I had a busy day and came up with this easy recipe for soft tacos. It's good, fast and inexpensive. I usually make two at a time but if you have a tortilla warmer, that will make it easier for everyone to eat at the same time.

  1. Remove chicken meat and make into bite size pieces, place in a 10-12" skillet.
  2. Add salsa to the chicken and simmer on low for 10-15 minutes.
  3. Place lettuce, tomatoes and sour cream into individual bowls and set aside.
  4. Place two tortillas in a brown lunch bag,.
  5. close tightly and microwave for 30 seconds.
  6. Place 2 tortillas on a plate and add ingredients in any order you like. There is no real way to make a taco.
  7. While the first person is making their tacos, heat the second person's tortillas, and so on. This way everyone's food is hot. If you have a tortilla warmer, that would work great.

This made for a great lunch! Only problem... thought I had salsa ... and didn't!! Had to make do with diced tomatoes (added some crushed red pepper) - will make again for sure with the real thing!! Used light sour cream and some shredded light mozzarella. Thanks Queen! :)
