Chicken Soft Tacos

 
Chicken Soft Tacos One of my favorite “fast foods,” chicken soft tacos are a snap to prepare on a weeknight. Really all you’re doing is assembling a few great ingredients. You can customize them to your family’s tastes and let your children build their own. Pulled pork would be a great substitute for chicken, or keep
them vegetarian and bulk up on the beans! And parents, don’t forget a cold mexican beer to wash these down.

1 tsp garlic powder 1 tsp ground cumin
1/2 tsp chipotle chile powder 2 boneless, skinless half chicken breasts (about 6 oz each)

3 tbsp chicken broth, low sodium 8 (6-inch) corn tortillas
1/2 cup salsa (pico de gallo, tomatillo) 1/4 cup reduced fat sour cream
1/2 cup shredded reduced-fat 4-cheese mexican blend cheese 2 cups shredded iceburg lettuce
1 lime, cut into 8 wedges

Preparation

 
Preheat oven to 350°.

Combine first 3 ingredients in a medium bowl. Sprinkle chicken with 1 1⁄4 teaspoons spice mixture. Place chicken on a foil-lined baking sheet coated with cooking spray. 

Bake at 350° for 30 minutes or until done. Cool slightly. Chop chicken into bite-size pieces.

While chicken bakes, add beans and chicken broth to remaining spice mixture in bowl; mash with a potato masher until blended. Place bean mixture in a small skillet coated with cooking spray. Cook, stirring frequently, over medium heat 2 to 3 minutes or until thoroughly heated.

Warm tortillas according to package directions. Spread about 2 tablespoons bean mixture over each tortilla top each with about 3 tablespoons chicken, 1 tablespoon salsa, 1 1⁄2 teaspoons sour cream, 1 tablespoon cheese, and 1⁄4 cup lettuce. Fold in half. Serve with lime wedges.
