Old El Paso

Ingredients

  • 2 tablespoons vegetable oil
  • 3 boneless skinless chicken breasts (about 1.25 lbs)
  • 1 package (1 oz) Old El Paso™ taco seasoning mix
  • 1 Old El Paso™ Soft Tortilla Bowls
  • 1 can (4.5 oz) Old El Paso™ chopped green chiles
  • 2 ripe avocados, peeled, pitted and diced
  • 1/2 cup sour cream

Steps

  • 1
    In 10-inch stainless steel or cast iron skillet, heat 2 tablespoons vegetable oil over medium-high heat until oil is hot. Add chicken and cook 2 minutes on each side to brown chicken. Add 2 tablespoons water, sprinkle both sides of chicken with taco seasoning, and loosely cover skillet with foil or lid. Cook an additional 3 minutes, flipping chicken if necessary.
  • 2
    While chicken is cooking in skillet, warm taco shells and gather toppings. Remove cooked chicken from skillet and thinly slice. Fill tortillas with chicken, chiles, avocado and sour cream

  • Add diced fresh tomatoes.
  • Adding a little water during cooking keeps the chicken extra moist and keeps the pan and chicken from burning; don't be afraid of using medium-high to high heat; it will add a nice sear to the chicken breasts to lock in the flavor and help to get dinner on the table in ten minutes flat.
