Chicken Tacos

Prep time: 15 minutes Serves: 4-6 or however much you decide to make

Another easy one for you that you can do any time of the year and it is healthy, easy to transport if needed, and yummy!

There is one catch though----the thing that makes this for me is the salsa. You can choose your own but I really like the Trader Joe’s Tomato-less Corn salsa. It has a little kick and is sweet at the same time and really makes these tacos more than just chicken in a tortilla.


Tortillas (corn, or white corn best--- or small flour if prefer)
2 Chicken breasts, cooked and cut into strips
Cilantro- chopped
Tomatoes – chopped (I threw some diced jalapeno in mine for some extra flavor)
1 can Black beans, rinsed
Optional: corn (if not already in your salsa)

Salt and Pepper and cook the chicken (Foreman grill makes it easy), let it sit for a few minutes and then cut into strips. Place in a bowl
Wash and chop the cilantro. Place in bowl.
Wash, and chop the tomatoes. Place in bowl. ( Are you catching a theme here?)
Open, rinse, drain the black beans. Place in bowl.
Open corn salsa. Add spoon.
Heat the tortillas.
Make a fruit salad or rice salad or some side.
Assemble and enjoy!

If you are transporting this just throw each ingredient into a baggie or Tupperware and have the recipient heat the tortillas right before eating.

The color alone in this meal will draw you in and make you wish for sun and fun!
