I make chicken tacos about every other week. Tortillas have become a staple in my house, and I always have chicken, so throwing these together is super easy. I can make these tacos out of my pantry in no time. Even better – they’re so easy that it’s not problem for my older children to make them for supper, now that they’re old enough to start pitching in on mealtime duties.

Try the shredded cabbage – you’ll be surprised at the great crunch it gives.
They are also pretty daggone healthy – we use whole wheat tortillas, skip the cheese, and add lots of fresh veggies, so this is a win-win all around!
