Time for a Recipe! Chicken Tacos!


I created this taco recipe last month.  It’s a keeper!

Chicken Tacos

3 chicken breast halves, cooked and diced or shredded

1/2 green pepper, chopped

1/2 red pepper, chopped

1 onion, chopped

1 garlic clove, minced

1 t cumin

1 t paprika

1/2-1 t chili powder, depending on how hot you like it and how hot your chili powder is!

1/2 t salt

pinch cayenne pepper

1/3 cup water

1/3 cup salsa

*optional – diced fresh pineapple

Saute the green pepper, red pepper, onion, garlic clove, and chicken in a bit of oil on medium-high heat until the vegetables are tender.  Add seasonings, water, and salsa and cook on medium heat about 5 to 10 minutes longer, until meat is nice and flavored throughout.  If desired, add diced fresh pineapple for a sweet, mysterious punch!

Serve in soft tortilla shells (or hard taco shells if you prefer) and layer with toppings:  cheese, lettuce, tomato, salsa, sour cream and whatever else your heart desires!

As always, enjoy!  ~smile~
