Basic Chipotle Chicken Tacos

Basic Chipotle Chicken Tacos

Omi Longmire

"This is very basic. My husband isn't a fan of veggies in things, so if you add onions and peppers even better! It can get very spicy so this isn't a dish for bland food lovers - even the 'mild' ways to cook it have a bite."

  • Ready In

  1. Place chicken in a resealable plastic bag; add chipotle peppers in adobo sauce and 1/2 of the beer. Squeeze out excess air and seal the bag. Marinate in the refrigerator, at least 1 hour.
  2. Heat olive oil in a skillet over medium-high heat; pour chicken and marinade into the hot oil. Cook and stir, adding the remaining beer, until chicken is no longer pink in the center and the juices run clear, 20 to 30 minutes. An instant-read thermometer inserted into the center should read at least 165 degrees F (74 degrees C).
  3. Shred chicken in the skillet using 2 forks and serve in corn tortillas.


  • Cook's Note:
  • For a milder taco, cook only the marinated chicken breast, do not cook with chipotles. Dos Equis(R) is my favorite beer to do this with, but I'll use whatever we have at hand without losing too much of the flavor.
