Chicken Tacos

Last Friday I came home from work exhausted and hungry.  I needed to come up with a quick dinner.  I decided to make chicken tacos because I love tacos and I had the ingredients.  You can change this recipe up to add your favorite ingredients.  This only took about 30 minutes to make.

1/4 cup Salsa
1/4 cup Chicken Broth
Black Beans
1 teaspoon Olive Oil
1/4 cup chopped Onion
2 Chicken Breasts, boiled and shredded
Reduced Fat Mexican Cheese
Fat Free Sour Cream
1/4 cup chopped Tomato

Step 1:
Boil the chicken for 6-8 minutes, until fully cooked.  Let cool for 5 minutes and then shred with a fork.

Step 2:
Heat the olive oil in a skillet and saute the onions until slightly browned.  Then add the tomato, salsa, and chicken broth.  Let reduce for 3 minutes.

Step 3:
Add the chicken and black beans and cook until heated.

Step 4:
Assemble the taco.  Spoon the saucy chicken and black bean mix onto a tortilla.  Top with cheese, sliced avocado, and sour cream.
