Coat chicken breast halves in a spicy mixture of chili powder, cumin, and crushed red pepper, grill, and serve in flour tortillas.  Top with your favorite taco toppings—lettuce, tomato, cheese, cilantro—for a one-dish Mexican meal.

How to Make It

Step 1

In a small bowl, combine chili powder, cumin, paprika, red pepper, salt, pepper and brown sugar. Stir in oil; mixture will be moistened but crumbly.

Step 2

Generously rub chicken on all sides with chili mixture. Let stand at room temperature for 30 minutes to marinate (or cover and refrigerate for up to 1 day).

Step 3

Preheat gas grill to medium, or preheat broiler to high and set rack 6 to 8 inches from source of heat. Grill or broil chicken until firm, about 5 minutes per side. Let cool for 5 minutes, then cut into thin strips.

Step 4

Warm tortillas as package label directs. Serve chicken with tortillas.

As a lover of tacos in general, this is a great alternative to ground / processed meat. Watching Food Inc was enough for me to look for an alternative to ground turkey or beef and this recipe was exactly what I had been looking for. Will make again.
