Taco Tuesday, Thursday or any day

Here is a quick and easy meal to cook on a Tuesday, Wednesday or any day. I love a quick and easy meal something that is back to basics and super easy. I also love when I can get my family involved in cooking our dinner. So last night Miss J, my sweet hubby and I made tacos as a team. I Made the Chicken and sliced the tomatoes and lettuce, My sweet hubby shredded the cheese while miss J Microwaves the frozen corn Tortillas. You might ask why we keep them frozen vs. fresh. That’s because when you go to steam in microwave they will steam fresh and still be very moist. 

Taco Ingredients:
1/4 cup Olive Oil
2 lbs chicken tenders chopped into small pieces
2 Tablespoons Taco Mix
1 Tablespoon Garlic Powder
Corn Tortillas FROZEN
½ cup shredded lettuce
½ cup chopped tomatoes
½ cup grated cheddar cheese
Salsa for garnish

Warm oil in large frying pan or wok. Take Chicken Tenders and chop into small pieces prior to cooking.
Once Oil is warm place chicken in and season with Taco Seasoning.
Then Garlic Powder.
Cook until throughly cooked through about 15 min or so.

While cooking grate cheese, Shred lettuce and Chip tomatoes.
Take frozen tortillas out of package and wrap in damp paper towel. Next Microwave Frozen tortillas for about 20 seconds then flip over and go another 25 seconds. Take Meat and Place on  steamed tortillas
Next cover with cheese
Cover with Lettuce, Sprinkle with tomatoes and salsa. fold up like this!

Bon Appetit and Enjoy
