Quick and full of flavor, you can adjust heat by removing the seeds from jalapeno. Garnish tacos with chipotle ranch, salsa verde, and avocado. I make the chipotle ranch with fat free sour cream to save a bit of calories.

  • Heat 1 tablespoon olive oil in a skillet over medium heat; cook and stir chicken and taco seasoning mix until chicken is no longer pink in the center, 5 to 10 minutes. Mix rice, black beans, Mexican cheese blend, olives, and jalapeno pepper into chicken; cook and stir until heated through, about 5 minutes.

  • Heat a separate skillet over medium-high heat; warm tortillas in skillet until pliable, 1 to 2 minutes per tortilla.

  • Fill each tortilla with about 1/2 cup chicken-rice mixture, folding tortilla over filling.

  • Heat bacon grease in a skillet over medium heat; fry the filled tortillas until crispy, 2 to 3 minutes per side.

These were great! Getting them to stay folded over while frying was a bit tricky so I used a toothpick. For me 1/2 cup of filling was impossible for a corn tortilla. A couple of tablespoons max is all you could put in them to get them to fold over and stay folded over while frying. It is important to not skip step 3. The tortilla's need to get that flex in them or they will just crack and break when they hit the hot bacon grease. Great recipe! Read More
