Weeknight Chili Chicken Tacos






Need to eat fast? These tacos come together in no time and use ingredients that you probably already have in your fridge. Heating the tortillas gently in a dry skillet makes them easier to fold, yielding a neater finished taco. Serve with lime wedges and a tossed salad.
