Charring tomatoes in a hot, dry skillet makes them smoky and flavorful; in combination with fresh herbs and spices, they elevate this dish from “everyday” to “ta-da!” Serve the tacos with reduced-fat sour cream.

I made this for my boyfriend and his roommate tonight- to increase portion size I used three chicken breasts and estimated the vegetables. I also used cherry tomatoes (a regular sized plastic carton) and it was fantastic. Everything was delicious, and the boys raved about it. Definitely adding this to my list of staples!


This was awesome. Next time I'll try with shrimp. I did use a pound of chicken and it made only 6 tacos


This was delicious. A bit spicy for me, but I just picked out the jalapeno and it was perfect. It is amazing how much flavor these have. It only made 4 tacos for me, but that was a great portion for dinner for two. Most of these ingredients are already in your house, so go ahead and try it! You won't regret it.


This meal was amazing... I loved everything about it. I think some pinto beans and a little cheese on the side would have made it perfect. But like I said amazing


This is one of our family favorites. We use corn tortillas rather than flour tortillas just because we prefer them.
