Description

These chicken tacos are a quick, healthy meal! The filling makes a tasty taco, or you can use it to top a salad. I like mine garnished with lettuce, cheese, salsa, sour cream and guacamole, but then you’ll have to rethink the healthy part!

Ingredients

  • 1 Tablespoon Canola Oil
  • 1 whole Medium Onion, Chopped
  • 1 clove Garlic, Minced
  • 1 can Tomato Sauce (8 Ounces)
  • ½ cups Water
  • 1 Tablespoon Chili Powder
  • 1 teaspoon Seasoned Salt (Lawry's)
  • ¼ teaspoons Ground Cumin
  • 1 dash Tabasco Sauce
  • 3-½ cups Cooked Chicken, Chopped
  • 10 whole Taco Shells Or Flour Tortillias

Preparation

Place canola oil in a large skillet over medium high heat. Add the chopped onion and garlic; saute’ until onion starts to soften and become translucent, about 5 minutes.

Reduce heat to medium and add the tomato sauce, water, spices, Tabasco and chicken; simmer for 8-10 minutes.

Heat taco shells or tortillas according to package directions, fill with chicken and add your favorite toppings!

I made this as dinner tonight for our burritos. Not only did I love the flavor, but also that it was a one pan dish and VERY simple to make. I doubled the recipe and now we look forward to enjoying it again tomorrow night. Thank you for giving my family another “go to” meal.

My husband’s palate is very sensitive when it comes to spices. He loves these tacos so much, that we are eating them for a second time tonight! That says a lot, believe me. Easy and quick to cook up for all you hard working parents. Great recipe!

I made this for dinner last night, and it was delicious. I threw in a little cilantro, but it was great even before that!

My husband (who, in general, has trouble following recipes) made this for dinner last night and it was loved by all. We like a little more heat, but our young children ate it all up as is. We’ll just add a dash or two more of hot sauce to our tacos next time. Easy and tasty!
