Spicy Chicken Soft Tacos

2 Medium size boneless/ skinless chicken breasts
1/4 c White or yellow onion
4 tbs Garlic
1/4 c Ale (I used Rogue Brewery's Sesquicentennial Ale)
10oz Rotell diced tomatoes & green chilies
1c Precooked rice
2 tbs Olive oil
Salt and Pepper to taste

-Season chicken with salt and pepper and chop it into cubes
-In a large skillet partially saute 1/4 of the onions before adding the chicken and garlic
-Lightly cook the chicken before adding the beer, once the beer is added, cover and simmer for 10 minutes before removing the lid and letting the beer evaporate.
-Add the rest of the onions, the rice and tomatoes, cover and simmer on low medium heat for 15 minutes.
-Meanwhile warm the corn tortillas in a small covered skillet on low.
-Once the tortillas are warm serve up, no need to garnish with anything other than a bit of cilantro.

Ease: 2
Taste: 5

This recipe is great for a fun night with friends or just a quiet night at home with your family. If you aren't a big fan of spicy food substitute a mild Mexican diced tomato or just plain diced tomatoes. These tacos go great with beer, drink the same kind you used while making the tacos for consistency in flavor.
