Recipe by: Frankie


1 pound boneless skinless chicken breast, cut into small cubes
1 TBSP olive oil
1 TBSP chili powder
1/2 tsp garlic powder
1/2 tsp ground cumin
salt & pepper
1 medium yellow onion, diced
1/4 cup water
12 taco-size flour tortillas
4 ounces sharp cheddar cheese, shredded
2 cups shredded lettuce
optional toppings: diced tomatoes, sliced jalapenos, sour cream, etc


1. Add the cubed chicken to a large mixing bowl, drizzle the olive oil on top and stir to coat all the chicken in oil. Sprinkle the chili powder, garlic, cumin, and 1/2 tsp salt on the chicken and stir again to evenly distribute the spices on the chicken.

2. Heat a dutch oven or large saute pan over medium heat. When the pan is hot add the seasoned chicken and onion to the pan. Cook, stirring occasionally, until onions are softened, about 10 minutes.

3. Stir in the water and bring to a boil over medium-high heat then reduce heat back to medium and simmer until most of the liquid has evaporated and the chicken is cooked through, about 5 more minutes.

4. Take the pan off the heat. Taste the chicken and season with additional salt & pepper if necessary.

5. Warm your tortillas and add the chicken filling, cheese, lettuce, and any other additional toppings.
