• Sometimes I get a craving for tacos. I have come to love corn tortillas for their small size and delicious flavor. Typically, I go for fajita tacos, shrimp tacos or pulled pork tacos. But I didn't have time for the crockpot and I only had enough energy for a simple meal. I had purchased a rotisserie chicken earlier yesterday (my second this week!) and decided that would work just fine. I pulled off chunks of meat, shredding them with a fork as I went, then threw it into a pan with some olive oil and seasonings and it turned out delish. Here's your quick-hit recipe for cheater tacos that taste like the real deal!

Ingredients

  • 2 cups shredded rotisserie chicken
  • 1 tbsp minced garlic (fresh or jar)
  • Lawry's seasoning salt
  • Salsa, whatever is your favorite
  • Black pepper
  • Olive oil
  • Black beans, 1 can
  • Shredded cheese
  • Corn tortillas
  • Half a lime
  • Avocado or guacamole, optional

CUISINE Mexican

Preparation

  1. Heat a pan over medium and add chicken then drizzle with about 1-2 tablespoons of extra virgin olive oil. Add garlic, squeeze in lime juice and season to taste with Lawry's and pepper. Add about 2 tablespoons of salsa, or at least enough to distribute throughout the chicken. Heat thoroughly. Heat black beans separately—add a couple dashes of hot sauce and a few leaves of fresh cilantro to really kick 'em into gear.
  2. Warm tortillas in the microwave for about 10-15 seconds, then build taco with chicken, beans, cheese and extra salsa if desired. Top with avocado or guacamole. (A squeeze of fresh lime juice and/or cilantro is good, too!)
