Hey there! Are you looking for an easy but delicious recipe for dinner tonight? Today, I am sharing one of our family’s favorites. We could eat these at least once a week! They are quick to prep and require minimal clean-up. Perfect for a busy weeknight!
First, a little background on the recipe…Last summer, Mr. Kriegerchick came home from work telling me about these delicious tacos he had eaten for lunch that day at an authentic Mexican restaurant. So good, that he proceeded to dissect them and recreate the same dish for dinner. (Adapted for our tastes.) He is notorious for doing this and creating new family favorites!
One word described the tacos…Yum! And we have been making them ever since…
Cilantro Lime Chicken Soft Tacos
Chicken (breast or thigh, Approx. 2 cups, but your family may need more)
fresh cilantro, chopped
shreddded cheese (Mexican blend)
sour cream or Greek yogurt
Small flour tortillas
Cook your chicken breast and season with taco seasoning. While chicken is cooking, prep all your other ingredients. I just set mine up like a taco bar and everyone can make their own.
For tortillas, Spray a small skillet with cooking spray and heat each side on Med low heat until very lightly golden. Do not cook too long or tortillas will be crispy and will be difficult to roll.
How I make mine…You can pile on whatever ingredients you like, but this is the combination we like best. Spread sour cream on the middle of the warmed tortilla, Add warm chicken, cheese, diced onion, cilantro and salsa. Then Squeeze a sliced lime over the top.
You will not be able to eat just one. Serve with chips and salsa or guacamole. Enjoy!
Note: I typically cook quite a bit of chicken and freeze it to make dinner prep quicker, substitute sour cream with Greek yogurt, and prepare my own taco seasoning so it is salt-free. Our family favorite salsa is the fresh salsa from Sam’s Club and we love On The Border brand Cantina Thins tortilla chips.
