Pulled Chicken, Black Bean, and Corn Soft Tacos

Dinner Tonight: Pulled Chicken, Black Bean, and Corn Soft Tacos

For Breakfast I made some hash Browns and a slice of Toast. I used Simply Potatoes Hash Browns and for the Toast I used Healthy Life Whole Grain Bread. Did a few things around the house and then I was off to the hospital. My best friend was going to have surgery this morning. I went up to be with his sister and we waited together. He's going to be fine as everything went well. It seems like I've been at this hospital way too much of late, 2 friends of mine and my dad all have been up here the last few weeks. So often that the Parking Valets know me by name. Back at home I laid down for a bit for a short nap and to relax a bit. For dinner tonight it's Pulled Chicken, Black Bean, and Corn Soft Tacos.

I wanted something light and delicious so what better than some Soft Tacos. To make these I'll need the following; Old El Paso Flour Tortillas, 1 Rotisserie Chicken (Pulled Chicken), various Spices (to season the Chicken), 1 can Bush's Chili Beans (Black Beans in Mild Chili Sauce), 1 can Green Giant Steam Crisp Niblets (Whole Kernel Sweet Corn, sliced Black Olives, chopped Lettuce, Daisy Light Sour Cream, and Old El Paso Taco Sauce (Smoky Chipotle). The makings of something good!

I had purchased the Rotisserie Whole Chicken from Kroger yesterday afternoon. After getting it
home I pulled all the meat and stored it in a plastic container in the fridge until today when it was time to make the Tacos. I put the Chicken in a skillet and reheated it on medium heat. As the Chicken was heating I seasoned it with Ground Cumin, Dried Cilantro, Chili Seasoning, McCormick Grinder Sea Salt and McCormick Grinder Peppercorn Medley.

As the Chicken was heating I got my other ingredients ready. I opened up a can of Early California Whole Large Black Olives (Reduced Salt) and sliced them up. Then I got 2 small sauce pans; 1 for the Chili Beans and 1 for the Corn. Heated both until heated through.

With all the ingredients heated and ready I got the Soft Tortillas ready. I wrapped the Tortillas in
paper towels and microwaved them for 40 seconds. Now to make the Soft Tacos. I first layered in the Chicken, followed by the Taco Sauce, Chili Beans, Corn Kernels, Taco Sauce, Lettuce, and topped with a dab of Light Sour Cream. Loaded and ready to eat! Love these Soft Tacos. All the ingredients just come together to make one flavorful meal. For dessert later a Jello Sugar Free Dark Chocolate Pudding.



Like your chili zesty but with not too much kick? Add our Black Beans in a Mild Chili Sauce for the flavor you're after. We slow cook tender black beans in a tangy Southwestern chili sauce flavored from mild chili peppers, sweet tomatoes and onion to add just enough (but not too much) kick to your favorite recipe.
