My mother-in-law bought me the Perfect Tortilla Maker for Christmas and boy has it been getting a work out at my house! We are now having taco salad night at least once a week. I was a little skeptical at first since most of the as seen on TV stuff is never as wonderful as it looks. Using the Perfect Tortilla maker is super easy and really cuts down on cooking time. Making a taco salad is so much easier now. Usually when we have tacos I have to sit over the stove frying up shells since we don’t like store-bought shells. So here is my simple taco night recipe!
- 4 Chicken Breasts
- Flour tortillas (I use jalapeño cheddar tortillas…AMAZING!)
- Your favorite marinade ( I use lime and Chef Murritos)
- Red Onions
- Refried Beans
- Shredded Cheese
- Sour Cream
- Your favorite hot sauce
Marinate your chicken in your favorite seasoning. Letting it marinate over night is recommend but as we all know not always possible.
Send your husband out to the grill to cook up those chicken breasts!
While your husband is slaving away on the grill pre-heat your oven to 425 degrees, chop up the lettuce, onions, tomatoes and the avocados.
Place the tortillas in the Perfect Tortilla Maker (do not use any non-stick in the bowl) letting them cook for 5 to 8 minutes. I check on the tortillas around the 6 minute mark but they usually need a few more minutes. I like mine crunchy! Take note that after they come out of the oven they will firm up a little more.
While the tortillas are cooking shred your cheese and warm up the beans.
Your husband should now be in the house with yummy chicken. Shred up the chicken and make yourself a yummy taco salad!
Tip: I like to use a fork to poke a few holes in the tortillas, this prevents air bubbles while cooking.
