Easy Chicken Tacos

 

These Easy Chicken Tacos are my favorite choice of a quick and inexpensive meal to serve to my family!

There are a few reasons I like these so much! I always have chicken in the freezer, lettuce, tomato and cheese in the fridge and I am usually able to find a deal on tortilla shells easily so I almost always have those too!
With the way our household is with the kids working and going to college, there is always someone that is not at the dinner table. Chicken Tacos are something any of my boys can heat up and make in 5 minutes AND its a healthier option than frozen or processed foods.

Ingredients:
4-6 Boneless Chicken Breasts
Hard Taco Shells or Soft Burrito Shells
Tomatoes
Lettuce
Shredded Cheese
Black Beans
Corn
Beans
Sour Cream
Taco Sauce
Salsa


Instructions:
Cut chicken in cubes
Cook chicken on stove in frying pan in butter and minced garlic for a little flavor until all pink is gone
If chicken is frozen, you can still cook in pan frozen and as cooking, remove chicken and cut into smaller pieces
You can also use our [Crockport Chicken Method here](http://old.couponsforyourfamily.com/shredded-crockpot-chicken/)
Cut tomatoes, lettuce and serve with shredded cheese and numerous options of beans, corn, peppers or whatever your family likes
Wrap items in tortilla and microwave for 10 seconds and serve



The main cost of this meal is the chicken but the chicken goes a far way with all of the rest of the inexpensive ingredients that I have gotten close to free using sales and coupons. My ideal price for chicken is $1.49-$1.79lb and I load up my freezer when lower than $1.59lb. I can usually make these tacos for approximately $12 for 6 of us which is only $2 per person!

I actually double this recipe and make with 4-5lb packages of ground beef when on sale in a Ground Beef Meal Deal at Tops Markets. Depending on the size of the beef package, you can get up to 14 peppers and then freeze half for another dinner!!

To serve this dinner to a family that does not all like peppers, the filling makes for great tacos/burritos!! I always try to keep some on the side for my more picky eaters!!!

My Corningware size dish I have had forever fits seven of these large peppers perfectly. My dish also has a glass lid to make heating through quicker. You can find this 4L Corningware dish here. I have had mine for over 20 years and well worth the money!!!

Pressure Cooker Baby Back Ribs

Quick & Easy Pressure Cooker Baby Back Ribs Recipe!!

Recently I bought one of those “new fangled” pressure cookers.  I wasn’t sure exactly what I was getting myself into but must say…..I LOVE IT. I have made macaroni & cheese, cooked chicken in 10 minutes, these fabulous fall off the bone ribs and numerous other items. The food is fabulous each and every time.

This is a very easy and fast recipe for Baby Back Ribs that is delicious every time you make it in the pressure cooker. It is great with original BBQ sauce, but if you prefer some different flavor, then try different types of BBQ sauce until you find what suits you and your family.  Enjoy!!
