This recipe is super easy, and I decided to do street tacos because they are fun!

What is a street taco?

Street tacos are usually much smaller than the typical “American” taco and is also on soft corn tortillas, usually there are 2  corn tortillas per street taco.  I’ve seen them filled with chicken, pork, beef, shrimp, etc.  Basically, my version of a street taco is a simple small taco with minimal toppings, though you can add whatever you’d like.

  • sour cream
  • shredded cheese
  • salsa verde
  • diced onions
  • lettuce

For my recipe I kept it simple.  I wanted a quick, easy recipe that could be on the dinner table in less than 20 minutes and this was perfect.  No more excuses for an unsatisfying meal when it can be this easy to make!

I cooked the chicken in my cast iron skillet, added the seasoning and viola… dinner was served!  Not to mention these awesome little street taco shells that I found at the grocery store!  Even though street tacos are typically on a corn tortilla, I prefer flour tortillas so I served mine on these.

Ingredients
  

  • 1 TBS olive oil
  • 1 lb boneless, skinless chicken breasts
  • 1 TBS cajun seasoning use less for less "kick"
  • 1 avocado
  • 1 cup pico de gallo

Instructions
 

  • Heat olive oil in skillet.
  • Dice thawed chicken into 1" cubes and add to skillet.  Sprinkle cajun seasoning evenly on chicken and cook until it is cooked all the way through.  (165 degrees internal temperature)
  • Evenly distribute chicken among tortilla shells.  Depending on if you use flour or corn tortillas you may need 8-16 shells.  I only use 1 flour shell per taco, if you want 2 soft corn shells per taco you'll need double the amount of shells.
