Baja Taco Blitz

I picked up the new cookbook by Hungry Girl at the library this week and wow ~ lots of yummy recipes to try. I fixed the one for Baja Taco Blitz last night and it was d-lish. Below is the recipe from the cookbook but I adjusted it to 4 servings. I didn't use avocado (ick!) and cheated by using regular taco shells. Oh and I used a little olive oil to saute the chicken and sprinkled with garlic powder for flavor. MY these were good! DH loved every bite.

Baja Taco Blitz
2 small corn tortillas
4 ounces raw boneless skinless lean chicken breast, cut into strips
1/2 small onion, sliced
1/4 large red bell pepper, sliced
1/8 avocado (2 small slices)
1/2 cup chopped iceberg lettuce
2 T shredded fat-free cheese (cheddar or a blend)
2 T fat-free sour cream
1 T salsa
1 t cilantro
salt and black pepper, to taste

Spray pan with Pam and set stove to medium heat. Cook onion slices in the pan for 2 minutes. Add pepper slices to the pan and continue to cook for an additional 2 minutes until veggies are a little crisp. Remove veggies from the pan and place them in a bowl.
Cook chicken strips in the pan until cooked throughout and then add them to the bowl with the onions and peppers.
Heat toritillas in the pan for 20 seconds on each side. Remove and plate tortillas.
Season the onions, peppers and chicken to taste with salt and pepper, and then place them evenly into the center of each tortilla.
Place one slice of avocado on each tortilla. Finish by topping with lettuce, cheese, sour cream, salsa, and cilantro. Roll 'em up and enjoy!
Makes 1 serving.
