Grilled chicken taco bowls

Grilled chicken taco bowls –a flavorful summer dish that can be made in less than 30 minutes!

One of my favorite things about summer is grilling! We use our grill several times a week and it seems to make everything 10x better! You just can’t beat grilled chicken. Now throw the chicken, black bean salsa and quinoa in a taco bowl and you’ve got an amazing dish!

I’m partnering with Old El Paso this year to bring you some new recipes using fresh ingredients that your family will love. Today I’ll be featuring their Stand N’ Stuff Soft Flour Tortillas. These are great because you can stuff all the yummy toppings inside. My kids thought they looked like mini boats. They loved them!

Grilled chicken taco bowls

Prep Time: 20 minutes

Total Time: 30 minutes

Yield: 6

Ingredients

  • 2 large chicken breasts (seasoned how you prefer)
  • 3-4 tomatoes, diced
  • 1 can (15 oz) black beans (drained and rinsed)
  • 1 can (15 oz) corn (drained)
  • 1 (4.5 oz) can Old El Paso chopped green chiles
  • ½ cup onion, chopped
  • ½ cup cilantro
  • ½ lime, juiced
  • salt and pepper, to taste
  • 2 cups quinoa or rice, cooked
  • ½ cup shredded cheese
  • 2 cups shredded lettuce
  • ½ cup salsa, cilantro lime dressing or sour cream (optional)
  • 6 Old El Paso Stand n’ stuff flour tortillas

Instructions

  1. 1. Heat grill to a medium-high fire. Season chicken as desired. Place chicken on the grill and allow to cook for about 5 minutes per side (or until cooked in the center). Remove from grill and cut into strips.
  2. 2. While the chicken is cooling, combine the tomatoes, black beans, corn, green chiles, onion and lime juice in a medium sized bowl. Stir until combined and then salt and pepper to taste.
  3. 3. Layer the quinoa, chicken, black bean salsa, lettuce, cheese and dressing inside the stand n’ stuff flour tortilla.
  4. 4. Enjoy!

Notes

Tip: For perfectly grilled chicken, place in a zip top bag and then pound the chicken with a rolling pin, so it becomes even. This will help the meat to cook through evenly and become tender.

I picked the cilantro and tomatoes fresh from my garden. It added the perfect touch to these taco bowls. BTW – I am shocked my garden is still alive. I thought I would have for sure killed it by now. ;)

I used quinoa for the base, but I was also thinking this cilantro lime rice would be super yummy!

I also drizzled some cilantro lime dressing (same one I use in my BBQ chicken salad) on the top. I love that stuff! My husband topped his with a little salsa and sour cream. Both had great flavor!
