Well now that's the recipe I've been searching for!

We love Mexican food in our house just as much as we love Thai and Chinese foods. Lately it seems we've been eating tacos every single week. Nothing wrong with that!

Once again, another shout out to one of my favorite food blogs - Blog Chef - for this great recipe and the recipe I really have been searching for for a shredded chicken taco (aside from my orange shredded tacos I make).

Such an easy and delicious recipe. Flavorful, tender and quick to make.

I made the recipe exactly as Blog Chef did. Don't hesitate, make this now. I served with some refried beans and chips and salsa.

2 boneless, skinless chicken breast halves
1 (4 ounce) can tomato sauce
¼ cup salsa
1 (1.25 ounce) package taco seasoning mix
1 teaspoon ground cumin
2 garlic cloves (minced)
1 teaspoon chili powder
hot sauce (to taste)

Step 1: In a medium sauce pan add chicken breasts and tomato sauce. Bring to a boil; add salsa, taco seasoning, cumin, garlic and chili powder. Reduce heat and simmer for 15 minutes.
Step 2: Start pulling chicken apart with 2 forks into strings. Cover and cook for another 5 to 10 minutes. Add hot sauce. At this point you can add water if needed as well, if the sauce becomes too thick. Cook until chicken is fully cooked.
(Makes 4 Servings)
