I haven’t posted a recipe for a while and these tacos are my kind of comfort food! You can use soft flour tortillas for these, but I prefer using soft pita bread. It holds up to the fillings well. I do not split them to use for this. Enjoy!
These soft tacos are great for a make-your-own-taco night with the kids or for easy, inexpensive entertaining. Football playoffs anyone?
Set out toppings that can include: salsa, guacamole, black beans, shopped tomatoes, black olives, sour cream, rice, shredded cheese, red pepper flakes, sliced tomatoes, sliced avocados, or whatever you like. Vegetarians can just omit the chicken.
From the reviews: (Everyone says to leave out the oregano.)
“EASY to make!!! I mixed all of the seasoning ingredients in a small bowl while the chicken was sauteing and just dumped it in the skillet and stirred the last 10 minutes of cooking. I used a teaspoon of oil while sauteing the chicken so it wouldn’t stick to the skillet.”
“added cilantro, extra lime, and served with some sliced peppers and onions which I stir-fried in olive oil and cumin (didn’t have lettuce). I think cumin or cilantro are definitely more appropriate seasonings rather than the oregano.”
“I love these as nachos on the tequila lime tortilla chips. I have even froze the cooked chicken mixture and it came out beautifully.”
“When I sauteed the chicken (strips not cubed), I dumped the marinade and added the last 1/3 of fresh marinade to the chicken as it was nearly done cooking through,” This person also added some cayenne pepper to give some bite that she thought was needed.
I hope you try these for an easy, yummy supper. It’s great party food, and the cooked chicken can be frozen ahead to make it even quicker. Just put out a taco bar of ingredients and let people make their own. Easy on the cook and popular with guests! Many reviewers said the recipe actually serves 4-5 people, not the 10 the recipe says. It makes 10 actual tacos if that helps you plan.
