Chipotle Chicken Tacos

These tacos are a favorite for me and my family!  And they are one of the easiest and quickest dinners I make.

Chipotle Chicken Tacos

  • 2 large chicken breasts, cut into bite-size pieces
  • 1/4 cup brown sugar
  • 3 tsp. adobo sauce
  • 1 1/2 tsp. salt
  • 1/2 tsp. chili powder
  • 1/4 tsp. garlic powder
  • 1/4 tsp. black pepper
  • 10-12 small flour tortillas
  • 1 can black beans
  • 1 white onion, chopped
  • 1 tomato, chopped
  • 1/2 cup Mexican cheese blend
  • 2 avocados, sliced
  • 2 limes, quartered
  • Sour Cream, opt.
Mix brown sugar, adobo sauce, and spices together.  Pour in ziplock bag with chicken and let marinade at least 3 hours. 

Cook chicken, and set aside.  Heat black beans on stovetop on medium-low heat.  Add a couple sprinkles of cumin, garlic powder, and salt to taste.  To assemble tacos, place chicken, black beans, onion, tomatoes, cheese, and avocados on a tortilla.  Squeeze lime juice over and top with sour cream if desired.  Enjoy!
