Spicy Chicken Tacos – natually gluten-free

I’ve become quite proficient at making something from nothing.  When Hubbs says “there’s no food in the house”, I can always surprise him with something delicious.  Last night it was Spicy Chicken Tacos!  This was a fresh, crisp, healthy dinner seemingly made from “nothing”.

What we have here is a white corn tortilla.  (I find that the white corn tortillas have a softer texture than the yellow corn tortillas.)  First came the brown rice.  Then spicy chicken, corn, lettuce, avocado, cheese and tomato.  MMMMM.

Make your chicken spicy:  I took one chicken breast and pan fried it in a little bit of olive oil and a lot of roasted garlic.  Once the chicken was almost cooked through, I chopped it before throwing it back in the pan to finish cooking.  I then added 5 or 6 shakes of tabasco sauce, some chilli powder and black pepper.  You can add more or less of the spices and tabasco depending on how spicy you like your chicken.

TIPS:  Always keep tortillas and a can of diced tomatoes in the house, they are a base for anything taco related.  And thankfully for us… you can put almost anything in a taco and call it good.


Happy Cooking!
