Chicken Tacos with Fresh Mango Salsa
I've recently been trying to cook all the quick and healthy recipes I have. This one is at the top of the list!! We have "Taco Tuesday" at our house (once a week, of course) and this is my current favorite under that category. I love Mexican food, and especially when I can eat as much of it as I want (well, almost :))!
3-4 chicken breasts
1 Tb. olive oil
1/2 tsp. kosher salt
1/2 tsp. pepper
3/4 tsp. cumin
Mango Salsa (easy recipe found HERE)
corn tortilla shells
cotija cheese-- stronger cheese, so you need less as a topping.
Make Mango Salsa and set aside.
Heat olive oil over med-high heat in skillet. Add chicken. Let sit 3-5 minutes on each side. Cut with spatula to break up the breasts into smaller pieces. Add spices. Cook till no longer pink.
Cut chicken into desired size pieces. Add to Mango Salsa.
Warm up corn tortillas on stove. Put the chicken and salsa mixture into tortillas. Add cotija cheese. (Add any more desired toppings, but I like it just like this).
Serve with rice, beans, and limes.
