  1. Prepare your tacos/tortillas as directed on the packaging.
  2. Place your onions, green peppers, and oil into a non-stick pan/skillet on medium/medium-high heat and cook until the onions are soft. Add in the garlic and chopped roasted red peppers. Cook until the garlic is fragrant (don't let it burn).
  3. Move the veggies to the edge of the pan and place your ground chicken in the center. You'll want to keep breaking apart the meat as it cooks.
  4. In the meantime prepare your Taco sauce by combining in a small bowl your spices and corn starch. Then, add water and Tabasco sauce, stir well to combine.
  5. Just as the chicken finishes cooking (roughly 5-12 minutes) stir to combine all the veggies and the chicken together, breaking apart any large pieces of chicken. Add your sauce mixture and stir together. The sauce will thicken, coating the chicken mixture, add additional water/broth if needed one tablespoon at a time. Allow the sauce to cook through. Cover and set aside.
  6. Now you're ready to assemble your tacos. Spoon about 2-3 tablespoons of the meat mixture into your shells, top with cheese, guacamole, tomatoes, lettuce, and enjoy!
