Tasty Chicken Tacos

Mondays tend to be crazy hard at our house. I'm always looking for easy, yummy dinners for my house full of hungry kids! This looks great and I'm anxious to give it a try! I would serve a fruit salad as the only side (maybe chips and salsa) with this meal!

Tasty Chicken Tacos
from FamilyFun Magazine

1 tablespoon vegetable oil
1/2 cup minced onion
2 garlic cloves, minced
1 serrano chili, minced
1/2 cup tomato sauce
1 teaspoon cumin
1/2 teaspoon salt
3 1/2 cups shredded, cooked chicken
12 flour tortillas

1. Heat the oil in a large skillet over medium heat. Add the onion, garlic, and chili and sauté until the onion has softened, about 6 minutes.

2. Add the tomato sauce, cumin, and salt and continue to cook for one more minute. Add the chicken and cook until heated through, about 2 minutes.

3. Taste, and adjust the seasoning if necessary. Serve in tortillas with toppings of your choice.

Makes about 3 1/2 cups.
