Salsa Chicken Tortillas

I promised earlier this week I would share a new, easy favorite recipe using homemade salsa. In case you missed it earlier, here's the salsa recipe.

First, you'll need boneless chicken breasts - one per family member. Lightly season one side of each chicken breast with taco seasoning. Drizzle olive oil in an iron skillet and heat to medium to medium-high heat. When ready, put in each piece of chicken seasoned side down. You'll want the heat high enough to sear the outside of the meat. Lightly sprinkle the other sides of the chicken breasts with taco seasoning. After 3-4 minutes when the cooked sides of the breasts appear deep brown, flip them and sear the other sides for about the same amount of time. When the chicken is done, turn off the skillet but leave it on the burner. It will remain hot for some time.

Remove the breasts from the pan and put them on a cutting board, slicing them into small strips. Then put all the chicken strips back into the pan. Scoop in a generous helping of the homemade salsa and mix well. The skillet will probably be warm enough to heat up all ingredients, but if it's not you can turn it back on low for a few minutes.

You're done! Dish a couple of spoonfuls into the center of a flour tortilla. Add your choice of toppings: avocado, sour cream, lettuce, etc., and roll up the tortilla.

I love this because it's a quick supper that can be made easily after soccer practice, is healthy, and everyone in the family agrees it's yummy.

Don't you love Tex-Mex food on a weeknight?
