Chicken Soft Taco Filling

In the past when I’ve made chicken soft tacos (which was seldom), I used a store-bought package of taco seasoning.  Last week, as part of the Eat From the Pantry/Freezer Challenge, I made do with what I had on hand.  These were the most flavorful chicken tacos I’ve ever made, especially with homemade tortillas!

Chicken Soft Taco Filling

recipe by Cara


  • 1 teaspoon oil
  • 1/2 onion, chopped
  • 1 teaspoon minced garlic
  • 2 cups cooked chicken, chopped or shredded (I used leftover Perfect Roast Chicken)
  • 1/2 can  Rotel
  • 1 teaspoon cumin

Heat oil in a large skillet over medium heat.  Cook onion until soft.  Add garlic, cook for 30 seconds.  Add chicken and cook for 5 minutes.  Add Rotel and cumin, cook for 20 minutes, stirring occasionally.  Serve with homemade tortillas.

  1. Oh yum! I’ll have to remember that.

    I’ve been using this mixture as taco seasoning for quite a while (mostly w/ ground beef or turkey) and think it’s better than the packaged stuff:
    1Tbsp chili powder
    1tsp of each ground cumin, garlic powder, paprika
    1/2tsp salt
    (I think the original recipe also called for oregano & onion powder, but I didn’t care for the taste with those…)
