs of oil and one pat of butter heat on medium high heat.
  • 3In the meantime dice an onion, mince three garlic cloves.
  • 4Add the onion and garlic to the hot skillet ( I use cast iron). Stir as needed until it begins to brown.
  • 5Dice chicken to edible bites for taco shells
  • 6Add the can of geen chile sauce to the onion and garlic and let it simmer for 5 minutes so the flavors mingle. At this time you can add a can of diced green chiles or 1/3 cup of white rice (cooked)Allow to cook through about 5 to 10 minutes.
  • 7Add the cooked chicken and stir. Turn on low and cover allow the mix to simmer about 5 minutes, stir and recover. Turn the heat off at this time, but keep covered for the flavors to meld, I rarely add salt but at this point do so, since the chicke was precooked there usually is enough salt already.
  • 8Keep your chicken tacos warm while you prepare the toppings and taco shells. I setup buffet style and serve with black beans, rice and green onion. Oh so delish!!!
