Soft Chicken Tacos


So lately we've been eating a LOT of roast chicken. Its cheap... its easy.. and it means leftovers. Although the leftovers usually end up in the form of a chicken salad sandwich... tonight I decided to use it up for chicken tacos.

Good news by the way! We sold the old house... so after we recoup and catch back up, we should be able to eat "normal" again! Yay!

Anyhoo... I whipped these up tonight from what was sitting round in the fridge, quite yummy I must say! :)

2 shredded cooked chicken breasts
half a small Mexican Churizo sausage
1 small yellow onion, diced
1 can diced fire roasted tomatoes
1 chopped jalepeno
1 tablespoon chili powder
1/4 teaspoon garlic powder
1/4 teaspoon onion powder
1/4 teaspoon crushed red pepper flakes
1/4 teaspoon dried cilantro
1/2 teaspoon paprika
1 1/2 teaspoons ground cumin

heat oil over med-high heat. Once hot, add the churizo until it begins to brown, smooshing it up. Add onions and sautee until they are transluscent. Add spices. Add tomatoes and simmer for 5 mins. Reduce to low, add chicken, cover and leave for about 10 minutes, or until the chicken is heated through.

Serve in warm corn tortillas, with guac, lettuce sour cream, shredded cheese and several generous drops of Cholula.
