Recipe by: Frankie


1 TBSP olive oil
1 pound boneless skinless chicken breast
salt & pepper
1 TBSP butter
1 small yellow onion, finely chopped
1 tsp garlic powder
1 tsp cumin
1 TBSP chili powder
1/2 cup water
10 flour tortillas, warmed
4 ounces sharp cheddar cheese, shredded
Assorted toppings such as shredded lettuce, tomatoes, jalapenos, sour cream, etc.


1. Heat the oil in a saute pan over medium heat. Generously season the chicken with salt & pepper. When the oil is hot add the chicken to the pan and cover the pan with a lid. Cook the chicken until browned on each side and cooked through, about 7 minutes per side. Transfer the chicken to a cutting board and set aside.

2. Add the butter to the pan and melt over medium heat. When the butter is melted add the onions and cook until softened, about 3 minutes, stirring occasionally.

3. Chop the cooked chicken into small pieces and add to the pan with the onion. Stir in the garlic powder, cumin, chili powder and 1/4 tsp salt. Pour in the water and scrape the bottom of the pan with a wooden spoon to release any stuck on bits. Cook, stirring occasionally, until most of the liquid is gone, about 5 minutes. Season with salt and pepper to taste.

4. Serve tortillas with the chicken, cheese and any other assorted toppings.
