One night I was craving chicken tacos, and I ended up trying to make my own tortilla chips. I was surprised to find them simple to make and very delicious. They were a great addition to my quick and easy chicken taco/nacho recipe.
5+ corn tortillas
Mozzarella Cheese, shredded
Green chillies, chopped
1 tomato, chopped
1/4 onion, chopped
2-3 boneless chicken breasts
Heat 3 tablespoons of olive oil in a non-stick pan. Medium/High heat is preferred, but be careful when handling the hot oil!
Cut corn tortillas in quarters (I used small tortillas, so a quarter was the size of a chip) and place into oil. Heat the tortillas, flipping occasionally, for a few minutes until the tortillas have become crisp. I added salt and paprika while they were heating for an extra kick.
Cut the chicken breasts into bite-sized pieces. Heat a tablespoon of olive oil in a non-stick pan and add the chopped onion. After a few minutes, add the chicken pieces. Add spices to taste: paprika, salt, pepper, and green chilies. Cook until chicken is throughly cooked. Add chicken to chips and top with mozzarella cheese, tomatoes, and lettuce.
Super easy, pretty quick, and very delicious!
