Servings 6 tacos


  • 6-8 medium flour tortillas
  • 1 pack ground chicken breast (mine was 0.77 lbs., anything from 0.5-1 lb. should work)
  • 1 teaspoon ground cumin
  • 1/2 teaspoon garlic powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon onion powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon smoked paprika
  • 1 tablespoon olive oil
  • 1/4 cup BBQ sauce
  • Salt & pepper to taste


  • Iceberg lettuce shredded
  • Avocado sliced
  • Tomatoes (I used grape tomatoes)
  • Onion chopped
  • Sour Cream
  • Lime quartered


  • Pre-heat oven to 375F to warm tortillas. Place tortillas in foil to warm them all at once.
  • Add olive oil, chicken, cumin, garlic powder, onion powder, and smoked paprika to a skillet over medium-high heat. Cook for about 8-10 minutes (or until cooked through), stirring often, and breaking up the meat.
  • While the chicken is cooking, prepare the veggies and rest of the garnish.
  • Once chicken is cooked, add BBQ sauce and stir to ensure chicken is evenly coated. Add salt & pepper if needed.
  • Serve tacos immediately and garnish as desired.


  • Feel free to use taco seasoning instead of the individual spices if it's easier for you!
