Easy Chicken Tacos

I had both kiddos home sick yesterday.   So, yesterday was a hectic day.  Did I mention that my husband works from home on Tuesdays and Thursdays?  No?  Well, he does so we had a full house yesterday.

Dinner sort of snuck up on me.   Not that I’m saying it tip-toed up behind me and spooked me or anything.  It just got late quicker than I expected.

So, I needed a quick, easy dinner.

Does that ever happen to you?

Because I use freezer cooking, I have cooked chicken and beef in my freezer.

My attempt at a homemade 3D picture....

This recipe is quick and easy.  You could make it with chicken or beef.

  • 1 to 1 & 1/2 pounds of diced cooked chicken
  • 1 can of black beans (drained and rinsed)

We use up the left over party plates.

What are your quick, go to meals?




  1. I love easy freezer meals! I’m already digging into the lentils I froze after the last crockpot cooking frenzy–clearly time to restock!

    • I’m almost out of the cream of mushroom soup I made a few months ago. I need to buy more mushrooms and make another batch.

  2. This is something my son would love! And I like making meals like this that can keep in the frig for a day or two so whenever he’s hungry he’s got something there for him!

    • They’re great for left-overs. I’ve got probably half a meals worth left in the fridge right now.

  3. The perfect week night meal, or lunch, or midnight snack, or maybe breakfast.

    • My husband shares your ideas. He had some for a late night snack!

  4. Did you save me a couple. Or just one?!

    • 🙂 I’ve got as many as you want!

  5. I should probably be more on the ball about having pre-cooked stuff in my freezer. I always tend to forget about the defrosting time. Great post!

    • I love having a few pre-made items available. They defrost quickly when you add them to sauces. 🙂

  6. hope the kids are better today 🙂

  7. excellent idea to have emergency food on hand. This looks like a good meal too! c

  10. My son gets nachos pretty routinely….I top them with leftovers and he loves it!!
