Basic Chipotle Chicken Tacos

Basic Chipotle Chicken Tacos - World Cuisine

The recipe for these tacos is very basic, but they are perfect for moms on the go. You can make them in less than 30 minutes and you won’t need any special ingredients. There’s a little cumin, some chili powder, salt, pepper and some garlic powder to flavor the chicken. The vegetables that I use include onions and peppers – any will do! And then all you need is an avocado or two to top it off with creaminess after cooking. It doesn’t get easier than this!

prep: 15 mins cook: 20 mins additional: 1 hr total: 1 hr 35 mins Servings: 6 Yield: 6 servings


1 tablespoon olive oil

1 (7 ounce) can chipotle peppers in adobo sauce

3 pounds skinless, boneless chicken breast halves

1 (10 ounce) package corn tortillas, or as needed

1 (12 fluid ounce) can or bottle dark beer, divided


Place chicken in a resealable plastic bag; add chipotle peppers in adobo sauce and 1/2 of the beer. Squeeze out excess air and seal the bag. Marinate in the refrigerator, at least 1 hour.

Heat olive oil in a skillet over medium-high heat; pour chicken and marinade into the hot oil. Cook and stir, adding the remaining beer, until chicken is no longer pink in the center and the juices run clear, 20 to 30 minutes. An instant-read thermometer inserted into the center should read at least 165 degrees F (74 degrees C).

Shred chicken in the skillet using 2 forks and serve in corn tortillas.
