Chicken Tacos

I think that one of my favorite things to eat are quite simply, tacos.  I love a street style taco and will almost always try a new taco truck or stand that I drive by.  My favorite has to be lengua tacos.  Most Americans don’t like this and my family fits into that group.  So tonight as a part of my goal to eat cheap this week, I made chicken tacos out of the leftover rotisserie chicken from last night.

Start off by sautéing some onion.  Man do I love some onion.

Chop up your leftover chicken or if you are using fresh just chop it up bite sized.

My secret ingredient to chicken tacos is adobo chipotle peppers.  I have one left over from chili night so here it is, all chopped up ready for chicken taco glory.

Now take your package of taco seasoning, add a cup of water, and your adobo chipotle chili.  Simmer for about 15 minutes.

I like beans and these were on sale for 50 cents.  I will be able to keep the fleas out of the bed tonight!

Once your chicken is done, assemble your tacos.  I like some cheddar cheese and sour cream with my chicken tacos.  I also garnish with some green onion.  If I had cilantro on hand, I would have used that.  Enjoy!
