Spanish Soft Tacos

If only you could smell this...

I love the sweet/savory smell of spices sauteing in a skillet. The blend of onions, garlic and spices. How it fills your home and satisfies your sense of smell and makes you eager to eat in a few minutes when it is done. The joy of cooking.

The key to making this meal taste so good is the ingredients. When you have fresh ingredients, such as fresh cilantro and makes the flavor burst throughout the food and therefore makes your dinner taste better and your taste buds thank you. I even use fresh tortilla shells (that I buy from Costco) and cook them on a skillet before I use them. SO GOOD.


3-4 large chicken breasts
1 medium-large onion, chopped
2 tsp Paprika
1 tsp fresh minced garlic
1 tsp thyme leaves
1/4 tsp black pepper
1/4 tsp or 1/2 tsp crushed red pepper (how hot you want it)
2 Tb lime juice
Flour tortillas
Monterey Jack cheese, shredded
Romaine Lettuce, chopped
Avocado, chopped
Sour Cream

1 cups uncooked rice
1 cup salsa

In saucepan, cook 2 cups rice with 1 cup water and 1 cup salsa. Cook until tender and done.

Cook chicken in skillet with onions and spices. Cook until done and starting to brown. Add lime juice and cook 2 minutes longer. Remove and set aside.

Heat tortillas on warm skillet.

Assemble. Tortilla. Rice. Chicken. Cheese. Lettuce. Avocado. Sour Cream. Enjoy!
