Vacation chicken tacos / chicken salads
One of the tastiest meals we have while vacationing is chicken tacos. It is so easy. The only hard part is chopping up the tomatoes, peppers, and cilantro. But that is really not so very hard, especially if you do it together.
But first, the chicken filling. Here are the ingredients:
4 chicken breasts, chopped
1 red bell pepper, chopped
4 green onions, chopped
1 package dry McCormick taco seasoning (which is gluten-free)
We drizzled the dish with olive oil, put in all the ingredients and tossed them with the taco seasoning. We popped them in the oven and baked on 350 degrees for approximately 35 minutes or until chicken is done.
Then we chopped up fresh cilantro, lettuce, jalapeño peppers, tomatoes, and avocado. We purchased a small package of Mexican blend cheese, then opened and warmed a can of refried beans.
We found boxes of extra large corn taco shells and loaded them up and we pour on taco sauce. They were quite yummy! And, on paper plates, of course.
This mixture was also used for taco salads. We just loaded our plates with all the chopped up veggies, topped with meat and beans, added cheese and taco sauce and had the perfect vacation meal. It is even better if eaten on the patio overlooking the beach.
