Chipotle Lime Chicken Tacos

I love tacos, lime and cilantro.  So when I came across this recipe I had to take a shot at making it.  It’s fairly simple to make and only takes about 20 minutes to enjoy the sweet, tart and savoury tacos.


  • 2 boneless skinless chicken breasts, sliced into strips
  • tortillas (corn or flour, I used whole wheat flour)
  • 1 onion, sliced
  • 1 red bell pepper
  • 4 cloves garlic, minced
  • Juice from one lime
  • 1 tsp lime zest
  • 1 jalapeño pepper
  • 1/2 tsp salt
  • 1/4 tsp black pepper
  • 1 tbsp ground cumin
  • 1/2 tbsp ground chili chipotle
  • 1/2 cup salsa
  • 1/3 cup chopped fresh cilantro
How to make it:
  • drop some oil in a nonstick pan
  • brown the sliced chicken adding salt, pepper and cumin. Transfer to a bowl and cover with lime juice.
  • Reduce heat to medium and add drop of oil.  Add onion and cook until translucent.
  • Add bell pepper, lime zest, garlic, jalapeño and chili chipotle.
  • Stir in salsa and the cooked chicken until heated through.
  • Remove from heat and stir in cilantro.
  • Place tortillas on a plate wrap in plastic wrap and throw in the microwave for 45 seconds
  • Spoon into tortillas and chow down
