Guedo Tacos

4 chicken breasts – flattened
2 T. oil
2 T. garlic powder
2 t. cumin
2 T. chili powder
¼ t. oregano
dash of cinnamon
juice of 1 lime

2 dozen corn tortillas
½ lb. grated cheese

½ head cabbage, core removed and shredded
limes- quartered (to squeeze juice on tacos)
tomatoes – diced
onion – diced
sour cream
Pico de Gallo

To flatten chicken place breasts between 2 sheets of plastic wrap and pound with the flat side of a meat mallet. This allows the meat to cook evenly. Place the chicken breasts in a zip lock bag and add oil, garlic powder, cumin, chili powder, oregano, and lime juice. Refrigerate and allow to marinate for at least 1 hour. Remove form marinade and grill until chicken is done. Allow to rest 5 minutes before slicing. Slice into thin strips.

To make tacos: Pre heat a non-stick skillet. Take one corn tortilla and dip in water. Place in the hot skillet. Add a small handful of cheese and top with another wet tortilla. Allow to cook about 1 minute or until tortilla starts to brown. Flip and cook other side. Place on plate. Add several pieces of chicken and top with garnishes.
