Whether you're a food snob or not (my degree in Culinary Arts hasn't stopped me, yet), on a tight budget or have plenty of money, Aldi is worth a look. Here's a recipe I make all the time with ingredients purchased at Aldi.

What you'll need

  • 3 boneless, skinless chicken breasts
  • 1 packet taco seasoning
  • 12 flour tortillas
  • 1 c. each shredded cheddar cheese and shredded Monterey Jack cheese*

Helpful Tip:

*Use more of less cheese, depending on your taste. Serve with salsa, sour cream, and sliced black olives.

How to make it

  1. Place chicken in large skillet and cover with water.

  3. Shred chicken well.
  4. Sprinkle seasoning packet over the chicken and mix well.
  5. Place approximately 1/4 cup of chicken on one tortilla; spread to edges.
