Instructions
  1. Prepare your ingredients and put in individual bowls. This saves time when you begin to assemble your tacos. Heat 2 Tbsp of EVOO (Extra Virgin Olive Oil) over Med/High Heat, Add Cubed Chicken. Salt & Pepper and add Southwest Seasoning. Add Lime Juice. Saute' for 3 minutes, just until heated thru. If you are using raw chicken, cook for about 7 minutes, tossing and turning until cooked thru. You will love the smell of this chicken! Turn off heat. Warm Corn Tortillas on flat skillet until hot, turning every few seconds. (You can fry your tortillas in Canola Oil, and form your shells, if you want). Assemble your tacos! Start with your cubed Chicken, then add green chili, onion, cilantro, tomatoes, shredded Arugula and finally cheese. Top with your favorite salsa. Serve with extra Salsa and Tortilla chips
  2. Helpful Hint, you can use already roasted chicken that you can cube. My husband is the "grill master" in our house, so every Sunday, he smokes or grills our chicken and pork for the week over Applewood and we use it in my recipe's throughout the week. The meat is so amazing!
  3. The star of this show is the Hatch Green Chili.... It's a beautiful green color and so full of flavor. It has a bite, so be prepared, you can add as much or as little as you like. I like ALOT. It's full of Vitamin C and is good for you...You will acquire a taste for it, just as I did 16 years ago. When we travel, we never go without packing this wonderful food!
