Crispy ground beef tacos are amazing, but sometimes you need to shake up taco night. Healthy chicken breast and poblano peppers – with just a hint of spice – combine to make a quick and tasty taco recipe.

Serve this easy spice-rubbed chicken taco recipe with guacamole or sliced or grilled avocado, Spanish rice or cilantro rice and refried beans. But if you don't have time for side dishes, they're a great dinner all on their own.

Here's how to make it:

  1. Roast the poblanos over a stove burner or under the broiler until blackened. Remove to cool then remove the skin, seeds and slice into strips.
  2. Combine the olive oil and taco seasoning or cumin and chili powder. Stir to combine.
  3. Rub the mixture all over the chicken breasts. Season with salt.
  4. Cook the chicken breasts in a hot skillet until well browned on both sides and cooked through. Set aside.
