Traditions are sacred in our family, and many of them center around food. From preparing the meal to sitting down at the table together and eating, talking and laughing, these are the times that we cherish and will hopefully be long remembered by our boys. Whether a weeknight dinner or special Sunday brunch, meals are when everyone can slow down and spend quality time as a family.
For us, every Friday is homemade pizza night (keep an eye out for that post soon!) and every Tuesday we of course have tacos. The type of tacos has varied over the years, however right now we are loving chipotle chicken tacos. I originally found the recipe from one of my favorite food blogs, The Defined Dish, and we just slightly adapted it by reducing it in half. Her recipes are phenomenal, and this one is a favorite in our family. Super easy to whip up on a Tuesday night, this recipe is sure to make it into your weekly rotation!
Chipotle Chicken Tacos (serves 4)
- 1 tbsp olive oil
- 1 lb ground chicken or turkey
- Salt and pepper
- 1/2 tsp chili powder
- 1/4 tsp cumin
- 1/4 tsp dried oregano
- 1 1/2 tsp tomato paste
- 1/4 cup chicken broth
- Siete crispy taco shells
- Shredded purple cabbage
- Shredded cheddar and vegan cheddar
- Lime wedges
Heat a skilled over medium-high heat, and add 1 tablespoon of olive oil. Next, add the ground chicken or turkey and season it generously with salt and pepper. Brown the meat until it’s fully cooked through, breaking it up with the back of a spoon. Next, reduce the heat to medium, and add the cumin, chili powder, oregano, and tomato paste and stir until combined. Pour in the chicken broth and let it simmer about five minutes. Serve the meat in Siete crispy taco shells and garnish with guacamole, salsa, shredded purple cabbage, cheese and lime wedges.
