Soft Chicken Tacos

Six-inch corn tortillas are the ideal size for small hands to hold. Encourage healthy eating by letting the kids assemble their own tacos with a variety of nutritious fillers.  Try ingredients like diced tomatoes, low-fat cheese, shredded lettuce, diced cucumber, avocado slices, grilled vegetables, and lean meat or fish to make this fun, fork-free meal complete.

Parents, if your children prefer a mild flavor, omit the chili powder and cumin and season the chicken with salt and pepper. Shredded lettuce may also be used in place of cabbage.
