A Tasty Recipe for Healthy Chicken Tacos
You will need:
    8 corn tortillas
    1/2 teaspoon salt
    1 1/4 lbs boneless, skinless chicken breast, cubed
    1 red bell pepper, seeded and chopped
    1 yellow onion, chopped
    4 teaspoons canola oil or low fat spray oil
    1 cup low fat sour cream
    3 minced garlic cloves
    1 tablespoon cumin
    1 jalapeno pepper, de-seeded and minced
    1 cup salsa
    1/2 cup shredded low fat cheese
    1/4 cup chopped fresh cilantro
How to make it:
Pat the chicken on paper towels to dry it off. Heat half the oil in a skillet over a high heat and add the chicken. Brown it all over for 5 minutes, pouring off some of the liquid if the chicken starts to poach instead of browning. Remove the chicken from the pan.
Turn the heat down to medium and add the rest of the oil. Cook the onion in the oil until it is tender. Add the garlic, cumin, jalapeno, and bell pepper. Keep stirring, scraping any burnt bits off the bottom of the pan, cooking for about 4 minutes.
Put the tortillas on a plate and cover them with plastic wrap. Microwave them for a minute. Stir the salsa and chicken into the onion mixture and cook until everything is hot. Stir in the cilantro and spoon the taco filling into the warmed tortillas.
