Chicken, Black Bean and Corn Tacos

I love tacos. They are easy and quick to make and eat. My problem though is that I can’t stop myself and end up eating too many.

I found this recipe a few years ago on the back of a box of Ortega Soft Taco Kit. I didn’t have a packet of taco seasoning on hand when I made these last week, so I used some fiesta seasoning that I bought at my friend’s Tastefully Simple party. The tacos turned out great. Very tasty.

My new favorite taco cheese is the Sargento shredded Pepper Jack. I used a more mild cheddar for my kids.

Chicken, Black Bean and Corn Tacos

  • 1 package of taco seasoning OR 1-2 Tbsp of fiesta seasoning (season to your taste)
  • 1 Tbsp Olive oil
  • 1 lb boneless, skinless chicken breast – cut into small chunks
  • 1 small onion – chopped
  • 1 16oz can of black beans, drained and rinsed
  • 3/4 cup frozen corn
  • 1/2 cup water
  • 2 Tbsp lime juice

Heat oil in a large skillet. Add chicken and onion and cook until chicken is no longer pink and onions are soft.

Stir in the seasoning, beans, corn, water and lime juice. Bring to a boil. Reduce heat and cook for about 5 minutes to thicken the sauce.

Load up the soft taco with cheese and the bean mixture.


Excuse me while I indulge…
