Method

  1. Taco seasoning may be made up ahead of time. To prepare, combine chili powder, cumin, salt, cornstarch, paprika, coriander and cayenne pepper in a bowl. Mix with wire whip to combine.
  2. In a skillet, heat oil. Add chicken and sauté 3-4 minutes. Add water, Chicken Base and taco seasoning. Stir to combine until chicken is well coated. Continue to simmer until liquid is absorbed, about 3-4 minutes.
  3. If desired, heat taco shells. To assemble tacos, spoon 3 oz chicken filling into each shell. Top with 1/2 oz taco sauce, 1/4 oz lettuce, 1/4 oz cheese and garnish with tomatoes.

Serve tacos with optional garnishes, such as diced avacados, black beans, pico de gallo and sour cream.
