Great Easy Chicken Tacos

This recipe is super easy, fast, very low in fat & cost under $5 (depending on how cheap you can find avacado)! Now that's what I call a "cheap, guilt free" recipe!

2 Tbsp olive oil
1 tsp. cumin
1/2 tsp. chili powder (or taco seasoning)
1 small garlic clove
1 large chicken breast(or halibut fillets)
8 small corn tortillas
(toppings: shredded cabbage, onion, tomato, avocado, cilantro, lime)

Combine the olive oil, garlic, and chicken in a large nonstick skillet. Stir in spices and coat chicken well. Cook the chicken over medium heat for 2 to 3 minutes on each side until there's no pink meat or juices. While chicken is cooking, chop vegetables for toppings and heat the tortillas (either in microwave or on an 8 in skillet for 3 minutes) Fold tortillas and set aside covered to keep warm. Once chicken is done, assemble the tacos and serve with rice and beans.
