Oh today I didn't want to slave in the kitchen so I stirred up this quick, tasty, easy meal.
Thinking I was just having dinner alone tonight I just thaw out a small bag of ground chicken. At the last minute I was having two more mouths to feed.
Thank goodness for my "go to" can staples in my pantry. Although I prefer to cook with fresh (or dried, ei. Garbanzo beans) items when cooking meals but its wise to stock up on some can goods in case you are in some last minute bind.
For vegan friendly just omit the poultry & cheeses and replace with plant cheese and add more veggies.
Enough said ok here is what you'll need.
1 can garbanzo rinsed
1 jalapeño pepper seeded & diced
1 florida avocado peeled & diced
1 plum tomato
1/2 c black olives sliced
1 c shredded lettuce (or greens if choice)
1/4 c shredded cheese of choice *optional
1/2 c chopped onions
1 c of ground chicken *optional **see note
1/4 c chopped onions
1/4 tsp homemade taco seasoning or seasoning of choice
light sour cream
Salsa verde, taco sauce, hot sauce or any sauce of choice.
1 dollop of light sour cream *optional
A hand full or two of Veggie & Flaxseed Tortilla chips (or any tortilla chips of choice)
**For homemade taco seasoning recipe , check my blog - a previous post.
If using ground chicken.
In a non-stick skillet over medium high heat add ground chicken, taco seasoning and cook for about 3 minutes. With wooden spoon break up the meat chunks. Cook for about 5-7 minutes stirring occasionally. Set aside.
In a salad bowl add tortillas, onions, olives, tomatoes, lettuce , garbanzo beans and jalapeños and toss. Add ground chicken, sprinkle cheese and dollop with sour cream.
You can drizzle salsa verde, hot sauce or any taco sauce of choice. Yum.
