Tex-Mex food is spicy and delicious and is a common meal preparation for our family. Mexico is only 65 miles from us and it's culture is a definite influence on our way of cooking. Making taco's is second nature to me and as easy as 1,2,3. Chicken is a nice substitute for beef and I am sure you will agree that these Chicken taco's are delicioso!

How to Make Shelia's Tex-Mex Chicken Taco's

Step-by-Step

  1. To soft fry tortillas: heat oil on medium high, insert one corn tortilla in hot oil, count to 3 and turn to other side. Count to 3 and remove to a plate with paper towels. Continue until all tortillas have been soft fried. Lay each tortilla on clean paper towel and blot with another to remove most of the oil.
  2. Put the shredded chicken along with the broth, cumin, and garlic powder, salt and pepper, into saucepan and stir until liquid is diminished, approximately 5 minutes.
  3. Lay tortilla in plate and spoon a tablespoon or two of chicken into center and roll up the tortilla. Lay salad ingredients on top. Add condiments to the top of the salad ingredients and serve.

    NOTE: In separate bowls, serve these condiments to choose from, refried beans, grated cheese, salsa, Jalapeno peppers, hot sauce, and sour cream.
