Smoky Rotel Chicken Tacos

Cheat day and Taco Tuesday! Smoky Rotel Chicken Tacos, creamy Refried Beans and Cantina Salsa Rice. I go whole hog on my cheat days. I made sure to make enough chicken for tomorrow’s Cinco de Mayo Enchiladas and some to munch on as a little late night snack.  

  • Chicken:
    • 2 large Chicken Breasts
    • 1 can Spicy Rotel
    • 1 can Green Chiles
    • 2 cloves Garlic; minced
    • 1 teaspoon Ancho Chile Powder
    • 1/2 cup Bell Peppers; chopped
    • Salt to taste
  • Tacos:
    • 6 Blue Corn Tortillas
    • 1 cup Pico de Gallo
    • 1/2 cup White Onion; chopped
    • 1/2 cup Cotija Cheese
    • 1/4 cup Cilantro; chopped

  1. Heat a dutch oven over medium-high heat and add the chicken ingredients. Once the mixture starts to bubble, cover and reduce heat to medium-low. Simmer for 1 hour, stirring occasionally.
  2. Add a damp paper towel to a tortilla warmer and heat a skillet or griddle over medium heat. Sear the tacos until pliable and place in a tortilla warmer, covering with the damp paper towel until all the tortillas are ready. 
  3. Shred the chicken and add it and your desired toppings to the tortillas.
  4. Enjoy!
