Chili Lime Tacos


These are great and have fresh flavor. I highly recommend serving them with salsa and guacamole in addition to the suggestions below.

CHILI LIME TACOS

1 1/2 - 2 lbs. boneless, skinless chicken breast, cubed
1 tsp. olive oil
juice of 2 limes
2 Tbsp. red wine vinegar
1 tsp. sugar
1/2 tsp. salt
1/2 tsp. ground black pepper
2 tsp. chili powder
1 tsp. cumin
2 green onions, chopped
2 cloves garlic, minced
1/4 cup chopped fresh cilantro
10-12 (6 inch) flour tortillas

In a small bowl, combine vinegar, lime juice, sugar, salt, pepper, chili powder and cumin.

Heat olive oil in a saute pan over med-high heat. Saute chicken until browned and cooked through. Reduce heat to med-low and pour lime mixture into pan with chicken. Add green onions and garlic and cook for about 3 minutes. Add cilantro and stir.

Serve in tortillas with chopped tomatoes, shredded lettuce, sour cream, and shredded Monterey Jack cheese.
