Avocados- Always a good idea

2 May

As Cinco De Mayo gets closer, all I am craving is avocados and chicken tacos. I was scouring google trying to find just a simple quick taco recipe with no luck, it seems like everything was a fancy version. I then turned to the trusty Better Homes and Garden’s website and eureka! If you are like me and appreciate the quick and easy than here is a recipe for you.

Party Idea: When having a group of friends over, do a make your own taco dinner. It’s an easy way to make sure even the pickiest of eaters can get exactly what they want. Also a plus for the host is everything can be prepared ahead of time.


  • Nonstick cooking spray
  • 1/2 cup chopped onion (1 medium)
  • clove garlic, minced
  • cups chopped cooked chicken
  • 8 ounce can tomato sauce
