I Cooked: Chicken Soft Tacos

Tonight’s meal needed to be quick, easy and relatively healthy.  So I asked my husband if he’d prefer to eat chicken stir fry or chicken soft tacos for dinner.  “No delivery Chinese?” he asked.  “No handsome, I don’t have any cash” I replied.  He thought for a moment and said “Soft tacos!  It sounds exotic.”


  • 2 boneless skinless chicken breasts, sliced or cubed
  • 1 onion, sliced
  • 1/2 Tbsp ground cumin
  • 3/4 Tbsp chili powder
  • 3/4 Tbsp garlic powder
  • Salt and pepper to taste
  • Shredded cheese (whatever looks good to you.  I used sharp cheddar)
  • Corn tortillas
  • Salsa
  • 1 can of Beans (whatever looks good to you. I used black and added some of the spices above)


  1. Cook the chicken, onion and spices in a pan over medium-high heat until the chicken is done.
  2. While it’s cooking, heat the beans according to the package directions.
  3. Put the chicken and onion mixture, beans, cheese and salsa in your corn tortillas.
  4. Serve with a huge salad and maybe some veggies.

This was super easy to make and is actually something we do on a regular basis.  We just change out the meat, use different beans, add other toppings, etc.  It’s also fun to make ahead of time as a packable lunch.  Just put a serving of the meat/bean/cheese mixture in some Tupperware.  Heat in the microwave, top with some salsa and serve with a side of tortilla chips. My husband and I jokingly call them “Ghetto Nachos”.  They sure do hit the spot and are a guilty pleasure when you’re stuck in a rut of sandwiches and salads.



  1. mm.. food.

  2. Ha! We’re having chicken stirfry tonight.
